My Tuesday

Sometimes days just don't go right and today was one of those days. The casino I was working for closed its doors on September 24 and that meant there were 100 of us out of work within a matter of 15 minutes. We as employees have been working through this and individually some have new jobs and others are still working on getting new employment. One of the items that we have been waiting for is the last paycheck. It was payday on October 10 and some of us still have not seen the final paycheck in our mailbox. I have been very patient in waiting but now it is getting to the point where I will need to do something. My options are to contact the L&I and see if they will be able to help me. My dealer license was to be renewed as of October 3 and since the casino was closed I asked the Washington Gaming Commission to return my money for the new license for the new year. Since there are no jobs in the area and I am not going to move I will no longer deal poker. That is now something in my past. I will continue to play poker since I enjoy the game. I found out today that since we were not notified as employees in a facility that had over 50 employees working that we are considered dislocated employees and have the benefit of unemployment and getting training for new positions. My problem is that I don't have enough hours until the casino posts the 3rd quarter hours and I am now waiting for that to happen. So, I have no unemployment coming in until he posts and no paycheck that should have been here before now. I am still waiting for the refund of the dealers license. As you can see it was a very bad day and I hope things will only get better as the days move forward. I really need something positive right now. Have a fun day..... Bankroll = $110
