I'm an essential worker too and we have NOT been given any sort of hazard pay but we have to provide our own hand sanitizer, masks, etc. Our CEO is a hard-core Trumpeteer and he thinks this whole thing is a hoax. I kind of hope enough of us get sick at the same time that he'd be forced to shut down just as a giant "I told you so" to him.

I'm an essential worker and my work never really changed, throughout the whole pandemic. The only thing that's super annoying is the amount of people who now think it's appropriate to facetime in public. My break is now full of people shouting over each other, while they stare at their phones. There are plenty of quiet, private spaces in the building. A bathroom stall or public breakroom ain't it.

I'm an essential worker. We have to buy our own supplies, but we're given a certain amount in our pay to cover the cost. We have NOT been provided PPE, we have to find them ourselves, and there's no extra money given for that. Just got my check and this is the second time that the supplies money is missing - I have to wait two more weeks for it to be included in the next check. PISSED OFF!

Here's the chain of events that is messing me up- 1. Got to have a cabin getaway- amazing during quarantine!- and randomly cracked a molar in half 2. Went for a root canal. 3. Found out I'm not a good candidate for a root canal. 4. Had molar extracted. Work is being very sympathetic but this whole escapade has put me almost completely out of commission for about two weeks. My big fear is that people are mad, or that if they are getting along fine without me, that they will decide I'm not needed. I'm still taking Vicodin and napping throughout the day. I know I need to rest, but this sucks. My anxiety is through the roof.

Setting up a meeting at 9:30am when I've returned after 6-weeks working elsewhere is not ideal. At least give me a little time to catch up on all these damn emails.

In response to a confession. That sucks! I worked third for years because of the extra money. That's the whole point of working third, holidays, etc. More cash.

In response to a confession. I also work at a large hospital. Last year they took away the shift premiums from 2nd and 3rd shift staff. A lot of people left over that.

I don't really want to talk about this with anyone irl, so I'll share with you ladies :) Housecleaner here. Boss called with a job for today. It was a tenant move-out. I don't like these jobs, bc tenants generally don't give a crap about a house that isn't theirs, so it's hard work. But I needed it. I've had a lot of cancelations - we're supposed to be payroll protected, but we haven't heard anything yet. I'm also qualified for unemployment since I was hired for a major job at the beginning of March that's on hold bc of COVID, so I'm waiting for that too. Ya'll, this was the absolute most disgusting pigsty I've ever seen in my life. Having worked in hospitals, I've seen some gory stuff, but this was stomach churning. I almost started crying. Icing on the cake was accidentally picking up a, um, not clean dildo (thank God I was wearing gloves). Like wtf is wrong with people?! How do they live like that??? My boss said if I see something like that again to just walk right out.

IDGAF. Seriously. Call me what ya want. I'm just gonna be over here dealing with all this bullshit regardless of what you think. And lets be honest- does anyone have the mental energy right now to care what random internet strangers think at this point? Anyone? I can barely get through a fucking shower without bursting into tears.

In response to a confession. I think you're right. I work for a large hospital that sends an email every time someone retires. We get them almost everyday now. Nurses, techs, environmental workers, kitchen staff, you name it. People are jumping ship.
