Jade Brooks

At 21 years old, Jade Brooks pulls in her family’s only full-time salary, working at a hospital switchboard. Brooks’ mother just lost her job at a health insurance company – a casualty of the plummeting economy. She’s found part-time work at the hospital, but between them, they make only $400 weekly after taxes and insurance, Brooks said. Their rent is $1,810.
