Re: “Off-The-Charts Poor

i am one of those who have a 2 yr degree plus - computer classes, etc. all in hopes of making a decent income. it hasnt happened over my lifetime 'cause other things get in the way. i live/survive being on various gvt. programs - section 8 housing, food stamps, ahccs, etc. i am 58 yrs old and has lived in tucson for almost 10 yrs. being a participant in these programs are degrading, etc. for me with my educational background. also i depend on public transportation to get around town. i have a az drivers license but i cant afford the car that goes with it. i have a hard time getting hired, etc. not biligual either which alot employers want and need. had the same problem in florida. i know and can speak some spanish but not enough to have a conversation with someone and understand them. i have done so many job training programs with a small amt of money, but then no transition to a full time job. only ft job being a single widowed mom for about 12 yrs. my daughter had behavior problems from the begining, eventually i had to sign my rights away.
