When DH and I got married 6 1/2 years ago he worked as a laborer in a factory....it was his longest job he had held in his whole life....he was there about 6 years when they fired him, and he always had complaints about people, how they did things...the list goes on. He was unemployed for close to two years after that and got hired somewhere else. Same story. Complaints about everyone and everything! Employers being unfair to him because he's male in a female dominated industry. I can believe it to a point. Fired again. Unemployed a month and got on at another job via a reference from a close family friend that works there.....it's been three weeks and he's already having problems with people, procedures....etc etc (this place does have a bad reputation though)...so again I can believe it to an extent.
However, whenever I was employed anywhere......there was RARELY IF EVER a problem that wasn't solved smoothly. Nobody I disliked or hated, no employer so crazy that I couldn't come to understand and even like eventually after I got to know them. I've only gotten "fired" once because of an injury that happened before my probationary period was up....so it wasn't on bad terms or something I intended to do wrong...
I feel like it's my husbands attitude and communication that are affecting his work relations. I've brought it up to him a few times in hopes that it would enlighten him as to why issues keep happening in the work place but he chalks it up to bad employers/coworkers, and basically the people and places themselves.
I'm at my wits end. How do I cope with this kind of up and down lifestyle? After a few jobs being lost I'm tired.
I've had employment and he has not supported me in it. I feel like I'm out of options.
Thanks for reading....*depressed and defeated*
