my boss reduced my hours

I am a graphuc designer who works at a small local paper, my boss cut me down from 40 to 30 hours, which is part time. When I signed my contract late sept, it stated I would be hired as a full time designer

now she cut my hours to 30 and the office mang to 20 hours

get this, she wants me to do her job when she is not there, do the advertising and the production of the paper.

in 30 hours, is she nuts? I work 50 hours a week now. I don't get paid for overtime

so until I find another job, I will have to give up my car. its hard to afford gas, when you got bills to pay. Plus food is more important.

The worst thing is that the grocery store is across town, a half hour walk from my house. hangs head. This so sucks.

I got bills to pay lady, you own the bleeding busn, and have a gov job, your husband works for the gov. and she moved to Ottawa in October and didn't hire a new editor.

I am so stressed.

I am over worked

now have to do three jobs, two more plus mine

now I have to pay less on my student loans and credit card(and I almost would of have them paid off.)

I am going to be so poor till I get another job.

know anyplace looking for a talented layout designer? newspaper, magazine let me know.

When I was still working I got cut from full time to 3 hours. That's not a mistype. The store eventually closed. Either she's about to go out of business or she's trying to make you quit.
