We are in the busy season and a normal 40 hr job has turned into a 60+ week job. This means that they will work us like animals to get everything shipped. Me in the shipping office I am going crazy answering phones, filing, faxing, emailing, doing paperwork, using the computer, and doing all the other duties and responsibilities of a office worker. Sunday is a day of rest, and also a day that I use for certain activities. For one the singes group is having a ministry function meeting this sunday and I have volunteered, and also they are having a get together. These are to my advantage as at this group I am making contacts, building relationships, and this can lead to a better paying career. Contacts is 70% more successful at finding employment over applying on the web according to some sources, so I need to take these events seriously.
I very much want to get out of debt, but I am not gonna do it with my income. I also am finding little time these days to even interview due to my work schedule and the demand for me in that office. I had an employer contact me about an interview for a job paying $15/hr or something of the sort, but I was unable to go due to job demands. I am finding that its even hard getting a second job, as my current employer will demand all your time when they are busy. This makes it veyr difficult to get ahead.
So how should I approach this about sunday off? Since there will be no trucks, and the company we contract for is off weekends, my guess would be that the phones will not be going crazy, and the demand for my duties can be taken by the other office worker, who wants to work sunday. I cannot lie and call in sick but I do not want to work sunday.
