I work as a cocktail bartender catering to private functions. AInce the government announced restrictions to all large gatherings, my shifts have disappeared. What’s worse, my boss isn’t able to help because he’s had every single shift cut, so he has no income either. No one in the company has work this week. Even though I’m casual, I get a lot of requests from customers who we;’ve worked with before and so I had work lined up till the end of April. I am a single mother and have two children who rely on mum to stay calm cool and collected, but this is really hard to do when my income has vanished over night. Rent still has to be paid, bills are still coming in, and while before I felt like I was in a really good position despite my casual status, now I’m panicked.
