Jenn’s Words: “Living in poverty is like being punched in the face over and over and over on a daily basis. “

Standard

Come on people we can do better can’t we? Educated and can’t find a job. This is sickening. I don’t know if she will ever read this, but Jenn I’ve been there and done that. I know what it is like. If only I had a way of contacting you I’d try to get some info because sometimes it is not about what you know it is about who you know…. And I know lots of people. I’d try very hard to find a job for you, it might not be the best job but it is better than nothing.
Good luck dear. I hope it gets better soon. And if you do read this please contact me. I’m happy to help in any way I can.

Poor as Folk

Everything has to be rationed out over a week…
