Help hard-working Workstudy Students keep their jobs!!!
This petition made change with 73 supporters!
Work-study positions are available to students who need more than regular financial aid can give them. We are hard-working, low payed employees who are vital in the day-to-day work of colleges in Arkansas. I manage all campus visits and help organize events on campus at NWACC. I found out today while working an event I helped organize that had over 150 prospective students present that 34 other work studies and myself will not be able to return on Monday and will not be able to return until federal money is available again. We can't afford to wait a few days or weeks until the government decides to start up again, that is why we are work studies - we NEED the extra support to get by while working towards the American dream. Please sign this petition and help us student work-studies get our jobs back!
NorthWest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) has found a way to reinstate our 51 work-study positions on Wednesday October 16th - BUT without Federal aid, we don't know how long we will be able to keep our jobs. Also, work-study positions around the nation (thousands of hard-working students serving their community and trying to pay rent) may still be out of their work-study jobs. We can't risk our future on those in office not doing whatever it takes to keep our students working. Please sign my petition and share it with as many people as possible so we can put pressure on our officials to "do the right thing"!
