And am actually quite relieved about it. They basically didn’t want to allow me as much holiday as I am entitled to, yet that was just the iceberg’s tip. They made me a fishy proposal and I called the workers’ council to see whether that was all correct. It wasn’t. I told my potential employer so and he said that this wasn’t the way they would go about these things. They are a small firm, after all. I said that holidays were a thing that I thought one should go about thoroughly. We met again to talk this over, or that was the plan. Instead of talking things over, they told me they didn’t think it was a sign of good chemistry if such an issue arose in the first week and that we should not work together. I told them I didn’t think so either and that such an early disagreement rather meant that more conflicts would be lying ahead. Then they sacked me.
Yet comrade Anaj prefers to get sacked if being employed means she would be denied the right to a proper holiday.
And of course comrade Anaj would have wreaked havoc and confusion in that place. She would have told all the other part-time workers to stand up for their rights. They had no choice but sacking me, considering they couldn’t subdue me.
