Message from Greg in Montreal Storm #general
But I'm fucking furious
My life has literally been affected
hey, athens got fired for being right wing as well a few weeks ago
you're not the only one
i never held a corporate job, so my employer wouldn't have given a damn about me being a nazi anyway
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
That hold a monopoly
In this business
And clearly lobby all big companies to use them
... so aren't you getting unemployment insurance?
Yeah but it's capped at 58% of your income up to a maximum of $510 per week
Or 1020 biweekly is how they pay
that's not bad
That's not survivable for my current billa
livin' the pimp lifestyle, are we
I've been doing odd jobs cash so I can collect the EI and extra money without cancelling my EI
rent one of your rooms to a subletter
another fucking white male
I have an add out and even airbnb add because I live next to the airport
I might have to get rid of this place and move into something more down to earth if something doesn't give soon
that would be wise. maybe even move in with others. getting a rent below 400$ 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
Nah. It's gonna be my own business if anything
yeah. lot of work, but more interesting
Not inclined to be a tradesman, I'm a business guy. I've been running other people's businesses and sales long enough.
if you have sales skillls, that's the most important thing i guess
That's what I do lol
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.
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
I really didn't think it was that deep, companies keeping databases basically were they label your political positions...
No the companies themselves. Third party "background check" companies.
But they all use the same few of them
And they're not even political questions. They are questions about your confidence, intelligence etc.
ya but its interesting how they than label you as an authoritatian
like in a political way?
