Jessica Walton was at the drive-thru distribution at Florida SouthWestern State College. She’s an administrative assistant who was laid off three months ago. The company she worked for has still not reopened. She’s surviving on unemployment. Jessica, her 8-year-old son, and her parents all live together and her parents are helping her out. These times are hard and scary because you never know what is going to happen next, she said.

What does the future hold?

“I’m definitely getting a job as soon as possible. That depends on the economy,” she said.
