   Hardship Letter Shift Change

Dear {Name},

I would like to request a shift change, as my current schedule is causing me extreme {academic/financial/emotional} hardship. My current hours are {shift/times}, {days}. I would like to request a transfer to {shift/times}, {days}.

I am a {single parent/full-time student/etc.} and my shift at this time is incompatible with {my class schedule/the time my children get home/etc.}. I understand that this is a business and that my job requires flexibility and dedication. However, I hope you can understand that there is no way around these circumstances. I simply have to {take care of my children/complete these classes to graduate}.

While I would prefer a transfer to {shift} as specified above, I would be more than happy to consider other options as well. I have attached a list detailing my full availability. Thank you for your consideration.
