Yet another post about public assistance, but can you answer this?
I am a full time working mom of three. i currently am receiving food stamps. The other day i was thinking about how i just want to better our lives for my family. I want to get my degree so i can get a better job so financially i will be able to stop getting public assistance.
So i decided lets do it lets continue working, go to school part time online so i can still manage my home life as well. well i got shot down pretty fast. If i were to go back to school i would loose my food stamps and well honestly we would need them until i got that degree to get a better job. the only way i could get assistance is if i only worked part time or did work study(which doesn't pay minimum wage) there is no way i can do that due to my bills.
i just don't get it, you would think they would be willing to help you better your life so they don't have to help support you anymore.. can anyone answer me why i cant better my life???
