This is great. Thanks Nena for the topic by the way.
So I guess it just always seemed wierd to me how Billy would survive. I always assumed that the other natives who aren't mentioned in the series would have regular jobs but Billy, Harry & Sue, Sam & Emily, all confused me. I realize that they are all leaders and have to deal with the pack stuff but they still have to make a living some how. Billy would probably get some governement founding considering 1. He's native (I'm not sure what the policies in the USA are like, but in Canada natives get some help from the government and their land for free - although it's usually not enough... but I won't get into the injustices for native people.) and 2. He's physically disabled. But would these two reasons really give him enough founding from the governement to pay for his daughter to go to school? What about Harry and Sue, they have two children to support, yet it never mentions them having jobs, only that Harry likes to fish a lot (which I guess he could sell). And then Sam and Emily. Emily stays at home and cleans and cooks all day, as Bella remarks in New Moon, and Sam is a pack leader. So where is their money comming from?
I wish we had some positive answers.
