I did What You Dont Do As a Salaried Worker( because Im tired and angry)
For a year plus now, my work offline has been hard, when the pandemic hit,many people were let go and for those that stayed, we have to keep things moving.
So recently,I was just like working nonstop, coming home at 8 pm, eating dinner then sleep before 9 pm most of the time because I was just too tired. So I asked my boss "but why are we really working like this"? and he told me "in Labour regulations, it`s allowed to make employees work 6 days a week so go on with it".
So that`s what I and most of us was made to do most of the time 6 days straight, then on my free day,my brain will be "dead" my body aching so I spent every free day "sick in bed" it`s funny, on a free day, I managed to be sick, come workday, I always manage to drag myself up. ( I know a workmate who worked 10 straight days)
As much as we're all working hard to keep the paycheque coming, I felt I`m doing more because my direct senior has managed to be sick on different occasions, they only worked 28 different days in the last 60 working days. You know, there`s nothing to lose if you have a fixed salary so long as you can produce a doctor`s confirmation, you`ll still get your full paycheque.
Today I went to the highest boss and said
You know, you can as well fire me now because I feel, this is a bait to get me fired, how can you accept that someone is sick for 32 days and every single time I`m supposed to jump and come do their work(my last 2 vacations I had to go work and put off the vacation till when I don`t know).
You can as well fire me now but I`m not working with this person.
So now I'm waiting and really do not care if I get fired. Anyway, we have a strong......I don`t know what you call it in your place, we call it here ALK,which means I`ll still get 70% of my present income while I look for a job for the next 2 years.
And what? I really don`t care, right now I'm just angry.
