The story of a delivery driver who has lost his job and found himself on a food stamp program, in a state that provides millions of dollars in benefits to the disabled.
In the middle of his commute to work, his girlfriend of five years and two kids left him and left him alone in their apartment.
He was struggling to keep up with her and his two kids, so he decided to go home to check into his job.
He went to a Krogand job site, where he found himself in a job that paid him $20 an hour.
But he couldn’t afford it.
“I was like, ‘Man, this is crazy.
This is just crazy,'” he told ABC News.”
It’s a lot of money, but I’m not going to take that.
I’m a human being, and I’m going to get help, and it’s not going.
That’s when I started looking at the state of the economy.
And that’s when my wife, who’s disabled, started asking me, ‘Why are you going to stay?'”
He said he didn’t know what to do.
He needed a job.
“We were both struggling,” he said.
“And we couldn’t figure out what to look for.
And then I looked at the other side of the coin, and there’s a little bit of hope, and that’s what I went with.”
The man who was laid off after six years working at a Krogers in Atlanta was able to get a job as a delivery man.
Now he’s in the process of looking for a new job, which could help him get back on his feet.
The jobs at the store are in the same line of work as the jobs the man lost six years ago.
“So we have a couple of guys in there that were actually able to take advantage of that opportunity and take some of the other jobs off the table and that kind of helped them make it, but also, the opportunity of the job I was able just to keep going and keep on making that paycheck,” Kroger CEO Joe Schulz said.
The company said the laid off worker was hired at the company’s Atlanta-based stores, and has since been laid off.
But he said he’s still in touch with his former employer.
“He’s still talking to his family,” Krogadts spokesman Dave Bower told ABC.
“My understanding is that he’s getting assistance with his taxes, and he’s going to be receiving help as well,” Bower said.
