How to Save your Job if being "set Up"?? Major Chain Store!

This is Serious & horrible! A local Major Store gets rid of its higher longer Employed employees! I've heard of it happening to others!! Now this is what's going on.. First she's told to stay longer. Finish the Jobs not done. Since others didn't come in to work. She does. Then since by law- she didn't have A Required Lunch Break. She's Coached on this! Next they have new time clocks. She left at her scheduled time. But they made up A later time saying that's when she punched out. Saying now she'll be Coached again! She's never done anything Wrong there. They threatened her Work this Schedule or get NO hours! Pregnant or not! Made her mop & do unSafe things with A Doctor's excuse saying she can't! Has them use unsafe/Hazardous equipment that could result in Serious injury Etc... This is a horrible place to work. But times are tough. You do what you can to survive! You take Work & do it! Employees can't help or they're Next!
