So I have been miserably unhappily at my job as an entry screener at a hospital. However, when I am at work I put on my happy face and still put in a 100 percent and that means helping my co-workers when I need it. However, I have also had to stand up for myself. I had to stand up and say no I cannot work four 12 hours shifts, no I can't work 48 hours a week because I already have another job taking care of my mom. Then I had to stand up and say listen I can't keep working night shifts because I have to get my son to bed and off to school the next morning and that leaves me with five hours of sleep because I have a commute to work. I said "How about we negotitate?" I can work a night shift on the weekends and then on other days when I am not working for my mom I can do a few 8 or 10 hour shifts. As long as I am not having to stay til 9 at night. Well my supervisor is cutting my hours, she is planning to promote someone who just started a few weeks ago who I trained to be a supervisor and seems to like bouncing me from one building to the next despite knowing that it's hard for me to do alot of working due to a back injury that makes my legs weak. I feel like I am being tortured for standing up for myself. Since when is it wrong to stand up for yourself and not let yourself be steam rolled. I know the other two women being promoted put in 50 hours a week with no complaints and I am looking for a new job somewhere else but I just can't figure out why I am being kicked and knocked down. Mind you none of my co-workers have been treated like this and one of them has made it a hobby to call off all the time and the other one is always mouthing off to the boss.
