I was just fired 7 months ago. Still unemployed. Not really looking for another job, Im pregnant and not many people want to hire me for just a few months. I got my unemployment because I was wrongly fired. He didnt have reason to, his secratary made a bunch of stuff up, and when unemployment asked him for documentation he didnt have any! HA! I had never even heard of the crap he was talking about! He needs to learn how to manage his staff better.

I was fired just a month after I came off of maternity leave. The company had hired a bunch of people to cover my leave but when I came back they got rid of me instead of them.....which violated the terms of my leave. I am now receiving unemployment also because they made up a bunch of lies about how I was never doing my job and I was absent all the time. The unemployment is paying way more than that job was.

I got fired once. It took me 1 month before I found another job. It was 3 dollors less in pay but it was a job and I was glad I got one at least.

Greenday - What a day!
Yes, once. I was a temp worker at an office, but I was going to have to start college soon and needed something part time, I found another part time job through the same company that got me the temp job, but when my temp boss found out he just told me to leave then, no need to finsh the week. He acted mad about it, even though I was up front with him from day one that I wouldn't be able to do the entire job, I was just going to be there until someone else could fill the position or I got a part time job.

I was laid off once... that was no fun. I actually suspect it had something to do with race but it is only a suspicion but at the time it was not a pleasant feeling.

I believe I was fired from a race issue also......but like you said, only a suspicion.
