I think it’s time for my husband to find a new job. He’s been working at the hospital for close to 10 years and he’s still in a part time position.
He’s worked in several jobs at the hospital. He first started when some cleaner jobs opened up and before long he went into portering and now he works in the Recovery Room. He loves what he does – it’s just that the position that he’s doing is only part time and there’s no full time opening available.
The other problem with his job is that our hospital has blown it’s budget over the last year so they’re making all the part time workers going on rotating temporary lay offs. In the last year my husband has been off work for a total of 6 weeks in temporary lay offs.
We’ve heard that they’re planning more lay offs for the summer so husband is starting to look for a new job outside the hospital. He really doesn’t want to leave his workplace because he really does enjoy his job, but we just can’t take the continued job insecurity and loss of income that the temporary layoffs cause.
