Single Mom

I am a single Mother of 4 with 2 still young and living at home. I work for a local grocery store. I have no choice but to have to receive food stamps since I can only work part time in order to take care of my sons. Like most women I do not recieve child support for my children even though it's court ordered. Ask yourself, do you think you could feed two young boys on $7.50 an hour? I am making myself ill not eating so my kids can eat. I have started to loose my hair due to mal-nutrition. Please, I beg you to try to see reason and raise the minimum wage. Thank you.
