An out-of-work mother caused a firestorm on Reddit when she revealed that she lost her job after her niece reported her company for bad working conditions. The girl then wanted a pat on the back, and that’s when the family strife began. Here is the full story.
She Had to Change Jobs
OP is a 35-year-old mother of 3 who lost her long-time job during the pandemic due to cost-cutting measures. Luckily, she was able to find work in a meat processing company not long afterward.
It Was Only Temporary
The new job was a grind, and the working conditions were rough, but OP was happy to have the income. Still, she was going to move on as soon as she found something better.
She Wanted Some Fun Money
In the meantime, OP’s 19-year-old niece was looking for a part-time gig. She was in college and wanted some spending money, even though her wealthy parents paid for her school and expenses.
She Tried to Help Out
Since the meat company was still hiring, OP recommended her niece for an opening, and the girl was hired. That’s when all hell broke loose.
She Was Looking For Trouble
It didn’t take OP’s niece to start complaining about the disgusting work environment, and then she started digging into her coworker’s wages and hours.
She Was Going to Report Them
The niece found out that the company didn’t pay standard overtime multipliers and that they were working people excessive hours. She told OP that she was going to report their employer to authorities.
They Needed Their Jobs
OP asked her niece to just keep quiet because she needed her job to feed her family. It was the same way for most of their coworkers, too, who couldn’t afford to be unemployed.
She Fought for the Cause
But OP’s niece was hellbent on making a difference, and she started posting pictures of the workplace on social media. She also posted videos and long text posts about fighting for workers’ rights.
They Blamed Her
The accusations caused quite a stir at work, though OP was never sure if her niece actually went to authorities or not. What she did notice was that her bosses started to ignore her.
She assumed because they blamed her for recommending the troublemaker.
She Got the AX
Not long after the niece started her war against the meat plant, the company started laying people off. Among those let go were OP and several of her direct coworkers.
She Went Her Own Way
After getting fired, OP started looking for a new job right away. She didn’t contact her niece and tried to avoid the young woman completely.
She Wanted Recognition
But OP’s niece texted and called her several times, saying that what she had done was right. She wanted OP to acknowledge that she was doing a service by trying to get the company to change.
He Thought She Deserved an Award
The girl’s dad, who is OP’s brother, got in on the act, too. He texted OP to tell her that she should encourage his daughter to keep fighting for what is right.
She Wants to Keep the Peace
OP doesn’t want to argue with a young woman who has no real-life experience, and she doesn’t want to argue with her rich brother, either.
She Needs to Focus On Her Work
For OP, the right thing to do now is for her to spend her time and energy on finding another job. But she’s concerned about keeping peace in the family, too.
