With children of her own to care for and a desire to have a job she would be proud of, Manoushka “ Money” Gaston decided years ago to pursue a career as a certified nursing assistant.

The 27- year- old Lowell resident said she worked toward the position and received her nursing assistant certification roughly four years ago. Despite the achievement, she points out she can’t get a job at a nursing home or other health care facility.
