Jim is Homeless While He Waits for his New ID Card

Jim is homeless as he waits on an identification card so he can find work before the cold hits in St. Paul, Minnesota. His tax returns from the previous years and (non-working) credit cards won't suffice, so he has to find another way.

He isn't looking to get rich or amass a fortune; his only wish is for a well-paying job. One that will let him survive from paycheck to paycheck.

It's amazing that barriers as simple as identification are keeping hard-working and willing people out of jobs. Here's to hoping Jim can get through the necessary red tape to earn somewhere to call home.
