I am the single mother of one child with no outside financial support. I was diagnosed with cancer last year and then promptly laid off from my job. I work in an at will state so the company did not have to follow any rules or regulations around performance or procedure. Luckily, I have cobra but once that runs out my pre-existing condition will prevent me from obtaining coverage- even if I could afford it. I am also lucky to have found consulting work but my distaste for corporate America and the way the government has coddled the executives of these corporations prevents me from even wanting to work for these companies. I have my MBA, I have international experience and am very capable. but I have lost faith in this country.
I am the 99%
