I am a first year teacher; I accepted a job in a rural district. My daily commute is 85 miles 1 way. I am struggling to make ends meet right now. Rent is due, bills are due, college loans are due, and gas is very expensive. I just found out I will not get paid until September 20th. I don't know what I can do. I am going to talk to the business manager this afternoon to see if there are any options. What can I do? My wife got paid from her school but it is not enough to cover the expenses. The last time I got paid was in July and I am down to $300.
