“I spent my money on catching up on bills, such as rent, gas, groceries, and utilities. I got $600, $300 for me and $300 for my child and I’m sorry but if they wanted people to use this money for luxury reasons, I feel they should have given a lot more due to the economy. The way things are going it really doesn’t make sense that everything is rising in cost from gas to house prices but people are constantly getting laid off or their paychecks are not going up. The way things are going in order for a single person to have a decent living you MUST have two jobs. As you can see in the pic I’m at work, thats all I can do is work, due to everything being so high and jobs are not paying thats the only way I can provide for my child. It would have been nice if they sent enough for people like me that work 40 or more hours a week to be able to go on a vacation and use time that I can’t take cause I don’t have the money. I really hope next time the government really take a look at the way things are and have more consideraton on people that work everyday but because of high costs on everything we are just barely getting by.”
