A bit bout me: I grew up in poverty and need a bit of help now but I am pulling my own weight. I don't want to be a 2nd or raise a 3rd generation in poverty so....I hate how they treat you like you are an idiot. Yes they can provide some useful tools to get a job (help with clothing, computer and other office equiptment use, bus tickets) but what I am talkng about is how they have these "training" classes and all they are basically remedial classes. How is that empowering someone? What I thought was going to be a good thing at Goodwill wasn't really...you had to come to these classes where they taught you how to come to work on time, how to fill out an application, and junk like that. I am like wow I am not stupid I know how to fill out a form, I have worked plenty of years so I know what is expected of me at a job, how to ask if I don't know what is expected at a job, and I sure as hell know how to get there on time. There is no way to skip ahead or anything like that for classes that are not useful for you. I thought the program actually gave you a job placements or internships. They say they help but I feel it is really pushing you down so far you don't even know how to look up. I understand for people who have had a life in poverty, drugs, jail/prision, foster care would need these common sense things but for a person that is smart enough and qualified enough to work at Goodwill or any other place it is insulting when they talk to me like I don't know what is going on.
