One of mom's coworkers set up a GoFundMe for her because she can't afford to get herself to work because of all of the work she has missed due to surgeries and therapy. They can't fire her but she has no more benefits.

Apparently in KS as a state employee they don't get short term or long term disability. They get access to a shared hours pool but their access to it goes away after a while. Mom's boss didn't tell her she was out of shared hours for weeks. As a result she was shorted over $6000 last year and it will be more this year.

In any another first world country this would not be the case. My mom called to ask if it was within propriety to share the link herself. I cannot even imagine the situation she is in.

Beyond time for single payer healthcare in the United States of America.
