Okay so the lady I worked for (nanny/tutored a 9 yr old girl) was really wishy washy. She changed up the date I was supposed to start 3 times, she made me lower my price like 3 times, and then cut me from being full time to part time so then I was barely making half of what I was supposed to. Then last Friday she was supposed to pay me, and she did but I had to like pull it out of her even though we’d already agreed she was gonna pay me. Bleh. So I decided that we eventually would need to part ways and started looking for a new job, I was gonna give her two weeks notice. Then she called two days in a row and told me not to come in those days. On the third day, and after only a week of me working, she called and told me that her husband doesn’t want her to pay me anymore while she’s working from home. While I understand that, they employed me and led me to believe that I would have a long term position with them. ALSO, I secured a second car that I now have to pay insurance for and can’t afford only because I was getting this job - and the woman knew that!
I regret not having a contract in place with them, lesson learned for next time.
The thing is, I have an 8 month old daughter who I was able to bring to work with me. It is apparently VERY har to find a job where you can bring your own child with you. Does anyone have any advice on this? I’m super desperate at this point. There’s no way for me to put her in childcare, id be working just to pay for a sitter.
