That sucks! If that's the case then they shouldn't have even told you that they could work with your schedule in the first place, let alone hire you if they planned on firing you anyways. They could have saved you a lot of time, time that could have been used to find another job. Hopefully you'll be able to find work elsewhere soon, best of luck OP!

I've never heard of that being a thing. Or a law.

absolutely not, which is why they want your schedule before classes start or have a understanding. they can fire you whenever they please regardless.

Well there isn't much they can do about this job since they aren't willing to work with the OPs schedule. I'd suggest attempting to get an on campus job or find a job that's more flexible like janitorial.

You have a point there. Obviously op can't change their current semester, but they can schedule the rest of their semesters in a way that they can still go to school and work. It's not the ideal situation, but neither is not being able to afford to go to college.

You guys… really picked apart my kill-yourself-then-somehow-do-something-else plan… I'd be very proud. I'm going to be honest, I thought it was 100% solid.

Why would they borrow a student?

I don't know in which country you live and how things work where you are, so this might not be an option, but isn't there a possibility to do a job on campus? When I went to college quite a lot of students got jobs as assistants to professors, janitors for campus buildings, campus library or restaurant workers,... Obviously working around the students college schedule was part of this kind of job. Another possibility we had if we had a legitimate reason why we couldn't come to some classes (a job being considered a legitimate reason, of course) was following an alternative "self-study" program where we could take some courses online stuff like that. If those options are available to you, it might be a good idea to give them a try.
