  • There is always a job opening somewhere -- malls, fast food restaurants, warehouses.

  • Well did they know you were pregnant? You may possibly be able to say it was because they didn't want to pay you the maternity benefits...
    But I know it sucks but waitressing is always an option..or just getting a few part-time jobs. They can NOT turn you away because you are pregnant because then you can sew them for discrimination.

  • Oh and you get unemployment too if you were fired.

  • well your not going to be able to prove someone fired you because you were pregnant or won't hire you because your pregnant. thats just stupid its just like saying oh they didn't hire me because i'm a different race. anyways. look in the newspapers under classifieds. i don't know what you did before but serving is a good job if you just need something to get you through til the next job. i worked at fridays which was part of cedar point but i never left with less then 180 a night. but if you have an aldi's around you they pay real good also. umm its hard to tell you what to do because i don't know what you did before. but there are jobs everywhere if you just look! Good luck!

  • I know right now is a real hard time to lose a job and find another one. If where you live is anything like mine. Are city is just dying and losing every possible type of income around. But someone above mentioned unemployment and that would probably be best right now until this job market goes back up.
