Young mum facing redundancy says coronavirus pandemic has made her lose independence

University worker Anne said she has had her independence snatched away after being told her post was redundant. She has also accused her bosses of using rolling temp contracts to protect the institution

A young mum has accused her bosses of hiring staff on temporary contracts so they are easier to let go after finding out she will lose her job because of the coronavirus pandemic.Wednesday 10 June 2020 13:56 {{^moreThanTen}} {{/moreThanTen}} Fictional and non-fictional accounts that document World War II history in an equally as poignant and heart wrenching way  ( iStock/The Independent ) This year, Anne Frank’s birthday – June 12 – marks the 78th anniversary of the day she received a diary for her 13th birthday..Zoom shuts down Tiananmen Square activist’s account Hernandez’ abuse of young girls spanned multiple years.

Anne also said she has had her independence snatched away after being told her post was redundant because due to the lockdown. The 25-year-old is one of thousands of young mums who have seen their jobs evaporate due to the lockdown and now she fears she could face a battle to get back into the workplace. In the face of love, loss, death, war and personal demons, Diary of a Young Girl provides a candid account that is at once uplifting, sad, beautiful, funny and life affirming. She said the news of her job loss came as "things were getting better" adding that she had been on a short-term contract at a London university, despite her manager asking for her to be made permanent staff. Anne, who chose not to give her real name, had been on the six-month rolling contract in administration but was told it would not be renewed in August. Writing powerful prose, such as: “How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world,” shows how Anne’s diary is a great affirmation to life's questions today, as she shows how ordinary people within such an ordeal can consistently stand by greater human values. She said: "I feel the senior managers were stopping it and protecting the institution by always doing temporary contracts in the case of something like this happening. According to Motherboard , this was the first reported time Facebook worked with authorities to track down a user.

"It means they wouldn't be so liable or responsible. Only Anne’s father, Otto, survived and he went on to publish his daughter’s diary in 1947. It is just better for that institution." Research by PwC revealed 78% of people that have already lost their jobs due to the pandemic are women, as they are often in the most insecure employment. Anne, who has a degree in geography and business management, now faces trying to survive with her two-year-old son on universal credit. "Generally speaking I don't find it difficult to get jobs, however these are unprecedented times and obviously there is going to be more competition and so that is something I fear because there are just lots of job cuts," she said.

Anne, who has found support with the Young Women's Trust, said lots of people have reported admin jobs disappearing during shutdown as companies try and shift paperwork online. "Since remote working was introduced because of lockdown, a lot of processes have become automated and electronic - why would companies go back to paper-based administration?," she said. Anne was receiving in-work credits, but had been hoping to come off them once her son was in nursery and she could work longer hours. Coronavirus outbreak "I was well on that path to full independence and things were getting better for me," she said. "All I had to do was slowly increase my days as my son grows up and I could come off universal credit, so I am just really hoping I will be able to find a job and go back on to that path," she said.

Anne plans to retrain as a social worker once she has enough free time to study. "I feel like I have the motivation and experience to help and give back to my community - it's quite exciting but I know I can't run before I can walk. I have to be patient," she said. "Because of the expense of childcare, I am waiting for my son to get to the last year of nursery or first year of primary school - it is a challenge for mums." Joe Levenson, director of communications and campaigns at Young Women's Trust, said: "Young women are amongst the hardest hit by the financial and domestic impact of coronavirus as they have been forced to take on even more caring responsibilities due to school closures and restrictions on support from family members.

"Many have lost their jobs and others face reduced hours or can only return to work if their employer is willing to be flexible. "We are really concerned that women's equality is already moving backwards and will continue to do so in the absence of a strong focus within Government and from employers on preventing this from happening - and are urging those in charge of recovery planning to ensure that no young woman is left behind." .
