New boss is making my life miserable. ...

I swear she's trying to get me to quit. I have limited availability, bc dh and I cannot afford much childcare, so I work from 9-2, mon-fri. 20-25 hours a week. I have been with the company 16 months. I'm fully trained and good at what I do. But this new boss keeps pressing me to open my availability. I explained why I can't, and she just doesn't seem to get it. She tries scheduling me odd shifts, hours and days she knows I'm not available. Apparently I'm not the only one she is doing this to, either. No real point here, just venting because I love my job (or i did,anyways).....

Put it writing. Have it put in your file. Tell her you wanted to make sure she had your availability in writing to clear up any confusion.

Your entitlement is astounding.



You work when you are scheduled to work.

Don't be surprised if your employment ends soon. Availability or not, you may not be valuable enough to work around.

A company that pays you to work your scheduled shift is not treating anyone like a slave.

I doubt that. That's just what you have convinced yourself.
