NM solo work not just for urban dwellers
21 March 2017
Shawna Austin would have to work at least two minimum-wage jobs, with little time for her 7-year-old daughter, to match what she’s earning now at her home-based job.
Decent-paying work is scarce in Milan, the Grants-area town where the 31-year-old single mother lives.
Austin is a grateful graduate of the new SoloWorks program, which trained her, encouraged her, helped her find a job and then made sure she succeeded at it.
