I just recently split from my wife and I'm really down on my luck. Bills are piling up and I'm having a hard time finding a job that pays enough to keep the lights on. I don't have a college degree and all the jobs I qualify for pay barely minimum wage. I'm getting depressed and don't know what to do. I'm one more late payment away from being tossed on the street.
I came across an ad for an opening at Ryder Trucking that seems to offer decent... see more

I received a felony charge about 10years ago. I took my ex husbands fall. He owned his own company. He had 3 kids we had full custody off.

This was a job that my ex-husband and I worked together. I loved it. It was working on a horse ranch that had cows and pigs chickens Etc. I would still be there but my ex-husband and the boss got into it. My boss said that I didn't have to leave but my ex-husband had to. At the time he was not my ex-husband he was my husband. So I left also.
