Jillian has an elementary age child with health issues. In the two and a half years that she was at Walmart, her schedule was not flexible. When she missed a shift to care for her daughter, her hours would be cut. So missing work meant not only missing one day pay, but also losing future hours. These cuts were devastating to her family’s budget, and the stress of choosing between caring for her daughter and going to work was terrible. Eventually, Jillian became homeless and left her job.
