I have a part time job, which is still currently open for takeaway. However because of the loss of dine in customers my manager is trying to ration out what little shifts there are available between all staff which means all our hours have been cut dramaticly.
I’m thankful that I still have some hours for now but we are putting ourselves at risk by still working. I wish the government would step in and help us so we can isolate and help flatten the curve. Obviously we all still need money so I will work for as long as I can. I’m from NZ so I have no access to centrelink so I have to continue working or I’ll be in big trouble.. I usually also pick up 2-3 extra shifts per week through need a barista and back up barista but right now the shifts have run dry.
It’s worrying knowing that this situation is probably only going to get worse and I have nothing to fall back on. Rent and bills will be due very soon. Scary.
