Darleny Liriano,Chipotle on Park Avenue in Manhattan

I was getting 30 hours a week but that got reduced to 12 hours a week, making it difficult for me to pay rent. When I lived in a shelter, leaving work too late meant that I lose my place if I got to the Shelter too late. But if I called out from work because I did not want to lose my place in the shelter, then they cut more of my hours.

If I came to work sick, it was a problem and if I called out from work because I was sick it was a problem but they told me they would fire me if I came to work sick.
