I was working as a telemarketer at home and yesterday I got fired. My team leader said I did something that I was clearly not doing. Now, I am here with 3 kids, tons of bills, and no job!

Pray
Take a deep breath
Try to enlist help from family, close friends, search for government assistance
And job hunt like a mad woman. Good luck!

Do you have documentation (emails, receipts, anything) that can call into question whether your supervisor is telling the truth? If you were fired based on a false claim, that's wrongful termination.

Sorry to hear that!  I have lived through it.  Twice.  I have landed on my feet, and things are looking up!  Keep positive. job hunt before the kids wake up, and every few hours after.  My goal was applying for 5-10 jobs/day.  And yes, let the government help for a little bit.  That's what they are there for. 

Remember - you are not alone!  You have us too!

Are you eligible for unemployment while you look for something else?

Hang in there and apply, apply appy - anywhere you can.  It WILL work out.  Have faith!

I'm sorry.  That really sucks.  The only advice I can give is get out there and find another job.

I'm sorry. Take a breath and try to see the positives. Maybe you can go to a temp agency or use some assistance while you find another job

I'm sorry. Start looking into any stay at home jobs you can find, talk to friends and family to see if they know any where.
