I have been struggling to find employment and keep it. I will get hired places and then let go before training even starts because I don’t have transportation to go to Elmira, Horseheads and all the other locations they send for training. When I find a job that doesn’t require me to travel out of Ithaca to train I’m only making $10.00 an hour max. If I could make living wage I would get a car so I could continue to move up in my position at a company and travel for the training. I could also visit my mom more and help take care of her medical bills so she wouldn’t have to stress. Last, I would be able to be self sufficient and not have to rely on assistance from any agency or friends.
