I work for between 4 and 5 1/2 hours, no break. I'm a cashier, I just work the register and put things away/stock/recover, clean, etc. My feet start hurting within a few minutes and are unbearable by 3 hours in. I want to cry. I have decent shoes, I had some generic insoles but they seemed to make it worse. When I get home I can barely walk, when I get up in the morning after work (sometimes a day after work as well) I can barely walk. The pain is an ache, but also kind of burning, soreness, and I know everyone just thinks "well it's your first job you'll get used to it" but I've been working for about a month now and it seems to have gotten worse, not better. I absolutely dread work but I can't quit (I need money desperately), what should I do? I have, just, so little money and I am tired of this pain.
