My future...is bleak.

Granted, it was slow today at the spa, but lately it's been like that far too often.
All totalled, my two-and-a-half hours of massage earned me, before taxes, $143.28. Plus a whopping $5.00 tip.

Two weeks from now, a day identical to today will get me $80.60. Before taxes. That's a 43.75% loss in income.

I'm fucked.

I'll try to ride it out, see if business picks up any, but I can only give it so much time before I have to move on.

Big girl panties, where are you?

I'm so sorry to hear that your place of employment is, essentially, screwing you.

If I were in your situation, I think I would probably prepare my resume and go meet potential employers on my days off to see if anyone offers something more reasonable.

MG, believe me, I'm considering it. But I have to think about my benefits (especially health insurance). I'll first look into a transfer within the company, and I'm also looking into getting a part-time job at another spa on my days off. Because you never know what might happen, once you get a foot in the door!

I like your idea of working for another spa on your days off. Not like I have any now but I wouldn't like to give up any current health insurance coverage either. You can always back off again if the current situation picks up again.
