RachaelThe Frustration of this Economy

My great-grandma used to tell me about the great depression and how her boss lived in a house that was only slightly larger than hers and he had 4 cars in his garage. Now the gap seems to be a mansion in the hills and an average of 8 cars. Where did morals go? I was once told by this man that people who are poor have chosen to be that way and if they don’t want to be poor they can do something about it. Well for five years now I have been working on starting my own goat farm and eventually I would like to open my own fiber mill. After 5 years I have finally got my business up on the internet. Over the past 5 years I have had jobs, had kids, and finally back in October got laid off from American General, AIG. The plan was to work until I could save up the money. That only works if I can make more money than life forces me to spend. Which means I need to make more than $10.00 an hour. The cost of having a car, putting gas in it, paying for insurance, paying for repairs, paying for food, paying for new clothes to even get a job, paying for rent, telephone, and electric. Gathering debt in an attempt to get myself an education. Diapers and wipes for my son who is almost potty trained(YEAH!). Add all this stuff up and no matter how much I want to and work to get out of poverty it starts to look like quite an endeavor. I will be totally honest here. In the course of my struggles and trying to fulfill my dreams and break the chain of poverty that spans generations of my family, I have wanted to kill myself. I have wanted to throw in the towel and give up. The things that keep me fighting is the knowledge that greedy and evil people only win for so long and I could never be so self as to take my sons’ mother away.
So the point of this goal is to start my own business and give the people in my community jobs that pay a decent wage. I don’t need 10 cars for the blood of my workers. I just want to make sure my roof doesn’t cave-in. 5 years ago
