JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For Karen Chaires, finding a full time job has not been easy. She's tried Walmart and Target and several other places.
"I have even applied for a dog walking job, I can't find a job no matter where I look. ... I was just looking for a cashier job, that's all I want, just give me a job," she said.
She has been working as an office assistant, but her hours got cut back to just 20 a month two years ago.
And, last August, her husband Thomas, who ran the family landscaping business, died.
Now her 19-year-son Billy tries to keep the business going. But, during the winter things really slow down.
Reporter: "Have you ever had a a Christmas this bad?"
"No this is gonna be the worst one," she said.
Her plea ...
