Juggling two jobs can be tough, but working two jobs and then going home to a third is even more difficult. Working this extra "shift" is a routine Tami Forbes knows all too well as a single, working mom.
Forbes began working as the store manager for a struggling Key West, Florida, pie business shortly after filing for divorce from her ex-husband. She was simultaneously working long shifts at a bar.
"Trying to rebuild a life on a single income in this town was incredibly difficult. I was very frequently picking which bill I could pay," she said.
Not only was Forbes faced with the dilemma of how to pay bills. She was also searching for answers on how she was going to pay for her cesarean section in order to deliver her baby — a procedure that can cost thousands of dollars if uninsured, as she was.
Luckily, Forbes' supervisors at the time brought in someone to help.
