What do we do? I'm 21, my husband is 25 we have a two year old son, but neither my husband nor I can find work. He's an electrician but is licensed in New York not Kansas, I can do just about anything, I've worked as a special needs para in an elementary school, I've done in home nursing, I've done social work you name it I can probably get the job done. The problem is, neither of us have been hired anywhere since we moved to Wichita. He gets unemployment through his union in New York, and because of that we don't qualify for any assistance, I can't get childcare assistance so I can put the little one in a day care so I can even work part time. We don't qualify for WIC. We're struggling in all senses of the term, and it's the first time in my entire working life that I haven't had a job. We've applied everywhere from gas stations to fast food restaurants, he's been to two different temp. agencies but no s from anyone. What do we do?

Go to your local unemployment office And take the class about the one-stop job centers. You may be eligible for grants for training. (Your husband can study for his electrician's license?) Definitely you can get resume help and other tips and tricks.

    Just curious.... but did you research the Wichita job market prior to moving out there? I assume (based on your previous posts) that you moved there to assist your mom. Do you hold a CNA certification?

    actually... we did do alot of research, and my husband wanted to move to wichita (he moved from the bronx to kansas to be with me and we lived in a tiny town before wichita) because there were better job oppurtunity's as far as electrical work, he was with a company for about 5 months before they downsized and cut him. The other reason we moved was to get away from my mother, she's insane, i was living with her before my husband got down here and she grabbed both of us one day and told us if you don't want the responsibility of raising my children and taking care of my house then you can leave, so three days later we did, we had already planned to leave, it was a bad inviroment for our son, we've had to move 3 different times since coming to wichita because she stalks us. Life has been very rough for the last year or so and we want to get back to N.y. but need the money to do so. My husband has gotten several job offers up there, for like 60 an hour, but we wouldn't have a place to live until he got paid.

    yeah... it definitely does not give anyone good feelings, I want so badly to raise my son differently then my mother raised me, but at the rate we're going the only difference will be that we're actually trying to give him a good life! Thank you though, I'm glad to hear that we're not the only ones that have been through this!
