I don’t have stable job since COVID-19 and also have strong problems with health
Working in same place with 5 hours,3x a week.
Wanted to make us all laugh because the baby I’ve been staying in a hotel paying weekly since covid and now with the restrictions being lifted the hotel is no longer taking weekly gusts because the summer is coming up I have to move out by the Thursday before Memorial Day and I have some money saved but not enough to get first last and security at a place and all the hotels Skyrocket around here because I’m on a New Jersey Shore and I won’t be able to afford a weekly rate at a hotel
I entered the U.S. in 2017 legally.
I decided to stay to live in the US. While trying to find a job I was spending my money, my family owns a company for windows door and locks back in my home country Montenegro. Most of the time until April 2019 I was spending money that I saved back home. In 2019 I started working as a waiter at Kellogs diner in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I served the community with dignity and pride, it was my honor to be a part of the Brooklyn community and contributing to the society. Everything was perfect until Covid started. My last working day at Kellogs was March 12th 2020. It has been a real struggle since then. I wasn’t working for 8 months and in the meantime I got in dept around 25.000$.
I started working for a cable company called ‘Connect US’, worked for about 4 months and I had to stop doing that job too because I wasn’t able to make an appointment at DMV for a driving license. Also Covid related problem.
I have troubles with my landlord, sometimes I don’t have enough money for food. I’m getting married soon, my girlfriend is an American citizen and I will apply for SSID and work authorization. But now I really need help.
Bueno no ingresos y yo trabajaba como mesero, corriendo comida limpiando mesas y preparando tragos, desde marzo del 2020 me las e visto muy difícil para poder solventar los gastas de renta , comida y medico
I work as a server they send me home due Covid is been almost year and half not working
Due to economic hardship i lost my job
I would normally get some demanding d for cakes and such, Since there was limited gatherings I am not booking a lot of jobs for cakes and baked goods
I ran my own business and did private events as well as community events to bring awareness to local agriculture and farming. Since the pandemic I have had to rebuild my e tire life. When the pandemic hit my now ex fiance kicked me out of our home with my two small children. I had to find a home and start over with next to nothing as well as losing my job. I have been playing catch up ever since and still haven’t gotten back on my feet. My goal has always been to help others in any way possible and to bring people together. It’s so cool to see people come together to help displaced workers during this pandemic. I know it’s troubled times for everyone. It’s been extra difficult with distance learning as a single parent to fond work and I also returned to college while looking for work in hopes working towards a degree may help me find a career again. I once swore I would never be in a spot to need help. It’s been difficult to accept that I need help due to circumstances outside my control like a worldwide pandemic. Nothing could’ve prepared me for it. I am working towards being on my feet and a better life every single day.
