I thought long and hard about my life during this pandemic. How close everyone who is still alive came to death. How my last few jobs were exploitive and abusive. How I was poisoned over years with noxious chemicals at that toxic print shop. How I was threatened and abused there.
How I was threatened and abused at the job after. Coworkers stealing my mobility device. Threatening to make sure I don't get an ambulance if I need one. Making fun of my weight. My other PCOS symptoms. My boss joined in on that one. How HR wouldn't even help me transfer to...
...another facility. For the cameras to be magically malfunctioning when I am being threatened by a customer. Yes, actual threats of violence. And all of this for poverty wages. Don't forget the promise of a pension that they then skirted, giving me the runaround & saying I was..
just shy of the required hours, the hours they dictate l, mind you. The position officially stated it qualified, but yeah.

I think about all of this, and how many people who died in this country, over HALF A MILLION dead people. I wonder how many of them were like me, working..
for abusers. Working in abusive and damaging situations. Putting up with the degradation because it's just what people do in this world. Working hard to get noticed and hopefully get a better situation in a system that profits on the opposite.
Working for a company who said "we're all in this together" before firing every single part timer. Disabled and chronically ill people take part time jobs, so there you go. We are obviously not all in this together, oh entity who posts your budget online.
It is for all these reasons I am taking a chance and going back to help an even older job reopen. I will be making minimum wage there, too, probably. So nothing changes in that regard, but at least the environment is more chill.
I will also be working on streaming video games and stuff, but probably not under this name. This is just to keep themes separate and organized. You know how some people get about weed themed stuff. Shoot, or maybe I should. Still need a cute USB headset and mic. No face reveals!
Taking this risk is important to me. I have suffered long enough. I can't let others degrade and erode me. Life is so fragile.

And they are bastards. 🖕
