Hello, I was working for spectrum and got fired yesterday. They fired the whole store basically. This happens everyday I guess but I’m speaking for me. I am a mother of 4 and my kids depend mostly on me. I have been working since I was 14 years old and take pride in being able to provide for my family. I need help, I filed for unemployment but thats only going to cover my rent if that. I’ve never been on welfare, and am not shaming anyone who has been but I don’t want to just scrape by. Of course I am in debt and I really don’t want to default on my payments because it’s still my dream to own a home for my children to run around in. I just need help and I know that these kinds of sites are when people have a disease or to help with funeral costs but I am alive and well and feel like it can really help us. Spectrum bought out TWC and since then that company has made it almost impossible for us to meet our goal and to have any extra money after you pay your bills. I’ve been literally living paycheck to paycheck. When TWC had the company my kids were in ballet, piano and violin. I’ve always spoke my mind and when the VP went to the store to tell us that the new commission would be capped and extremely lowered, I asked why would they do that to us knowing that we were already used to a certain amount of money. I asked if they could give us more time with the old commission since it was just from one month to the next that it was lowered so drastically. What he said was simply that we weren’t suppose to make so much, which I thought was offensive but what could I do. I kept my kids in those programs for a while thinking that if I did enough overtime and worked really hard I could maintain the same way of life but I was wrong and became more indebted. I had a baby last year on 8/03 and my last day working was 8/01 I worked till the end to not lose any money. The insurance they now have was so bad that now I owe thousands of dollars in medical bills. I really don’t know where to turn my dad passed and my mother doesn’t work. At the end of the day my kids just have me and I don’t want them to struggle or be deprived from things that should be available to them. If anyone could help with anything it would be greatly appreciated. This took a lot of courage because anyone that knows me knows I don’t ask anyone for nothing and work hard for everything i have. I know many will judge me but i have to try, i want to be with them and get to know them I want to help them develop. I’m left thinking of all the time they’ve lost without me because i was working and then I get fired with nothing to show for it. There are many things I could do for work and I’m applying but bills don’t stop while I find one. Keep in mind that I’m not selling nudes or being a prostitute or a bottle girl or stripper (again nothing wrong with that... to each his own)I am asking for help because I have always lent a helping hand when anyone is in need and now it’s me that needs it. Again if you can’t or don’t want to help me I understand we all have our struggles and need to save but please don’t write negative comments or try to make me feel ashamed for needing help.
