The Food Bank tends to hire temp after temp by way of Temporary Staffing by Suzanne in order to avoid creating full-time positions with benefits. This is because they're fond of firing at the drop of a hat, and want to reduce overhead. If they're not interested in hiring for the long term, why not take on more Americorps volunteers? Otherwise, it's ridiculous that they skillfully avoid labor and discrimination laws by going through temps. For the record, I was a temp who was fired literally one hour after disclosing a chronic but manageable illness (IBS) that has caused me to require frequent bathroom breaks. It took a lot of courage to come forward, but I did not think that a reputable non-profit such as the Food Bank would be discriminatory. He wrote back "Get better soon" without even reading the email, as if it were a temporary issue, and an hour later, I was forced to leave.

I guess I'd be more comfortable with a salary of $100,000, or even as high as $150K. The extra money saved on her pension should be spent on the ones we donate too. I'll donate this time but it will be my last time unless I notice a chand
