Poor People – You Have to Speak Up!

Now, please. If you sit quietly by, California will make you even more poor.

Kiss your Cash Aid Good-bye. I know it still leaves you at less than 50% of the Federal Poverty Line, but that Cash Aid may be all you have or it may supplement SSI, or employment. Sometimes the $210 – $694 or so you receive means you can buy school supplies and clothes for your children or keep a roof over your head.

I know there is a stigma to being poor – but HELLO – it’s a recession, more of us are poor than ever right now.  Speak up about how the assistance you recieve helps you and your family.

“I know that every family is hurting. Every state and every nation too. This is just a global recession that we are in.”-Arnold

There are more than 560,000 of you who depend on these funds and many more who are at the brink of needing them. SPEAK UP NOW!

Cutting CalWORKS means 57,000 private-sector jobs would be lost (including MINE!)

Tell the Governor, your Assembly person and State Senator that you have a voice (and a vote) by answering this question:

WHAT DOES YOUR CASH AID DO FOR YOU?

I am giving you the contact information you need – now YOU NEED to take 5 minutes and be heard. No Excuses!
