Problematic Work Environment
So, I’m a convert to Judaism. I converted 7 years ago. I started working part time at a salvation army thrift store (I also work with the school district with Autistic Children). I really needed more more to survive. So this year I took off for Rosh Hashanah ….but they scheduled a “manatory” meeting on that day. I did not show up since I had taken the day off. No one said anything about it, but they put on the schedule that I would have to work on Friday to make it up. So there was no school on Friday…I said “great”. They offered the evening or morning shift. I reminded the manager that I don’t work Shabbot.
So I get a call reminding me to come into work on Friday evening. I reminded the manager that I took the morning shift. She became angry and said “I knew this would happen”. There is no one else who can work for you…so you will come in?” So I told her I would not come in but would turn in a two week notice.
She called me about 30 minutes later and said “We can’t afford to lose you…you’re a good cashier so I just got someone to cover your shift Friday.” I feel like she views my beliefs as invalid. She always telling me she will pray for me…but in a kind way. And now I’m considering still giving notice.
What do you think???
