Are you unhappy in Chicago because of the weather or the liberals?

Ha! Both! People at work love to talk politics, but when they ask for my opinion they get mad or offended. I don’t get why they ask, everyone knows I don’t agree with their views. But, it’s not just work, it’s everywhere... I walk to work and at one point there were union protests going on for 4 straight weeks. One of the people came off the picket lines to ask me a question... bad idea. My one year in Chicago is coming up at the end of March. I told my self I’d stay at least one year and no more than two. This city (and state) is on another level.

Agree Chicago weather is brutal. But unions fighting for a fair wage, worker protections - what is objectionable about that? You seem way to young be so disaffected by folks pushing for collective bargaining.

I feel burnt out and want to leave my job (have felt this for months now) but right now probably isn’t a good time to do that. Since my agency had layoffs, they are expecting me to take on a lot of the work left behind. Any advice or suggestions on keeping my sanity? I feel suffocated staying in my current role and want to cry at the thought of doing more work for the agency. I feel like I have no choice unless I’m willing to be unemployed :(
