Today, I was notified that my work is cutting my pay almost in half. I just renewed my long-term lease on an expensive apartment because I was able to afford it before this morning. Now I have no idea how I’m going to pay for it. FML

Check your contract or speak to your agency/ landlord to see if you have a break clause. You may be able to get out of the lease without penalty if you give them sufficient notice.

It could be a pay cut or severance/lay off.

Some situations are pretty much “put up with your job’s BS or try to survive on your savings.” I live in a Right To Work state, meaning my employers could fire me and replace me with no warning or justification, or severance.

Most states in the US right to work. They can change the pay with no notice and you can be fired for no reason. They don’t have to sign off on a pay cut

I can't see where you are located but have you checked to see if cutting your pay is legal? If not, then give sufficient notice and you should be able to break the contract
