If anyone knows of any help in davenport IA please let me know. I have never applied for anything before and don't really know how to go about this. I am currently off of work utilizing our FMLA to protect me from being fired. My SO has gotten laid off. Things are just so bad for everyone right now.I have a 6yr old son and a 2yr old daughter whom I have absolutly no idea how I will be pulling off Christmas this year. Let alone I have been trying to round up Winter clothes for them. I'm so embarrassed to ask and I feel like the most horrible mom ever. This is the first time I've had to reach out. J mean, things have been tight before..but nothing like this.

I would contact an official if that is of correct nature. Hire a lawyer for discrimination. There is free legal representation through the local court systems for low income people. Contact the local news stations. There are laws in place to protect anyone from this type of discrimination. If you were paid on the table the legit way, then there is submit table evidence. Personally you owe it to your coworkers, your children, your self, and to every activist that has fought so hard to break down these barriers. Best of luck.

Hi, Thank you so much for your prayers. The power of God is great! Things are looking promising for a new position. Its a civil job, but its a process. I go for the civil service exam on the 22nd of this month. Hope I do well on it. It will be at least another month, however in the mean time I'm trying to find a part time postion late evenings into the early am before my boys awaken and need to be at my other job. Trying to find the positives in this situation you know. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise to push me to do better things. Thank you and have a blessed day.

Hello. I have just received custody of my 2 nephews 12 and 7 years old. I was already struggling with my one son. I have been fighting cancer and have been cancer free for almost one year. My nephews came with nothing but the clothes on their back. I got them enrolled in school and in consouling. I have never had to ask for anything. But I would love to give them a little Christmas.If anyone knows of something or can help please let me know. Thank you

I was a full time employee because I was black they hired a a white kid to do my job on the layoff and when we came back to work I stepped up and asked why they hey gave the kids my job then found out that the for black people that work at that bakery we're getting paid $10 an hour and the whole time everyone else is getting paid 1050 and that's the starting pay I stood up for myself and they fired me. I have been looking for a hob everyday. This is so hard for me I am a good worker and take care of all my kids.
