THE JOBS OF FIVE HOMELESS WOMEN I MET YESTERDAY
You thought homeless people were mostly unemployed and unskilled? So did I! Wrong. Some are skilled workers doing more for society than many well-paid people I know (self).
- •Marketing Assistant
- •Electrical Engineer and Masters degree candidateShe moved from the Middle East to the U.S. For her program.
- •Head Start childcare worker
- •Dental hygienist in trainingWho was also contemplating giving stand-up a shot at a nearby open mic night. She certainly has the chops.
- •Eldercare CNAShe takes care of the old people we stick in nursing homes. Not an easy job. But she loves working with the elderly so...oh did I mention she's in her twenties like me?
