My boss is constantly asking me to work more hours

Even though I've told her I can't, she always asks then gets mad at me when I say no. I don't know what to do! She's pregnant and due anyday and I'm the only one who does my job so it's not like she can ask anyone else. I feel bad and guilty but at the same time I have to think about my family and myself. I want to quit but again, she's pregnant.

Ugh.

Maybe you can compromise? For instance, stay a little later a couple days a week, or come in a little earlier? Would that make you more productive? Would you be willing to sacrifice that time? Other than that, there's not much she can do. Here, in Alabama, a boss can up and fire you for anything. Which sucks. Bad. Hopefully it's not like that there!

Truthfully, I'd be happy if she fired me. I'm honestly not willing to compromise. Maybe that makes me a bit of a jerk, I don't know. I already work until 2am. Also the nature of the job doesn't always make that possible. After a 6 hour shift there's generally nothing left for me to do.

Maybe having kids will help her perspective change. At the very least, you'll have a break from her while she's on maternity leave (unless she's a crazy workaholic or something).
