From The Blaze:  Though he has apparently declined part-time jobs in other cities due to financial and travel constraints, this overqualified man has allegedly been without employment since last November. Currently, he resides in a homeless shelter, describing his current situation as “just simply bad luck.” In terms of his shelter experience, he says it is one he hopes to never have to repeat in his life. Below, watch him describe what he has gone through in a YouTube interview:

Time’s NewsFeed summarizes:

Johnson spent all of his savings and sold all of his earthly belongings, including his car, to prevent foreclosure on his parents’ house in Cleveland, Ohio so that his mother with Alzheimer‘s wouldn’t have to move.

“They paid my way through school,” Johnson said. “If it’s going to take ten years, I’m going to make their final years safe and comfortable.” He then moved to Boston expecting to take a job he had been offered, but found out when he got there that it had been given away.

From YouTube.com: 55 year old Maurice Johnston lives in Boston, by way of Cleveland. He has a Masters Degree in Plasma Physics from Dartmouth College, and a masters in Electrical Engineering and acoustics from Purdue University. He’s worked over 10 years at Lockheed Aerospace & Aerodyne Research Corp. Maurice has taught in Science and physics, and took care of both his parents in their time of need. Maurice is very well spoken, (he sounds like Obama) and is very kind, so why is Maurice homeless…..
