Emoyment not an option!
I have really bad credit and I am currently a student full time. My husband works full time, and we can barely make ends meet now. I have tried to find a job that can coincide with my school, my children school, and my husband's jib. We have one vehicle. I have found that with the major I am studying, an employer will run my credit before employment, and since I have poor credit my chances of employment are not in my favor. I have tried explaining this to the accounts that are in collection, but none will work with me, which is understandable. Is there anything that can be done? Bankruptcy is not an option because I do not have enough debt to file. Any advice would be appreciated!
