My husband (MR) had lost his previous job early in July, through no fault of his own. He was unfairly let go because he is a diabetic & the Safety Coordinator at the plant where he was working took it upon himself to determine that my husband’s medical condition could possibly pose a safety risk to himself or other employees. To our knowledge, the man who made this determination has never had any sort of medical training in order to be in a position to determine such a thing, nor had MR ever caused, or ever came close to causing, any sort of safety issues during the six months that he was employed there. But, all of that is now water under the bridge & the subject for another blog post.
MR received a call today that he is to report for training & orientation tomorrow at 9:00 am! So, yea! After nearly a month without any income, we will have a steady paycheck coming again, starting sometime later this month. Thank goodness, too, as we are literally scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to pay the utility bills, the insurance premiums & keep us in bare minimum necessities, like food & toiletries.
MR had put an application in with this company about two weeks ago & had been called in for an interview several days later. The interview had gone really well & the position sounds like it could end up being very promising. The lady who interviewed him was so impressed with him that she has sent him to get his drug testing done immediately after the interview. He had just been waiting on the results of the drug test and background check to come in. Of course, we were not concerned about the results of either of those tests to come back with anything but totally clean results.
The problem is, the position he has been offered starts out at a much lower wage & with less hours that will result in a bring home pay of less than what we actually need in order to cover all of the bills. Hopefully, we can hold out & somehow make ends meet until he is moved into the management position that he has been promised, which will have more hours & pay enough for us to be able to cover all of our monthly expenses. Heck, we may even be able to have a couple of nickles left over at the end of the month!! Whoo Hoo!
So, here’s hoping that things are starting to turn around for us! I really hope that everything will work out for MR & that he will like the people he will be working with and that they will like him AND treat him with respect!! Keeping my fingers crossed!
