Imagine you are an older woman, self-supporting.
Imagine you are responsible for raising and supporting your young grandchild.
Imagine you collect social security and pension, but really need to work in order to make ends meet.
Imagine that the job you thought was secure suddenly ended, and for more than a year you were unable to find work.
I do not know this woman other than via email, when she wrote to me in October asking if our company (I was employed at the time) had any work for someone with her skills (we didn't). We have kept in touch since, and even though I know her situation is not unique, I think her story needs to be told. And so, with her permission, here is K's story.
