A young woman who complained about having to work a nine-to-five job has revealed that she is now broke after being laid off.
Brielle Asero from New Jersey has shared how she lost her first job that took her five months to secure.
In her viral video with more than 500,000 views, she said: “I got laid off from my first post-grad job – the one that took me five months to find, and for which I moved to New York City.”
Brielle said that she’s broke and doesn’t have an emergency fund as ‘everything goes toward living expenses, commute, and everything else.’
This comes after she burst into tears only two months ago because she struggled to find time for a life outside of her 9-to-5 job.
The 21-year-old revealed that she landed her job after searching for five months. Her boss even called her ‘one of the smartest people he has ever had working under him.’
“It’s not my fault before we start,” she said in her viral video. “They didn’t have the workload or the bandwidth that they needed to train me and to give me work to do.”
The University of South Carolina alum told her followers that she needs a job immediately.
“The job that I was working nine-to-five from, I wasn’t making enough to live. I don’t have savings because of that job,” she said in tears.
“We are working so much. And I still don’t have an emergency fund. I don’t because I wasn’t making enough to save any of it.”
She then broke down in tears and said: “To go through the whole entire hiring process again is going to actually kill me.”
Viewers were quick to share their thoughts, with many sharing their own experiences of being laid off.
One person commented: “I got laid off twice 2x this year, it’s horrible! I feel u. I’ve been doing side hustles/unemployment rn. Get on unemployment ASAP!”
Another wrote: “Don’t panic I’ve gotten laid off 3 times and last year and 2 years ago was right before Xmas and 2 of them were start ups my advice as a 27 year old.”
