sis could lose her job in 3 months!!

March 9th, 2009 at 02:26 am

her boss told her yesterday that, given the low sales in Central America, they might be closing down offices starting in June...
Right now, most of their large customers are not buying anything...some have said they are awaiting the results of the election (to be held March 15) to decide what to do...others simply have less orders from the US, so they are not producing as much, so they are not buying as much...
It's tough, because sis is already 44, and, here in ES, a woman might as well consider herself unemployable at 35!
Not only that, she's worked sales, but, in a field that is so specialized...
Well, there's not much to do but wait and see, I guess...
For the time being, she'll try to lower her debt as much as she can (she's got at least $12K- $15K...and I don't know how much of that is cc!!)
Don't know if she's already told her least they're both working now, so it'll be easier than it would have been, say, this same time last year!

    Oh I am so sorry, I am praying that she will be able to hold on to her job. I will definitely be praying for her

    That is so sad to read. I hope she is able to create a good gameplan between now and June. And maybe find a better job because of it. Why do women not work past the age of 30 in El Salvidor?

    oh, it is not that they don't work, it's that it is difficult to find a new job (almost impossible). It is NOT against the law to make age a part of the job qualifications... most ads state: "between 20 and 30 years of age"...or "no older than 30"....On ocasion, you might be able to find one that extends that until 35 (or, in cases where they specifically want men, ti 40)...
    The only places that do NOT have an age requirement are international NGOs, Embassies, and, now, call centers...
