During the last four to five years our economy has plummeted. The working class is feeling the pinch financially, emotionally, and physically. Those with Degrees and those without.
Several companies have laid off employees, gas prices have tripled, and home prices have doubled. Even with a job and or career living today has become more tasking than ever. Things that were once affordable are now things we struggle to obtain. In Florida minimum wage was raised, that was a start, but we need more!
