Blanca cleans houses. She has four kids ranging in age from five to 13. She has no health insurance, and if she misses a day of work because she is sick she doesn’t get paid. She juggles childcare to keep her cleaning jobs. Her sister helps take care of her kids during the day before going to her restaurant job at night. Blanca makes about $1,000 per month.
