My name is Tiffany, wife and mother of 2. I've been looking for a job for the past 6 months. My husband makes okay money, but the prices on everything is so unaffordable right now that we struggle every week. My job was with a big corporation that cut our 20 person office to 2 while posting record profits.. I am the 99%!!!
