We speak with two working moms who know all too well what United Way learned when it analyzed, county by county, what workers make and what it takes to pay basic monthly bills. About one-third of Maryland households are seriously struggling to make ends meet. Victoria Cox, an administrative coordinator and mother of two young sons, and Heather Housand, a dental office manager and mother of three, share details of their daily lives, and the successes and challenges that have come their way. You can also read about the ALICE report (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) here.
