Temporary Work Stoppage
« on: March 18, 2020, 02:51:24 am »
Hi All,

Today my workplace told the staff of 600+ employees that the studio was closed for 14 days (and tbh we expect longer because that's just the 2020 Covid Pandemic world we live in), and that as of tomorrow we would all be sent home and suspended without pay. This was a pretty heavy blow for me financially, not to mention others.

The thing is, if I'm reading the letter of the law correctly, this might have been illegal. At the very least, it's massively shitty of them.

If I could get a little extra boost to either get what I'm owed, or opportunities in the crisis, or something, I would appreciate it very much. (LMK if your powers want offerings. I'm poor but I have a ton of incense, some booze, some of the cleanest tap water in North America, and a lot of pent up energy.)

So sorry to hear that, and working on sending the requested boost your way.

Oh good, but I suspect it may have been someone else who read but didn't get chance to reply to your post, because the universe usually doesn't
