Re: Ok Trekkers, Don't Forget To Sign Up For Mandatory Obamacare Oct 1 Have you considered the possibility of getting part-time work of less than 40 hours per week to supplement your family's income and help out a little with a few of the bills if nothing else? Also, even a part-time job would give you a little bit of extra pocket money that you wouldn't need to rely on your parents to provide you and that little bit of greater financial independence might make you feel a little more confident and self-assured. Seasonal holiday work is coming up because of the Christmas retail season. It might not be a lasting position, but there might be a local retailer in your area who would be hiring part-time and/or Holiday positions, and many pay above minimum wage. Just a suggestion, dude. A little bit would be better than nothing.
