These days, it almost feels like life’s the full-time grind while work is the escape.
Angel, an employee at Modell’s sporting goods store will tell you that. While training a new associate named Joey during the filming of a documentary, she confided to him about her struggles.
“I love this job… but it hasn’t always been this way,” Angel confesses. When Angel turned 25, she became pregnant and lost her old job as restaurant manager.
Angel said that she’d been living there with her three children for two years. Prior to that, she said that they’ve slept in bus stops and had been “down to where we didn’t have any money to eat.”
By the end of her story, both Angel and Joey were wet-eyed.
