On wages like that, they can’t afford medical help if they get sick or hurt. They also can’t afford suitable housing, so even after they’re done working for next to nothing they can barely even relax. 2.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
