I have been there and done that. I lived in my car for over a year once. That was when I realized that since I was a white male I did not qualify for any assistance programs. I sure did not get 2-3 years of unemployment even though the plant I worked for sent all the jobs to China. I realized I needed to "re-purpose" myself". I had a degree in history, but could not get a job. Schools were only interested in hiring "minorities" when I considered teaching. I made more money from my AAS in Automotive Technology than I ever did from my history degree. Sometimes, you are poor because of your own poor choices and your unwillingness to change. If you have been making minimum wage since 1989, you are doing something wrong.
