Going to try for that one check as a matter of principle anyway.
I figured that was the case.
If it was me, and the ball was already rolling, I’d go through the motions, on principle, just to show them that they can’t just get away with a denial so easily.
But it sounds to me like you benefited from being let go. You’re doing the same thing in a place that you like and fit into better. They did you a favor.
That’s the beauty of this economy. If you have a working brain, or body, or both, you can get a job, because there are a lot of employers who need stuff to get done. There are a lot of people out there who really don’t want to work at all. I feel like these people need to be so easily embraced and integrated into our society and civil structure (disabled, retirees and independently wealthy excluded, of course).
Sorry for the tangent.
Fight them on principle. It’s the best reason to.
don’t need to be embraced*
You are correct. They offered a free apartment for three weeks to get me going, have fed me, the owner gave me $100 cash out of his pocket for doing well already, etc. -- Was never treated as well at previous company. You're correct.
I was about to ask about matter of principle.
If there is no financial gain in fighting I will not fight.
If the matter of principle is higher then just me, meaning it will help others against something evil (company in this case), I would fight.
If fighting just makes me feel better it is not worth the fight resources. I can use the fight resources on something more rewarding.
