  • You can try explaining to your boss that school wont interfere with your work schedule, or its possible that you got hours cut because of the type of job you have. Business doesnt pick up again untill Octobor for the holiday season. So you might just want to ask. Maybe he/she thought that they were doing you a favor by holding your place at work while not over whelming you with hours!!!!

  • First, you need to ask him why your hours were cut. Second, you may be eligible to collect some unemployment compensation. delete your answer Third, it is definitely time to start a stealth job search. Join us at Job Hunting Moms:

  • Yikes, that was harsh. I would ask why your hours were cut. Who knows perhaps it was a good thing. Have you ever thought about working from home? I recently did and I'm very happy with my desicion. The best part is that I work around my family's needs and work whenever I want.
