Hi friends...So I lost my job in October of last year due to my incompetence and made a mistake on some of the tickets I was supposed to complete before I ended my shift. I own that it was my mistake and accepted my firing. But I expected to get unemployment insurance to hold me over till I found a new job. Unfortunately, the AMAZING INDIVIDUALS at E********* Wireless decided to mark my incompetence as “Misconduct” which legally bars me from collecting unemployment.
I was slow some days due to my mental disability (I’m bipolar) and I informed my employer of this when they complained about my lack of productivity. I was TOLD when I got hired my disability/slow work days won’t be punished but it still happened. I don’t want to dwell on it forever. I’ve been looking for work months and haven’t had luck due to living in Chicago in 2020(and you know…COVID)
I don’t want to be that guy but I gotta pay rent. No one in my family is rich, my parents made less money than me when I WAS working. I need help paying my bills so I can function. Even just a dollar to keep me from going negative in my bank account.
That’s all I have, I’m open to question if you have any. @LunasMcWorst on twitter.
Thank you for considering.
*I censored the name because I'm still in court to get my benefits but it's not likely I'll when because the company hired a lawyer and I'm penniless and can't afford one.
