Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:26:20  

post it on the bbs forum, at least

Greg 2016-10-25 18:26:27  

But I don't wanna seem like a whiner

Greg 2016-10-25 18:26:36  

But I'm fucking furious

Greg 2016-10-25 18:26:46  

My life has literally been affected

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:26:59  

hey, athens got fired for being right wing as well a few weeks ago

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:27:09  

you're not the only one

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:27:30  

i never held a corporate job, so my employer wouldn't have given a damn about me being a nazi anyway

Greg 2016-10-25 18:28:35  

I didn't get fired for that as far as I know, it was a "layoff due to lack of work" but it's getting a new corporate Job that's a problem, as I've been labeled as an authoritarian by all the background check / personality profiling agencies

Greg 2016-10-25 18:28:39  

That hold a monopoly

Greg 2016-10-25 18:28:46  

In this business

Greg 2016-10-25 18:28:54  

And clearly lobby all big companies to use them

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:28:56  

... so aren't you getting unemployment insurance?

Greg 2016-10-25 18:29:28  

Yeah but it's capped at 58% of your income up to a maximum of $510 per week

Greg 2016-10-25 18:29:43  

Or 1020 biweekly is how they pay

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:29:43  

that's not bad

Greg 2016-10-25 18:29:57  

That's not survivable for my current billa

Greg 2016-10-25 18:30:08  

Bills*

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:30:25  

shieet, nigga

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:30:34  

livin' the pimp lifestyle, are we

Greg 2016-10-25 18:30:41  

I've been doing odd jobs cash so I can collect the EI and extra money without cancelling my EI

Greg 2016-10-25 18:30:46  

Lol

Greg 2016-10-25 18:30:50  

Pimp lifestyle

Greg 2016-10-25 18:30:52  

I wish

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:31:04  

rent one of your rooms to a subletter

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:31:26  

another fucking white male

Greg 2016-10-25 18:31:33  

I have an add out and even airbnb add because I live next to the airport

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:31:43  

ok

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:31:47  

good initiative

Greg 2016-10-25 18:32:34  

I might have to get rid of this place and move into something more down to earth if something doesn't give soon

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:35:15  

that would be wise. maybe even move in with others. getting a rent below 400$ would really let down the pressure. you'd have a lot of time on your hands. you could even study a trade if you were so inclined

Greg 2016-10-25 18:35:42  

Nah. It's gonna be my own business if anything

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:36:00  

yeah. lot of work, but more interesting

Greg 2016-10-25 18:36:26  

Not inclined to be a tradesman, I'm a business guy. I've been running other people's businesses and sales long enough.

Zeiger 2016-10-25 18:36:51  

if you have sales skillls, that's the most important thing i guess

Greg 2016-10-25 18:37:04  

That's what I do lol

Albo-HAMMERBRO 2016-10-25 21:52:28  

Wow greg thats seriously fucked up, do you have any idea how this company that does "personality profiling found out about you. Like how did they even gather this evidence that they used to label you an authoritarian, very bizarre fucked up stuff. Ya i've been looking into trades for awhile, even though im in school right now for something completely unrelated, trades will always be in demand and you're basically self employed so it would be very hard to get fired for your political views.

Greg 2016-10-25 22:03:15  

I dunno exactly how but it comes up when you do all those questions with the questions like " strongly or strongly disagree " with a statement plus other types of questions

Albo-HAMMERBRO 2016-10-26 00:13:06  

I really didn't think it was that deep, companies keeping databases basically were they label your political positions...

Greg 2016-10-26 00:13:37  

No the companies themselves. Third party "background check" companies.

Greg 2016-10-26 00:13:51  

But they all use the same few of them

Greg 2016-10-26 00:14:24  

And they're not even political questions. They are questions about your confidence, intelligence etc.
