SHAWN McDONALD-WE ARE BRAVE
I lost my job back in August .I was making good money so I bought a house after being in a apartment for 12 years . Last year they started cutting our pay and they said they were going to be cutting the fat . Thats meant they were going to looking to get rid of people . I also had a supervisor that had a grudge on me cause I had made a mistake three years ago . I also had a couple of other supervisors that didn't like me cause the way I look and my age Im 58 . They were going telling everyone how old I was .They didn't like cause i keep the gray out of my hair and I wasn't as young as the other guys . anyways Im a contractor that goes to Afghanistan for 5 months strait and we work 7 days a week sometimes 12 to 13 hours a day with on 1 meal a day . But just to make the story short the next thing I was so tired and I made a mistake but someone else made a mistake on the other shift and I was also blamed for that mistake cause they wanted a cause to be rid of me . So now here I am struggling on unemployment trying to find another job to save my belongings after Ive work so hard to get . And I also have to help my relatives in the Philippines . I just feel like Im up against the hate of world . Its really hard especially when you get older seems like your up against more hate from the younger generation .
