Our work had bookings everyday within the last few weeks, as the panic of the virus made its way all over the news, our everyday bookings were calling up to cancel people who had booked in the near weeks to come even called up to cancel.. we lost so many reservations, with that each day my hours would get cut, from a normal 8 hour shift to 6, 5 to the lowest 3 hours and then with that my days got cut..I had no chance to get overtime like I use to, then we just shut! Just like that our doors were closed, it was so last minute I only worked 11 hours that whole week, I’m in the process of two home rents due to personal issues, I have debts I can’t pay, monthly bills I’m worrying about as the days get closer to payment, I’m barley able to pay rent as it is and put food on the table. now my savings have gone with this I’m awake most nights just wondering what I’m meant to do and I know so many are in the same vote as me!
With this apparent help the government is allowing us to get from Centrelink is great, but the impossible task is being able to get it !! The site is always down they say don’t come in, but you have to to get a reference number if you’ve never had Centrelink! I’ve tried hours on phone calls to get through to someone but it’s always automotive and un helpful.. I’ve been applying for jobs everyday and I get nothing not a single email, phone call..
I’m trying to stay positive but I’m always feeling the stress of what’s to come next..
