    I am 31 with 3 Children age 2,7,9. I am willing to learn but the thing that gets me down in life is that I don’t have a metric soon as people hear that sorry no work altough you wouldve been a great candidate. I went to a specaile school because it just takes me a little longer to learn. So how will you ever find a job if nobody is willing to just give you a change in life? If somebody could answer me that please
