So my team knows I just came off medical leave and I even got sick this weekend from pulling 6 days in a row. My manager let me know that if I need to I can leave earlier. Will my team resent me?
I have been skinny (i.e. “underweight” according to BMI) all my life. I have no idea how the hell you’re supposed to gain weight. I thought as I started nearing 30 I would become more comfortable in my own body, but I seem to be getting even more self conscious (like apologizing to my boyfriend when cuddling for being so pokey). I’m sick of being told to eat more/put meat on my bones/men like a little cushion.

Recruiter reached out for a 6 month W2 contract-to-hire role. He said "Rate would be $80/hr W2 which includes paid holidays, PTO, and medical." Does that mean I would get $80/hr + benefits? Or does it mean the $80/hr rate includes the value of those benefits, and therefore the base compensation for this role is something like $65-70/hr? My first time coming cross this phrasing, would appreciate any input. He also said they could do 1099/Corp2Corp "if I'm set up for it." Any benefits over W2?

*sigh* Will I ever find a company that cares about HR professional development as much as the employees’ we help? Getting sick of hearing about how development is so important to the company (often during orientation) but when I ask to attend a conference or get a certification, it’s crickets! I have more education/experience than most of the people we ‘serve.’

I'm seeing a lot of social media posts from medical professionals disparaging people for not wearing masks. Maybe we should direct some of our outrage at the government and public health systems that have utterly failed its citizens
