QUARANTINE TIMES: WHEN IT'S AT YOUR DOORSTEP
Updated: Aug 6
This COVID-19 has been really hard for my family since not many of us have stable jobs and half of my family does not know how to speak English. Everyone is without a job during this pandemic and they’re wondering how they'll be able to afford monthly utilities. Many of them have been struggling to file their unemployment claims online and what I decided to do was post a message on my family group chat and ask them who needed help filling their claim. And everyone needed help so I have been working on their unemployment cases for two weeks now.
