I am about to be laid off in November. I have an oppurtunity to go work a gig out of town and it runs thursday through sunday for the first 3 weeks in October. I will make over $600 for 4 days. So it's good money
Now I work 40 hours a week here at my job(M-Fr) but I only bring home less than $400 a week.
I want to request off for the three days (w-f) for the first 3 weeks in October,
So I would work M-T here at my regular job then go out of town Wed-Sun to work the gig
The only thing is my manger is giving me a hard time. I don't see the big deal because all of us will be without a job by November 15th. Ihave a young child and I just want to make as money as I can before I am unemployed
I can choose to just go and call out( they will probably fire me) or I can just stay and work just one of the weeks. I am going to speak with my manager tomorrow. What should I say?
I was honest with my direct supervisor and she said she needed to talk with the manager and he said "they need me here'. I am going to speak with him myself because he need to hear it from my mouth and not from my other supervisor (she may have told him incorrectly)
What should I do? I need all the money I can get

Just curious, do you have a place to stay while working the out of town gig? If not, and you will have to pay for somewhere to sleep, then consider that as a liability against what you will make. Is it worth risking the job you have now for a few weeks of a higher paying job? Do the math and figure out what works best for you and go from there. Good luck.
