I am a recently single mother of a 21 month old child. I had a job for 10 years same company (contractor-no benefits). I worked up until 1 hour before my baby was even born. Company decided they would shut down. Gave us 1 weeks notice. With a 3 month old child and a husband from another country i tried to move and start again.
Since i don’t have very good education it is hard to land a good job. I am only good at warehouse type positions and inventory control.
I managed to find work here after a few months while my husband stayed home and looked after our baby. He couldn’t handle it and left. He had good reason i guess. His mother was also sick and he is a big family man.
I managed to get help from my oldest son for a short period of time. Trying to hold onto my current job. One month after my husband leaves i loose my job again. He can no longer help me to secure another job as he has his own new baby to care for now.
I currently get $900 for living. I am 2 car payments behind. Living on overdraft. I have a daycare set up to go looking for more work but i am not able to pay for it all. Until i get work i am going to be short $250 a month. Basic living is pretty expensive alone never mind any extras.
I have only my mother for family and she is old and restricted to her retirement savings. Not able to help me.
I need a little help to get me back on my feet so i can find another job quickly.
I consider myself very independent and far from lazy. I have always managed to care for my family. This time is a little different. I know i can do it again. Just hit a rough time.
If you can even help a little anything would be truly appreciated.
