"I got fired from my job once because I wouldn't do something illegal. He, the boss, was trying to get around paying taxes by doing something with our tips. I wouldn't do it, so he fired me. Pretty sure he just didn't like me." - Lucy is a waitress in New Orleans.
"I told myself if I didn't have a baby by the time I was 25, I wasn't gonna have one. I wanted to have a baby, raise her and still be able to be young and live my life. I raised my baby. I'm still young, I move around and I enjoy life." - Dianthe Johnson works in the construction field and is also a Lyft driver in New Orleans.
