I'll begin where I've began pretty much every thread I've done since I've been on here, It is my one goal in life to be a lawyer now i'm 8 years out of law school and have absolutely nothing to show for it. My last job as a government attorney I was forced out because I couldn't meet the impossible quota requirements. In my pathetic solo practice I had one case with a trade union that I worked like hell on and was ready to take to arbitration but then the selfish a**hole union president refused to let me arbitrate it because it would have revealed that his collective bargaining strategy was unsuccessful. I finally thought things were looking up when I got an interview with another union for an in house position but then it was postponed because of COVID and I just found out today that they've decided not to interview at all. I needed that job but of course no one cares about anyone but themselves and now I have to face the prospect of spending my life in a worthless, unfulfilling non-attorney career where I'll end up hating myself more and more each day.
