I currently am on leave from my teaching position with the public school system. Money is VERY TIGHT because I only received $700 for 2 weeks while I was deemed 'shirt term disabled' during the 6 weeks after my daughter was born. I was only able to save enough money to cover bills over the summer, when we are not paid. I was expected to return to work when my daughter was only 7 weeks old. No way!!! Thankfully, my mother has helped us, but she is using her retirement money, a woman who worked for 40 years, paid taxes, & then was unable to collect unemployment when she closed her business because she hadn't received a paycheck in 2 1/2 years. Something is VERY wrong with these 2 pictures!!!
