Part-time Employee, No Employment, No Retirement
Margaret Meeker - Williamstown, West Virginia
I have a friend in her early 50's who has been working for a huge bank for two years. She doesn't get insurance because she is part time and does not make enough to pay for food and rent with the same pay check. She has incurred a large debt due to lack of insurance and makes just a little too much to qualify for Medicaid.
Another recent graduate has not been able to find employment.
A man who has worked for the state will have his retirement reduced because of changes in the state retirement program.
