    I have been moving from place to place the entire Pandemic. There was no help at the beginning, especially for a domestic abuse victim afraid to report. So, I have used up all my savings. Had to pay hotel bills, friends, and sleep in the car.
    I then enrolled in school online. I was doing well until I misanswered a question for the Pandemic assistance unemployment program and had to drop out to find work. Which lead to being kicked out of a friends due to hear fear of contamination.
    Now, I owe $4,000 to unemployment. I filed an appeal twice. I have heard nothing. I work temporarily part time and still cannot find a stable job or home.
    So, who exactly was protected? Definitely not people like me.
