We have a backdoor that is always unlocked when someone is working because we use it quite often. All of our staff things (coats, boots, shoes, bags) stay at the back. I was working in the middle of the day and 1 hour before the end of my shift (I am the opener so I leave early) I noticed my bag wasn't where I left it all day. I asked around if someone moved it but no one did. So we looked and looked… nothing. We went outside to see if someone would have stolen the bag, took my money and left the rest to be buried in the snow somewhere… nothing.
I am not rich. I work extremely hard to make ends meet. And when I buy something, I worked really hard for it. I don't spend much time home, so I carry a lot of my "life" in my bag. I counted for about $1,500 worth to replace everything. It included prescription sunglasses and cash money, my entire designer wallet with all my cards, my keys, toiletries… my super awesome tea mug that I cannot find anymore, my water bottle… I know they are all material belongings, but they are my “survival kit” from Monday to Friday.
I work outside and alone with animals quite often. my headphones are gone, my phone charger is gone and now I am blinded by the sun when I work outside.
They are supposed to provide a safe working space. I work in a clinic. There are no cameras, no security measures. I made a little bit of research, but I would like to know what I can argue on, or what I could demand of the company since, in my opinion, there is a big lack of safety measures, knowing already that we have people knocking on that door to ask if we can give them drugs.
I was also victim of a theft (just my keys) at work not even 6 weeks ago. It cost me about $200, lots of stress and lots of time. Now it is so much worse!
