Where can you get a job when your pregnant? I'v tried a lot of places and I feel like im being shut down because im to far along and due Christmas time.. I can't stay unemployeed for 3 months.. Cost of living isn't cheap, im sure people could agree. Plus im not 18 until March.. Any ideas?

Go down to Job Service and talk to them, sometimes they have temporary positions for work..also see Health and Welfare about getting some help until you get on your feet. Good luck

I'd hope not.

Im glad we have immature adults in this town Wow. Anyways, i have amazing supporting parents that are willing to help me through this. I just was hoping to get on my feet while pregnant. But I guess that's to much to ask. And Wendy, im sure if you read the box on condoms, it says not 100% effective. But thanks for the advice. Haha. Guess all I should say is "Welcome to Miles City, Montana... Full of Teen Pregnancy". Diss on one, your dissing on all. Thanks everyone else for standing up to an immature adult. Her mother must of not taught her a good word of advise, Nothing nice to say, dont say anything at all.

I don't think Wendy even lives here. I don't think half the people who live their lives on here do. And for the person asking about the father if he's helping, what does it matter to you? She was only asking about jobs, probably not wanting to disclose all her personal details. No wonder this website is lame. Good luck in the job hunt.

I was asking out of genuine concern. If he isn't, it indicates an even more desperate situation for this young lady. If he hadn't, I'd thought about setting up a monetary fund at the bank to help her out. But everyone always assumes I have nefarious intent, so I guess I'm just going to have to say FU Que!

My response was directed at:

And Wendy, im sure if you read the box on condoms, it says not 100% effective.


Don't trash a safe, effective form of contraception because you didn't use it. "Not 100%" doesn't mean, "Don't even bother."

If I were going to criticize her family planning skills, I would have, but I didn't because "family planning" and "I'm 17, pregnant, and jobless" don't belong in the same sentence.

Now do I feel bad for the girl because she made an adult choice she wasn't ready for? No, not really, but I do feel bad for her baby because the baby didn't get a choice. By law, employers can't hold her pregnancy against her. They see she's pregnant and find something else to hold against her. The best advice we can give her is to show up to job interviews in a t-shirt that says, "Don't ask, I'm just fat."

As an associate member of the "17, pregnant and jobless" club, I'm going to attempt to move this conversation beyond the (admittedly mild) slut shaming that some of the erstwhile progressives seem to be indulging in, and suggest that, regardless of whatever else happens, get your degree.

An unplanned child isn't automatically a death sentence of hopes and dreams, but it does mean that some of those things will have to be adjusted - but most of those things probably weren't attainable anyways without a college education, so suck up as much of that public assistance as you can and enroll at MCC.

Let me guess, Bridgier's girlfriend got pregnant because he was not aware of the existence of condoms?

Maybe I'm naive, but I don't think too many newly pregnant (pregnate?) teens would go "Huh? What's that?" if you handed them a condom. It's sort of like telling the quarterback "you should have watched out for the free safety" after he throws a pick. He knows.

As the biological child of a 15 year old mother (and adopted), I find all the "poor pregnant teen" crap hilarious. The best thing this girl could do for herself and especially for the baby is give the baby up for adoption and get on with her life. And use condoms. Sorry, Bridgier, my friend. It needs to be said.

Posted by howdy (+4943) 9 years ago
I have to agree with Wendy, that in most cases, the child has a better chance with a loving family that has "chosen" him/her rather than staying with a poverty striken family that is according to statistics going to stay that way in the foreseeable future...Bridgier, most folks don't continue their college years much less post grad years after having babies according to stats at least...at least with an education one has a chance at a middle class life at least IMO..I also believe in most cases, it takes more love to give up a child for adoption than to cling to them as a true parent wants their child to have the best chance...

There you have it folks, the reason abortions should be legal. Wendy's mom must of thought the goop on the end of the clothes hanger was all of it, must of just been some brains.

I guess I fail to read or assume where this girl can't or won't give the baby a good life. She is looking for work, and apparently on or trying to get on her own. I wish Lacilou the best of luck.

Wendy, my friend, Lacilou didn't ask for your opinions on her birth control choices, nor did she invite a discussion upon her plans regarding little lacilou jr, or the future usage scenarios of her ladyparts - she had an employment question, and nothing beyond that.

Now, I feel that I'm running the risk of mansplaining here, but I honestly feel that if you believe in reproductive choice, then you have to give people the benefit of the doubt in the reproductive choices that they make. Do we know the circumstances that led to Lacilou deciding to keep the baby? Were we part of the conversation between her, the father and their parents? No, and to inject our judgments of their choices from a distance is needlessly vituperative.

Look - if your daughter was to come to you and say, "I'm pregnate, and I have decided to do X", and you really believe she should do Y instead, what do you do? Do you coerce her somehow into Y, or do you support her in X, even if you feel that X is the wrong decision?

Once I was certain that my daughter had decided X after fully considering Y,Z and Q, I don't understand how I could do anything other than support her choice - and I'd be the first person to tell anyone who felt that they knew better than those of us actually in the situation to eat a bag of salty salted dicks.

Well said, Bridgier. Thank you.

LaciLou,
The advice about seeking temp jobs from the job service was good. I will second the "get all the education you can". I am certain MCC can help you make a college plan and even get your GED, if you did not graduate. You will likely qualify for financial aid and workstudy. Now is the time to make the future plan, do paperwork, take tests, etc.

If you have any interest in nursing, RN's are making record salaries and are in demand. Otherwise I would stick to business fields. I would suggest a degree in accounting or finance as a final goal. If you have no interest in that, there are lots of technical fields you can make a decent paying career in.

The big thing is to start now with the official preparations so you will feel positive about your future. It will not be easy but you will have a big reason to be more focused and goal oriented than the average student your age. Good luck and stay strong.

Once again, misinterpretation rears an ugly head. Wendy is, as most of you know, a more than competent financial adviser. She was merely suggesting that LaciLou make a tactical commodity purchase, as to buying silver or gold. With current market prices so inflated, less affluent patrons must look to trade in lesser known goods, such as condoms.

Most avid traders use the following book as their guide, and generally refer to themselves as "rubber lubbers".

Ah,MC.COM, a microcosm of discourse and social intercourse in the US today. Apregnant teenager asks advice on getting work and it turns into a free for all of name calling, personal slights and downright
nasty attacks about birth control and abortion. Myself included, sorry Buck. I'll bet everyone on this thread has at least one time
not used a condom when warranted or due to religious beliefs. This

After reading all these responses to my nieces innocent question, let me respond from "our family" perspective. LaciLou asked a genuine question and yes, it is unfortunate that she is pregnant and 17 but I will tell you this, she has family support to help her out with this child and NO she is NOT giving the child up for adoption. Our family helps and supports one another and she is doing a DAMN GOOD job of making adult decisions for what's best for her and her child. My family is there for her to help her out with not only her child and the items the child may need but she is continuing her education by getting her degree for high school. So here is what I say to all of you, unless you know the circumstances, mind your own business and as for me and mine, we stick together like glue and will band together in times of crisis. I, for one, am very excited to meet my great-nephew. I love my niece very much and she is doing the best she can. So if you do know of any jobs available, please post otherwise keep your opinions to yourself. Like LaciLou said, if you can't say anything nice, DON'T SAY IT AT ALL!!!!!!

I'm glad she found a job. It sounds like the is mature for her age and a hard worker. I think this thread should have stayed on job prospects instead of taking a huge swing out to criticize her personal choices or circumstances, but then again maybe the last thing you want to do is mention your personal situation while looking for a job among people who can't see you. I would imagine ALL 17 and 18 year olds have to look pretty hard to find a good job without a college degree these days. The way the economy is going, it is pretty hard to find a job even WITH a college degree, especially if you don't have a very specialized one that aligns with job prospects in the area.

I was about to suggest that she talk to people who are hiring extra people for the Christmas Season. There are always more jobs in the retail sector (and package and mail delivery services) this time of year and if you are a hard worker and people in the company like you, often it could turn into a more permanet job down the road.

Good for you girl! I was a pregnant teen who also used protection and still ended up pregnant... I still graduated with a 3.8 GPA, went to college, got a degree, we make decent money now, own a house, own a new car and live wonderful lives! Just because you get pregnant doesn't mean your life is over...its really just beginning. Age doesn't matter. I've been in your postition before and had people like the people on here putting me down and I didn't let it get me down, it made me want to prove them wrong and I did and so can you! I would have never wished teen pregnancy on you or myself, but I wouldn't change it for the world! I'm very proud of you girl and I don't even know you! Most people in your situation would have just used the system and sat on their butts, but you got a job with benefits to provide for your baby and you. You are a stronger and braver person than most of these people posting these ridiculously immature rude comments on here. Stay strong, believe you can do anything!

I would just like to say this is crazy. As many have said before this was about a job not how she got pregnant, why she got pregnant, or what she should do with her baby. This town is full of trash talkers, it makes me sick.

Look around Miles City there are tons of teen pregnancy, so what are you going to do about it? Give a lecture about condoms and birth control? Do any of you even know these kids? What are you doing to help prevent it if your only suggestions are abortion or adoption.

Several of Miles City teenagers are or have been pregnant. Several of these teenagers finsihed high school, NO GED, HIGH SCHOOL and have the support needed to go on to college!!!! This is about a JOB, NOT an innocent life. How dare you tell her to keep her legs closed, use a condom, give her baby up, or have an abortion. This just goes to show how very judgemental this town is. Always putting others down and critizing people for their spelling. How about stepping up and showing support or know what you are talking about before you say something.

It makes me sick that people believe all teen mom use the system and take advantage of it. The system is there to help, but not everyone uses and abuses it. I myself was a teen mom and have a large family. I take care of my own!!! I finished school and have a degree, Does that make my children a mistake?

This is an innocent child that will not have no suffering as I know for a fact he is loved more than anyone could imagine. Way to go Laci Lou for finding that job!!! Thank you everyone who supported her with kind words, and for those of you that couldn't maybe you are the one's that need to be removed from here. I am so sick of seeing everything turn into a negative agrument each time someone is seeking a little advise or make a comment. Grow-up people!!!!
