I am 19 years old and I can’t find a job. If I had a penny for every time I heard that….
I was a A student and managed to get into 5 colleges, only to receive no financial help whatsoever even though my dad is a single parent who makes (if were lucky) $20,000 a year after taxes. My dream as to be a horse trainer so I could work with/study the wild horses, so much for that. I have been taking care of my 3 sisters since I was 9 years old when my parents divorced. My mother owes thousands of dollars in child support but ran of to Canada so she doesn’t have to pay. I have 4 infected/impacted wisdom teeth that have needed to be removed since January 2011. I need between $8000 and $10,000 to have it done and the cost of renting a hospital room/equipment goes up every day. I am so tired of being in pain all the time, I truly would sell my soul for a job right now. All my life money has always been scarce but this is just unbelievable and beyond unfair to all the people who are in similar situations! I can’t see a way out and I’m so frustrated and angry with what’s going on in this country.
I am the 99%
