Family Of Independent Complaint - No Respect - Case Worker
DETROIT, MICHIGAN -- I went down to the welfare office in Detroit Mi on W. Jefferson, I went to this office to try to get some help for my utility bill, which I have a shutoff notice for. When the worker call my name to ask about my finance situation, he start asking me question about my finance situation at the security offices desk, while the officer where sitting there. I explain to him why I was falling on hard times and that I was on workmen corp, and I was only receiving $109. a week and I go to therapy 4x's a week and plus, and Doctors 2 or 3x's a week, sometimes I have 7 doctors appointment within that week. I don't have a car, so I has to pay everyone to take me back and forth to my appointments and gas is gone up, but I have to go so they will pay my doctors bills, I have just enough money for gas once a week. I had 3 surgeries, all this was from an accident coming home from work. The case worker start asking me all kind of personal questions that I felt as if it wasn't the security officer or the other customers business to know my business, he (the case worker) should had took me in the back at him desk to discuss my finance situation, he took every one else back there, I was the only one who he felt as if everyone need to know my problem. It makes me mad because I really hate having to ask the welfare for anything,they treat you like trash and they talk to you as if you were a crack head, they just don't have no respect for the customers, if it wasn't for us they wouldn't have any job, but they will figure that out when the machines takes over there jobs or welfare be cut completely out and people will have to rely on something else. You have 10% of the people who just fail on hard times and need a little help to get back on there feet, but they look at it as the stuff is coming out of there pocket and its not. I am not the one who like to ask anyone for anything and when I do, I don't mind you saying no, but do you have to be so nasty about it or rub my face in it, or say it so everyone can hear you??? I know most of them don't even have a college degree, and if they get lay off, there isn't anything that they will be good at, beside being a disrespectful fool.
