AN UNDEFINED REASON

(VISALIA ,CA USA)

I HAVE HAD A SERIES OF THREE DEATHS IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS IT HAS TAKEN A TOLL ON ME EMOTIONALLY THE MOST RECENT BEING FEBRUARY 11,2010 MY UNCLE PASSED AWAY AND MY WIFE WAS TRYING TO GET AHOLD OF ME THE WHOLE DAY.FINIALLY SHE GOT AHOLD OF MY BOSS TO GET AHOLD OF ME. HOWEVER I WAS NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE OFF WORK AND DEAL WITH THIS. NOW PRIOR TO THIS MY WIFES GRANDMOTHER HER AUNT AND MY GRANDFATHER DIED ALL BETWEEN 07/09 AND 01/10 MY FATHER EVEN TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE. MY BOSS KNEW ALL ABOUT THESE INCIDENTS. I CONTINUED TO WORK STEADY THROUGH THE WHOLE TIME. NOT TO MENTION WE R NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE A LUNCH THEY BELIEVE WE EAT WHILE WE WORK. NOT TO MENTION THERE ARE SEVERAL FAMILY MEMBERS THAT WORK THERE AND LONG TIME FRIENDS THAT HAVE SCREWED UP ALOT OF THE SHOWERS WE INSTALL AND THEY NEVER GET REPRIMANDED. IN FACT THEY MAKE SNIDE REMARKS LIKE "I DONT CARE IF WE GET OUR JOB DONE CUZ I CANT GET FIRED" OR THEY WOULD SAY HOW DOES IT FEEL TO KNOW UR GETTING LAID OFF SOON. ABOUT A MONTH AFTER THOSE COMMENTS MY UNCLE DIED AND I WAS A LITTLE UPSET. WHEN I RETURNED BACK TO THE SHOP I WAS APPROACHED BY MY BOSS ASKING WHY I HAD AN ATTITUDE, IF I WAS ON DRUGS AND HOW WOULD I LIKE TO WORK AT MCDONALDS. I WAS TOLD I HAD AN ATTITUDE AND I HAD TO GO HOME AND THINK ABOUT IT BEFORE THE NEXT MORNING. THE NEXT DAY I WAS GIVEN A WRITE UP STATING I WAS GIVEN 2 HOURS OF WORK AND 2 1/2 HOURS OF TRAVEL TIME. AND IT TOOK 9 HRS TO COMPLETE. NOT MENTIONING THAT WHEN MY BOSS LOADED THE TRUCK HE FORGOT 4 MIRRORS WHICH CAUSED INCOMPLETE SERVICE ON MY JOBS. WHEN INFORMED OF THET AND THE HEAVY FOG THEY SAID IT WAS O.K. AT THE END OF THE DAY I HAD BEEN WRITTEN UP FOR MY ATTITUDE AND I GUESS WORKING TO SLOW. IT WAS WRITTEN THAT THIS WAS MY FIRST WARNING NEXT TIME IT BE A 3 DAY SUSPENSION W/O PAY AND AFTER THAT IT WOULD BE TERMINATION. I WAS ALREADY STARTING TO GET SICK AND ALL THIS OCCURED ON FRIDAY. I CALLED IN SICK MONDAY WHICH I HAVE NEVER DONR BEFORE. AND TUESDAY I WENT TO WORK NO INCODENTS OR COMPLAINTS FROM THE BOSS. WEDNESDAY 2/24/2010 CAME I WENT TO WORK AND THEY SENT ME TO KNIGSBURG THEY SAID ID BE DONE EARLY AND WHEN I WAS TO HELP THE OTHER CRUE. I WAS FINISHED BY 11:30AM I OFFERED TO HELP THE OTHERS AND THEY TOLD ME NOT TO HELP RATHER THAN TO COME BACK TO THE SHOP. I WAS INFORMED THAT A GUY FROM THE FRESNO SHOP WOULD BE COMMING DOWN A COUPLE DAYS A WEEK TO WORK AND MY POSITION WAS RELIEVED NO REASON NO 3 DAY SUSPENSION NO NOTHING.
