Woman Gets Arrested After Job Interview for Leaving Kids in Sweltering Hot Car

Find a JobAccording to the Associated Press, an Arizona woman is trying to clear her name in court following her arrest. On Monday she pleaded not guilty during her arraignment.

Let’s clarify — she left her two kids in her very hot car during a job interview. Shanesha Taylor is unemployed and on food stamps.

The 35-year-old was unable to find a babysitter for a job interview at an insurance company so she left her two-year-old son and six-month-old baby in her car. Did we mention the key was still in the ignition and the windows were cracked open by one inch?

Apparently a witness discovered the infant crying and sweating as the SUV exceeded 100 degrees. When she returned to the car after her job interview, Taylor was arrested.

Her teary-eyed mug shot prompted Amanda Bishop in New Jersey to establish a fundraising web page. The 24-year-old felt she could relate to the mother because she grew up in a family that wasn’t financially stable. To date, Bishop’s site has managed to raise more than $99,000 for the woman.

According to the piece, Bishop explained, “She could have been at a bar or at a club and leaving her children in the car. Here’s a woman who is an example of someone who is trying – who is trying to better her situation and doing what she can to provide for her children.”
