Three Children, No Job, No Unemployment, No Child Support

Share Your Story: Share Your Unemployment Story

By nadia halloway

The job I lost

I lost my job around three years ago, so I am feeling bad just like the rest of the unemployed. I've been without a check for a month now. I have three children, no child support, and am basically screwed.

My son is seventeen he quit his last year in high school so he could get a job at a coffee shop that pays $7.75 hr., so we can pay the rent.

I am in the medical field, I work as a phlebotomist.

I tried every day to find some type of employment. I don't even care what the job is anymore, I just need to work to survive.

What it's like being unemployed

It is the worst feeling when you can't support your children. I'm worring so much that it's affecting my health.

I've been woking off and on since I was 14 years old I've always tried to set a good example for my kids.

How can the goverment just turn its back on all these people that are suffering and need help. If we can send billions to help other people in other countries then why cant't we help the people here in America. We are supporting a war that has no meaning, what we need to do is bring these poor soilders back home, and focus our attention here at home where the people need it most.


  • My Advice is pray for all these people who are in need.
  • Help your neighboor if you are in a better situation then he is. What comes around in this world goes around.
