Financial strain takes a toll on Georgia families every day. As people try to recovery from the economic recession, debt continues to make this very difficult. In some cases, people learn that their wages will have to be garnished to repay debts, which only makes the pursuit of financial stability that much more of a challenge.
According to a recent report by ProPublica, the number of people having their wages garnished because of consumer debt has nearly doubled over the past seven years. Employees are seeing their paychecks diminished by creditors, whether a person's debt stems from credit cards, unpaid loans or medical bills.
