Minorities in Marketing

As an Asian who is actually sick, I’m wary of calling out sick because I fear insensitive Coronavirus jokes and jabs at work. Am I the only one?

Yo, take care of yourself. If they’re stupid enough to make dumbass jokes, that’s on them. Don’t put your health at risk because people *may* become idiotic and flap their gums like fools. Feel better soon.

I was sick last week and beat them to the punch, by joking about eating bat soup lolll. I’m comfortable enough with my team but I guess it’s diff if jabs come from unwanted opinions/figures.

I get what you’re saying. With some people I’d LOL like I just did. But I’ve also had a crazy dude yelling in my face about being a “Chink woman’ (he was mentally ill but hearing that stuff said out loud is startling.)

Has anyone successfully gotten UI benefits? Would love to chat if so. Filed mid March, mine is still in pending status, got one random payment two weeks, and nothing since. History shows no payments have been made. Losing my mind a bit 🤪

I just got news that the person who sexually harassed me at my previous job was laid off recently. He was more senior than me and took advantage of me when I didn’t know many people there. Happy day.
