Lord forgive me for ever saying there's nothing to eat in the house when there was a refrigerator full of stuff. I pray this young lady is in a better situation now.

The real sad part is even if she gets a slightly better job, she will lose all those benefits and be in the same hole again.

I wish more people understood that in life you are only a paycheck away from becoming homeless.

America we can't be proud of the way we treat our citizen's. $7.50 an hour 16 hours a week how the hell does she survive and our priority is giving the super rich a huge tax break.

Fast-food workers have to deal with the rudest people ever, and take it!
Bless you, sweetie.
I hope things get better. 😟

That's sad, 480$ a month???? That's less than half the U.S average rent!!!

I’m only a year younger than her, and I can’t imagine being in that kind of situation.

God bless her, she’s trying her best. A breakthrough will happen for her.

Coming from experience, it’s sad to say but sometimes u have to skip meals to survive on biweekly 7.50 wage. This video kills me how similar my life is to this, minus having a child.

And the general public thinks that she is being over paid.
