CCIS-Child Care

I was working for Lowe’s making $13.04 an hour. I lost my job because Welfare didn’t put their paperwork through and I lost my child care provider. I didn’t lose my job because I wanted to not work. I lost my job because in two weeks they would’ve fired me anyway for not showing up...

He was asking the case worker for something to eat.  I don’t have child care, so I have to take him to my appointments.  If he was in day care I wouldn’t have to have lugged him early in the morning to an appointment to the welfare office to try to get food stamps and medical coverage.  I can’t help it if my baby’s hungry.  I was thinking ‘I’m not going to lie to you miss, he’s hungry.'
