At my job my availability is 8am to 7pm. I have it that way because I am a single mother of three. No one there has kids and if they do they are not living with them or they have help. I'm pretty much the only one who supports 4 people and live on my own. No one there understands anything when it comes to the kids. Well anyways Friday they had me down for 4pm- 9pm. They know I can not work that. I had told them Wednesday that no one will baby sit that late for me and I will trade anyone if they wanted. There was no one with in my hours that could trade. I texted the manager again to let her know I still cant find a sitter. All she wrote back was yea ok. So i texted the GM. She told me it is my responsibility to find someone because it was my shift. Well I honestly don't understand how its my responsibility when I told them i cant work that shift. I gave them since Wednesday to find someone. They told me i will be wrote up. Also not one of the managers or gm have a child!!!Answer Question

If you were hired with the understanding that you can not work past 7PM then they do not have a right to schedule you to that shift. If it is in your personnel records that you were hired under those conditions, they can not schedule you nor write you up for it. That does not mean that they will not do it, just that you can complain to HR and they should be able to straighten it out.
It does not matter if they have kids or not. They were not hired, nor were you, on the basis of their dependents. Whatever is outside of the jobs is each person's own affair and does not have any bearing one what goes on at work. That is a losing argument.
