I have recently applied at 2 different decent paying jobs I was phone interviewed and interviewed in person. Once a background check and drug test were completed they individually ran credit checks on me and since I am not making as much money as I used to I have accrued some child support backpay which comes out on my credit report. Therefore the job offers were taken off the table. So child support is stopping me from getting better paying jobs. I honestly didn't know that putting CS on your credit report was legal. I have bought cars, a home, and received cash loans from banks so the only thing that putting CS on my credit report is affecting is me paying my CS. The TX AG's office is a joke.

This year's been pretty rough for me when it comes to my careers I've had numerous jobs it's been super frustrating because of personal things in my life I've been bouncing around moving quite a bit I've always prided myself on my work ethic the fact that I work hard I learned fast and I've never had someone who's hired me regret the fact that they did I'm a single mom and it's very hard to try to juggle being a single mom working daycare and life in general but I always keep good head on my shoulders positive attitude and I always love working with people

Ok, so my job isn't great but it's not terrible. The only thing that is are the hours. I have two kids and work 6 days a week sometimes 9 10 hour days mostly on the weekends. I told the boss this when I started but she still keeps handing me these shifts like 11 to 8 three days in a row, and I don't know how to go about talking to her about it without seeming like I'm complaining or anything. I need to work but I also need to be home with my family when I can. Does anyone have any advice on how to go about explaining this to her?

My Step dad and I worked at Dunham Price LLC in Westlake La. They said they where downsizing. So they laid off my stepdad. The only other person they laid off was me! It's been about 2 months and still, just him and me. I tried to tell them I have nothing to do with him. They kept saying that they were just downsizing. I said to them, " this is discrimination!" They said if I wanted to get upset, well then they wouldn't pay me for the rest of the month either! I had to bite my tongue. I'm a single mother that was doing a great job for them! I think it's wrong! I needed that money. I'm having a hard time finding a job that even comes close to the money I was making. I was finally going to get my son and I out of a negitive living situation! They r just heartless, and my main point it was discrimination by association!!

I have applied for almost 4,000 jobs in the last year and a half. I got my masters degree in Psychology with hopes of getting a good paying job. I’m lucky to work at a gas station making minimum wage!!! It’s pathetic how companies are hiring only for looks. I can’t get a job to save my life! For those who don’t believe me just ask around. I’m not drop dead gorgeous but I’m not that bad. I have 2 kids that are starving because their mother can’t get a job. I give up. Guess we’ll just be homeless. It’s sickening!!!!!
