Is it tone deaf to push for a raise / promotion at mid-year when the firm has been struggling financially, but avoiding layoffs / pay cuts?

No it’s not tone deaf, just consider that with everything going on chances may be slimmer.

Sorry I can’t give you that promotion, but I can give you an extra paycheck for 2 whole weeks.

That feeling when you get a promotion, but others in your cohort get a double promotion. Relatively, you have been demoted. #happybutnothappy

If you are laid off while I-485 is pending, do you lose your status or as long as I-485 is pending (and before approval, you find a job), you are fine?

Have cried multiple times this weekend about the week ahead and literally curled into a ball on the floor today and cried about tomorrow being Monday. Have been working 17-18 hour days on my current project and I can barely get through the days. I feel like death most days just due to sleep deprivation. Really want to start practicing living in the present and not thinking about future tasks to do/hours but it's hard. Any other advice to get through the days?
