so, i just told everyone in my company that i am expecting on friday.
this morning, my boss called a meeting and fired me.
i have no idea what to do at this point, i'm kind of lost. i made over 60% of my family's income, and i worked at a high-profile firm out of new york, as thier representitive in my city. i am a in a mild state of shock.
of course, my boss cited other reasons for firing me, but they pretty much seemed like made-up reasons, and the pink elephant in the room was that i was pregnant after working there for less than a year and the company really didn't feel like paying maternity leave, etc, in these hard ecomonic times.
i am a little lost now. there's a chance we could lose our house without my income. i'm not sure where i go from here. what do you do when you find out that you can't support your family anymore? especially when it's growing? i'm at a loss.
sorry to be such a downer. i didn't know who else to tell.
