"I enjoy coming to work and learning different things...
I really like my kids to know I work...
This should have happened 10 years ago...
I believe many of my friends wouldn't do no drugs if they had a chance for a real job." - Rebecca, a woman from Chicago's notorious housing projects, high school dropout and former welfare recipient now working at UPS.
