I was told today that the owner of the place I work for wants us Night staff personnel to start working 12 hour shift to be able to keep our pay grade. We already work 10 1/2 hr shifts. I had to admit to the director that at 56 this job is already taking a toll on my physical wellness and that I didn't think I could manage another 1 1/2 hr without putting myself at risk for an injury. I'm afraid now that I may have sabotaged my job and put myself in a firing position. Is there another way I should have handled this, or was being honest the best course? My job is already physically challenging to the point I'm in constant pain and I've already fell once although I didn't go to the dr out of fear of being fired.
