Things have been really difficult for Brandon’s family since his mother became ill and couldn’t work. Based on the shortage of funds, Brandon and his younger brother haven’t been able to get clothes and some of their other basic necessities needed on a day to day basis.
Going to his father for money was out of the question, they spoke on the phone a few times, but he’s never met him. Being 16 years old now, he has tried getting a job but hasn’t had any luck. Troy, a hustler from the neighborhood noticed Brandon’s financial problems and offered him a job.
On his way home from school every day he would see Troy and his boys on the corner “Working” and it didn’t look too dangerous to him. He understood that what they did may be illegal, but he was getting desperate.
What advice would you offer Brandon??
