You May Have Clients Whose Wages Are Being Garnished and Don’t Even Know It

When people have social issues, they often also have financial problems. The two regularly go hand-in-hand. If you help people who are facing social issues, such as an addiction, mental health problems, or hardships resulting from a divorce, it is important to understand that there may be financial issues that have emerged because of the problem, or financial issues that contributed to their problem.

Often solutions to financial problems directly improve the social issues that people face. Usually those with financial problems suffer in silence because they are too embarrassed to let the people around them know that they are struggling.

Wage garnishments are extremely embarrassing because when one occurs the individual’s employer is notified. Wage garnishments result in crushing hardships to your clients and if you help people who have financial problems it is important to have (delete up) a dialogue on the subject so that they know help is available.

Here is an article that we released at DebtCare this past month that you can share with your client. Titled, “What Is a Wage Garnishment?” it will educate your clients about what they can do if they need help dealing with one. http://www.debtcare.ca/articles/wage-garnishment-we-explain-what-is-a-wage-garnishment/.

As you know, at DebtCare Canada we make it our mission to help people who struggle with debt. Through our WeCare Canada initiative we work with organizations that help people who have social issues deal with their debt and organize their finances. If you would like information about the WeCare Canada initiative, would like to host a WeCare day, or if you simply know someone who could use some help with a financial problem, please contact me today.
