Stephanie Amerpohl: Job at risk
Stephanie Amerpohl: Job at risk
Stephanie Amerpohl
Community support provider, 29, Milwaukee, Wis.

My full-time job is mentoring children and working with families in the community. It is getting to the point where I cannot afford to do my job. If I don't have enough money to fill my gas tank up, I cannot work. It is not fair to these children and families when their mentors and service providers have to quit their jobs due to gas prices.

There have been days when I have had to cancel appointments due to lack of gas. I have worked fewer hours because I did not have enough gas. I have student loans that I cannot pay, because gas is a priority. I live in a small studio apartment because I cannot afford anything more.
