    If there's one thing i've agree with her on is this quote:

    "People only live this way because we let them"

    The sad thing is this could happen to many people.

    So many people live one or two paychecks away from poverty... and if you loose the house or loose your job it is a LONG climb back up.

    I slept in my car for a period during school and I had a job. I know what it feels like.

    The SECOND CNA who worked 7 days a week 16 hours a day to buy a house.

    She makes $324 a week know working as a CNA and had to go without food to make her car payment because if they took the car she would loose her job.

    In Hartford,CT!

    Why do CNA's make so little???
