(WICHITA, Kan.) —
The Wichita Workforce Center is where you'll find Antonio Pinchback on a lot of days, looking for work and trying to stay positive.
"You go on interviews and you really don't have the gas money or a babysitter," Pinchback says. "That takes a toll on you, but you still have to be upbeat because in the end, you are looking for employment."
Trained in the culinary arts, Pinchback uprooted his family six months ago expecting Kansas to be the land of opportunity. But now he heads into the holiday season just trying to put food on the table.
"It gets hard for the kids," he says. "I think we're going to do a lot more family time than gift-giving because of a lack of income."
