• My mom makes me late for work?

    I'm a 17 year old junior in highschool. When I was 16 my mom said I needed to get a job and since I'm not allowed to do sports I had no problem with it, plus I can make some spending money.

    I'm a 17 year old junior in highschool. When I was 16 my mom said I needed to get a job and since I'm not allowed to do sports I had no problem with it, plus I can make some spending money. The thing is my mom won't let me get my drivers licence and I need a parents signature to get one and my dad isn't in the picture so my mom needs to drive me.This is technically my 3rd job because the first place was a fastfood chain and at the end of the interview the manager said I was hired but when I told my mom about it she refused to let me work there because "it's embarrassing" to work fast food. My second job I ended up getting fired due to always going in late because of my mom. On top of that she told the rest of the family that I was fired for sleeping on the job which is a complete lie. My new job I already have 2 write ups for being late. The thing is it's my moms fault an when I try to explain it to her I get scolded and she turns it around on me. I get home from school around 3:15 and I need to work at 4:00. I can make it in time If I walk straight from school because it's about a 45 min walk but my mom makes me come straight home plus the area my job is located is a sketchy area and it's common for muggings to happen around there. i would take an uber but my mom forbids and its a bit risky if there is none in the area and I'll end up being late anyway. What happens is I will be ready and my mom will wait until the last minute to take me. I swear she does it on purpose

  • My unemployment benefits in Oregon are running out and I only have less than a month left what should I do?

    I’ve been applying for work, applied at recruit agencies and have not got any jobs yet. Unemployment extenders in Oregon are no available at this time.

  • 2019 tax return?

    Best answer: The IRS is not processing returns until Jan. 28. H&R may have accepted your return, but it hasn't been filed with the IRS yet. Don't even bother checking again until at least Jan. 30. They'll be bombarded with returns and it will take several days for the status to be posted.

    A company offered an interview and I declined. I declined through a recruiter who passed them my CV and the recruiter said it wasn't a problem, that he'll let the company know and will keep looking for opportunities for me. I'm also still waiting to hear back from 1 other company the recruiter sent my CV to. I'm extremely worried I made a mistake. The reasons I declined to interview was: 1. The pay is very bad. 2. The journey is more than inconvenient (not the length of journey, which is fine at 1 hour, but the mode of journey). 3. I have another interview coming up which I'm much more keen on (will look amazing on my CV if I got it), offers much better pay, better journey, overall better job description But that being said, it's only an interview. I may have made a mistake. There's no guarantee I'll get the job after the other interview. I may have backed myself into a corner.. How much of an idiot am I?

    Hi yahoo. About to hopefully start a new job however my references are messing up my start date (references sent 8 weeks ago). One was from my university personal tutor that has not completed a reference and when emailed today they said that because I left the university early they do not want to send one (8 weeks too late). Another is from a previous employer who I had bad relations with, but has ignored my follow up email asking again for a reference. This could damage my application as the company is asking for 3 full years of references. Are they allowed to keep me in the dark like this as I should have started last month (and so I am a month behind on pay for example) Sorry it got long winded, cheers for any help

My dad passed away in 08 and I understand how hard it must be to deal with bills on her own but she has her boyfriend staying with us now and he’s SUPPOSEDLY helping her so why should I have to pay her certain amount of money a month? I’ve tried to tell her I can’t do it and I’ve cried and everything. She just wouldn’t take no for a answer. She wanted over $100 a month. Told her I could only do $50 a month (really can’t even do that) so ig that’s where we stand. My question is What would you do in this situation? Should I have to give her money?

    Here's the situation: I recently moved into a university-type housing complex with two other guys who are like me (grad students, busy, quiet, respectful). The complex filled the room above me in the same townhome with a guy that has become an absolute nightmare. He's constantly having friends/family stay over and are always coming in and out of my house 24/7 leaving the door unlocked and even wide open. We do not live in a safe area and I'm concerned about someone breaking in. He's constantly smoking weed (which is against out lease policy) and blasting music/stomping around 24/7. He's also stolen our food/cookware but we aren't able to actually prove it was him. Given all of this, you would think it would be enough to get him evicted but it doesn't seem like management will evict him, just fine/warn him which hasn't done anything. Is this enough that if I wanted out of my lease, I could get out? Also, we live in an area where marijuana is legalized so its not against our law, but the lease says it's prohibited. He's affecting my sleep at night and I've been overall depressed because I can't come home to a place that isn't filled with his sketchy friends or go to sleep knowing the door is probably left unlocked. Any help is greatly appreciated

    I know that the idea leaves a bad taste in many people's mouths, and most politicians dare not propose it. But if we try the novel idea of being honest about the situation, here's what we know: When social security went into effect, a large percentage of the population didnt live to be 65. And of those who did, most of them didnt see 70. It was meant to be a little extra income to help sustain you in your final months or years. But then, a population boom began the very next decade and has lasted perpetually. Furthermore, most people are living to 80 nowadays and many live WELL into their 80s and beyond, and are collecting way beyond what they put into it. The amount paid into the system hasnt touched the amount being taken out for a long time, and something has to give. We can simply not talk about it, pretend we don't have a problem, but if it's raise the age and keep the system around, or let the system implode upon itself and no one gets anything, then which would we rather have? Going on as it is now permanently is simply not in the cards, and our hand may bust sooner than we think.

    I have just got the job of my dreams. But it is only a six month contract . At the moment I have a full time well paid job with good benifits close to home and brilliant paid holidays. If I leave I will never get the job back but if I go I will be dropping in wages away from home and my family often for days at a time. The job is all I have ever wanted to do and have battled to get it. I always thought I would never make it so it wouldn’t be an issue. I am torn between loosing my present job being away from my family but the job would be the opportunity of a live time. Any advice !!!
