This kind of hurt to read... I was on WIC for one month after my son was born, until I could get my foot in the door of my new career.
I was so embarassed, I didn't even want to sign up but I realized I had to, no one else would hire me after I had lost my job, I tried, but was very
visibly pregnant by that point. I cried because I didn't want any of my friends to find out.
I was always the money maker, and my boyfriend usually just did all the house work. Then I was so sick during my pregnancy that I was let go from my
job, for missing too many days. (I think that was somehow not right, but I didn't pursue it)
I got my starter career job in february exactly one month after my son was born. If it wasn't for WIC we would have been absolutely screwed.
I guess I'm saying not every mother on WIC is an irresponsible hood rat.
