If I had available vacation time or personal time, this is when I would be using it.
Unfortunately, I do not. I am a Temp worker. Even though I have the same responsibilities and, well, everything else as the other employees here, I am not considered a "full time employee" despite working 40 hour weeks.
The reason is that THIS department doesn't have the money to pay me, so it has to come from somewhere else. So I work for the department and do the same stuff everyone else does but I get absolutely zero benefits.
Everyone else gets great insurance, tons of time off, paid holidays...etc. I get nothing.
I've already had to renew my temp service once, and I'll probably have to do it again because even though they need me to work here, they can't afford to give me benefits.
If anything I'll be working more the days after it comes out, because everyone else will be taking their time off then, so I'll have to cover for them...
Yea, it sucks.
Toasting makes me uncomfortable. But toast I love. Never start the day without a good piece of toast. In fact, let's toast to toast.
