Let it never be stated that one lady can’t make a serious difference, because just last month, I started a new job working at one of the many warehouses for this major online business. It’s only supposed to be temporary seasonal work, however my boss told me that she prefers my work ethic so much that she’s recommending me for a position as a permanent member once the holiday season is over. While this is surely enjoyable news, it’s not all kittens and sparkly rainbows! The warehouse work is pretty easy and the other women I work with are awesome, however this particular warehouse itself is just terrible. I thought a business in this standing would have strong heating and air conditioning to care for the quality of the inventory all of us maintain. This is simply not the case at all. And even though it snowed last week, all of us still don’t have any kind of heating and cooling at all, not even the most basic version. At this point I had enough and I rallied behind the fact that it wasn’t right for us to have to work without any kind of heating component running at all. So, after hours upon hours of arguing with my boss, and then arguing with my boss’s boss, all of us are finally getting approved to have heating and cooling equipment installed. Thought they’re saying they can’t hire anyone to do heating and air conditioning work till the springtime, my coworkers and I have been approved to bring our own space furnaces into work. While these devices don’t look like very much at first glance, they make a huge difference to us all. We’ve placed them around all of our work stations, and they both help us feel and also work better. I can get so much more done now that I’m not fighting off the cold every single second of the day.
