In 6 acts.


1. In March I was offered a number of higher-paying jobs, and when leaving my employment at Bose received a counteroffer to accept a new position within the company instead.

2. I accepted the position, and on the day I started the company had its largest layoff in history. The managers were then busy and put off training for myself and my new coworkers for a week, and then two weeks.

3. On the third week, every member of my team was fired on the same day. We suspect they were making room for senior employees who had since received layoff notices. This was confirmed when we discovered that in our few weeks of employment, they had received job offers for the same role.

4. Every employer who has expressed interest in me revokes their interest after speaking to my previous employer.

5. At this point I've applied to a litany of jobs and have changed my strategy to bypass my former employer with the help of some coworkers who are sympathetic. But in the meantime I've exhausted every possible option to make and raise money from my own belongings. Nothing of value remains, I've cashed all checks, and I may be weeks away from pulling off a new job.

6. I received an eviction notice today. I have a place to stay temporarily but this one is also in danger.


To propel myself forward from this newfound rock-bottom position, I've budgeted what I would need for rent, food, and any other minor payments in the meantime.

In BL's history I've put over $4k into the organization, and spent many hours raising a ton of dollars for various charitable campaigns when VIA was not in someone else's hands. I am hoping my karma points are adequate to at least survive.
