Quoting ~*~Modern*Day*Delilah~*~:" I think people should too, but the thing is, they punish you if you CAN'T do it . If you are poor and ... [snip!] ... a rut when you can't even get a leg up on it in order to get out...No one knows how hard it is to do unless they've lived it. "
Agreed. We have a good public transportation system here but some places its not good at all. Near my house the bus doesnt run on weekends and you can only get the bus until 7. The busses dont run often. Then, in March the bus line that does go near me will be stopped. It can get pricey to ride the bus/light rail across town. If you dont catch your last bus or it comes early, you are screwed and are taking a cab home. And waiting for a bus in Colorado blizzards SUCKS.
My Mom is on disability and gets food stamps, she cant work and I cant get a job even with my degree. I work under 20 hours a week because if Iwork more I lose my insurance, and then even working 40 hours a week wouldnt cover my medical needs.
Its sick that in this country people go hungry or without insurance.
