Cutting hours at work

At the current job most employees are experiencing fewer working hours. I've even been scheduled less than the minimum 24 hour work week. While I could complain to the union about this, it's much easier just to ask the bosses at work where I can add some hours to hit the mandatory 24.

While this is a typical trend with new store managers, it seems to be occurring more than usual. This means that my coworkers and myself are back on the job hunt.

The good news is it seems there are many job openings in the area recently. The bad news is most of these jobs do not have unions, so it is likely that I would not get certain luxuries I am used to, including a lunch break at a proper time. But the hunt is on!
