I have two aunts that make a total of about 15k a year working there asses off in retail as single mothers. Bother fathers passed away.
They can not afford a laptop (family made sure they got em). A requirement of Cores is keyboarding for homework.
They are expected to pay for everything in this program even if they cant afford it.
This nation thinks everyone can afford a monthly payment, forced payment for phones, insurance, healthcare. and If you can't pay the $300 a month in "affordable" programs, you are fined beyond recovery.
Yes we have to move forward, but this shit has to stop, we need to provide help if we are going to require instead of fining the poor.
