Struggle On Going Straight - By Mark


Hi. I have to comment on the post about going straight. (ABOVE LINK)
I too work for a minimum wage in a factory and have been in prison three times. I have three kids and a partner and I agree that it doesn't pay to go straight. We are forever struggling and are in debt. But the fact is, is that I don't want to end up back inside again. It's a catch 22. I can't afford to take my family on holidays or treat them whilst being a straight member, but if I wanted to I could by doing something dodgy. I can't see the country getting any better financially so I struggle on like thousands and thousands of other UK citizens. There's not a lot we can do is there? Respect, Mark.
