Around the Kansas City, Lawrence, Leavenworth, and Topeka (KS) area, the entry level jobs are only part time. Only the premium jobs are full time. I have been laid off since November, and I'm still looking for a steady income. My last job at Dillon's grocery in Topeka lowered my hours to only 16 hours in the third week. I went to HR and got a snippy answer of "I cannot guarantee any hours". I only lasted three weeks since I was driving from Leavenworth to Topeka. They hired plenty of people without any promise of any hours. How can Dillon's do this (not legally speaking but morally)?
Side note- I have cut down majority of my expenses, including moving to a smaller place, giving away my beloved dog, and discontinuing internet connection (I'm using internet at the library).
Thanks in advance.
Sincerely, Frustrated to the Max

You have to look at it from a business stand point. If you are entry level you are replaceable, most likely not as committed (not you personally but in general), if they can get away with only having you there part time there is a whole bunch of benefits they dont have to pay for... it is a financially sound business decision... it is NOT personal.
