Idk. Speaking from someone that grew up poor and in the hood,probably worse off than her, i dont have much sympathy for her.
Her childcare is being taken care of, so why is she only working 20 hrs a week?
Get a second job at another fast food joint, gas station, something. Dont tell me thats impossible. Spots like this are ALWAYS hiring. I know because I've worked plenty minimum wage jobs. I have friends that jump from spot to spot all the time. Get a side hustle. SOMETHING. She works 20 hrs a week, and her child has daycare, WHAT IS SHE DOING WITH THE REST OF THAT TIME?
There's 168 hours in a week. She is working 20 of them....
100$ a month cell phone bill FOR WHAT? You can go to Walmart right now and cop a Straight-Talk joint for $45 a month. Yall saying that extra 50 wont help much, but its better than nothing. $50 might be nothing to us but thats a fortune to someone thats broke. If she's complaining about not getting enough hours, Thats 7 more hours worth for her right there.
People complain about her not being able to afford school, she better get a student loan lol. **** the debt. Its better to be making 30k+ with debt than making 12k without it. In her situation, theres so many grants + loans out there. She'd definitely be in school for free at a community college. She could go to a cc/tech school and get training/pick up a trade. Those extra 20hrs she is sitting on her *** is plenty time to study and take classes.
My point is, she isn't doing all she could do. Her options aren't exhausted. I know people in her EXACT situation. I'm not going to shun her for having a child young, or being a single mother, because it happens *shrug*. But I know single mothers right now from crazy environments that work 2+ jobs/going to school and are making it work so that their child wont have that same issue. Instead of grinding her way out of her situation, she is trying to beg her way out.
I do agree that she would do better with some guidance, but still. She is not grinding at all. The most she talked about work was complaining about not getting enough hours. She needs to be babysitting, cutting grass, looking for another job, cleaning houses, whatever she needs to do to eat.
I understand the point of the video, but I don't think she is the right example to drive the point. Im not expecting her to be living luxury, but she isn't doing all she can with her situation.
Life ain't fair. Its not going to be any time soon either. Everybody isn't going to be dealt the same hand. The more time you spend complaining about it, the less time you are putting toward trying to make it a little better for yourself. Make the best of what situation you have, THEN I will be willing to show sympathy. If people are waiting for an minimum wage increase to save them, its gonna be a long wait...
