  • How does someone with low-income retire?

    How can a single person retire when he/she can only muster a little bit above minimum wage their entire life and has to dump most of their income in rent and mandatory bills? Sure they can save roughly 400/mo or so, for when their too old to work, but the money will run out if a person reaches their 80s or 90s.... show more

Sure they can save roughly 400/mo or so, for when their too old to work, but the money will run out if a person reaches their 80s or 90s. Meaning they'd spend their final days in a shelter with mentally ill people and very low end living conditions. I don't see a way, does anyone know?

    I don't have any children but I'm 24 and am still living at home due to my disability and I can't afford to move out. I recently started a new part time job and am due to get my first pay check on Friday. Even though my mum's job is well paid (she's a doctor) she plans on charging me a small amount of rent to teach me the value of money and living. I've never paid rent before as this is my first permanent job. My boyfriend's parents also charge him rent even though he only works one day a week his mum redirects some of his wages into her bank account to contribute to the rent and bills but then her job isn't as well paid as my mum's and his dad is semi retired.

    I have a balance of $5k on my card. I've been paying the minimum payment every month and it really gets me nowhere. I'm hanging onto the money I have in my checking account in case I have an emergency. It makes me feel better knowing the cash is there. I could probably make a 2k payment to my credit card right now but, it scares me. I want the 2K to be in my checking. If I get laid off or sick or something, I won't be able to continue making the minimum payments on what's left on the card. Then my credit score goes down or they will increase my percentage rate. What can I do? What is best?

    Hello all, Last year I started working for a restaurant, 25 - 30 hours during the school year. Huge mistake. I didn't realize how hard working and studying would be. Only a freshman, I was working nights and weekends, constantly staying up late and going to school the following morning. I struggled to balance working, family, and school. My body even developed a physical reaction (seborrheic dermatitis) due to stress. You get the picture. I am starting my second year of college next week. I told my boss I needed her to cooperate with the fact that school is my priority, but she said she still needs me on all these shifts. My dad told me I need to give my two weeks notice if they won't work with my needs because the business is their problem, not mine. My mom said I shouldn't quit until I find a new job. The reason I need some kind of income while in school is because I pay for my own tuition, books, car insurance, gas, and self-care expenses (dentist appointments, visit co-pays, etc.) So yes, I need at least a part-time job. But I can't be somewhere that doesn't respect the fact that I am a student. I am really torn. I know I could find another job, but I just don't want to burn bridges. Campus jobs are great because they are usually no more than 15 hours a week and they allow a great balance, usually no nights and weekends. But if I quit, I will always need to find work during breaks. Help! What would you do?

    I didn't think this was such a big deal, but she came over in a rage because I planted two bushes. She then ordered the gardener to remove them immediately, & then increased my rent AGAIN to punish me for planting them. She just increased my rent six months ago, so to now raise it again over two bushes isn't fair. I rent month to month, so she claimed she can raise it every month if she wants to. Is this true? It's already way too high for what I'm getting. I've never once been late on my rent, and most of the time even pay it early. I'm trying to help her by planting bushes. When I moved in there was grass, now there's just dirt in the front yard. It looks really plain & I doubt it will be easy for her to rent out again looking like it does now. I moved here because I liked the way the front yard looked before she tore everything out. I can't believe what a rage she was in over the bushes. I think there's something mentally off with her.

Now were not speaking and avoiding each other at work because she's being selfish. What is her issue? Its not like i was trying to steal it

An opportunity has come up for me to go away for a week in September. I would like to go, but I don’t know how to approach the bank manager about it. Is it inappropriate, since I’m still just a temp? At the same time, they have not given me an answer yet regarding full time employment, and the temp agency is the one who is paying me. Please tell me your honest opinion, does it make me look bad? What should I do?

    So I moved into a student house 2/3 months ago. When we moved in the property was in an awful condition but the estate agents described it as clean and immaculate! We had broken windows, cockroaches and ants, broken sofas, broken oven the list goes on and on! It’s been nearly 3 months and there are still problems, we still have cockroaches and now they’re starting to lay eggs and have been hatching which is grim. I left a bad google review on the estate agents site and the guy literally came round the very next day saying it was unfair and that I had to take it down, it made me feel really uncomfortable as well as I’m only 20 and he’s a middle aged man. I didn’t think it was professional of him at all. Do I have any rights ? Can I refuse to pay my rent or anything as we’ve still got cockroaches, the fire alarm system is broken and keeps saying general fault! When I told them the same guy that had a go at me over the review told me it means we’ve been smoking in the property which is a complete lie, it actually means there’s a problem with the battery. They then tried to blame us for the broken sofas saying we did it and have ignored the fact that the floor in the garden is cracking and we’re sure there is a basement or something underneath which is very unsafe! What can I do as I’m sure they’re going to try and blame us for a lot more !

    I'm a manager at a fast food burger joint. The other day we had a guy come in and order a burger, fries and a soda but when he goes to fill his cup for soda he discovers that the soda was flat which we didn't realize until then either. He got slightly disappointed because he wanted that particular soda only and wanted to cancel his order and get his money back. At first we hesitated to do that and try to figure out other solutions because we would lose money but in the end we gave him a refund. For future reference, is it a good enough reason to request a refund for a food order that was already taken just because the customer wanted a soda to drink with it that was flat or out of stock?
