Not even at such a low hourly rate.
Not a "thread" of decency...
With a week left until the end of the month, she asked her landlord if she could delay her rent by two weeks, and pay interest on it. She had been a responsible renter in the past, so he agreed. Three weeks later, the same sad story — resume submissions, interviews, and rejection emails.
Jill had no family in the area, so she asked several friends if she could sleep on their couches for a month. One friend gave her a week of couch time. Those seven days went by quickly, and still no job. To save face, she told her friend that she had found another place to live and thanked her profusely. She parked it on a street in a safe neighborhood of Los Angeles. It was dark at night, with not a lot of people around. After a week of not being able to shower, eating at a soup kitchen, and sleeping in a car, Jill decided she was not going to find a job smelling like a fisherman who had been out at sea for weeks.
Her hair was matted with sweat and dirt, her skin was dry and peeling, and her dignity was torn to pieces.
She was a mess. So she showed up at the local homeless shelter with her suitcase, and asked for a shower and a bed. Her only thought while standing in line at the shelter with other people who clearly looked homeless, was this: It is amazing what the loss of a job can do to you. That one, basic job was the thread that kept her life together.
Months later, with the help of the homeless agency, Sarah found a job as a receptionist and saved enough money to move into a studio apartment. I know that it's terrifying when you find yourself on the street. Many people who you might find hanging out around the homeless shelter downtown have different stories.
