Sorry to hear that I've had to deal with Michigan's difficult economy for a couple of years. Hang in there, of course this is why beer is such a good thing.

Don't they still have a prison in those parts? I'm sure they're always looking for help.

Actually, we could probably use an intern this summer, but I'm >2000 miles from Joliet.

Wish I could help a fellow puppet, but there is jack squat up here in Rockford.
Please don't feed the psychos.

I hear you. I've been out for 8 months (although I have a phone interview tonight that sounds promising), and did not have a full time job for 28 straight months prior to my last position.

You might take a look at some of the medical specialist jobs. Surprisingly, you can become a pharmacy tech by simply passing a test (no school required). Physicians assistant, dentist assistant, and radiology technicians usually don't take very much training. It may not help in the short run, but it could in the long run.

In the shorter term, check in with any lawn and garden stores, greenhouses, farming stores, etc. They are about to hit their busy season and they should be staffing up a little in the next few weeks.

And if you are absolutely desperate... I mean really, really desperate... check out these guys (or a similar company if they aren't in your area) http://www.wisintl.com/v2/. I have worked for them, and it sucked. In fact, it sucks so bad it seems they are almost always hiring. But you can expect 25-35 hours a week, and if you have a clean driving record you can pick up a little extra driving the counting crews from one Wal-Mart to another.

Edgar, I don't live in your area (originally from Elmhurst..now in Tennessee), nor do I know what type of work you can do. If you let me know what field(s) you are looking at, I might be able to put you in touch with some former clients or contacts. I will do whatever I can. I know what you are going through. You can reach me at the e-mail address below.
....and, if you can keep your head about you while those around you are losing theirs; then, you ...........probably don't understand the gravity of the situation!

You might have to work first shift. I had my interview today looks like I'm gonna be a desk jockey. It's really good for me because I'm looking to save up and move out west.

EDIT: You could probably get a third shift position if you worked in a factory. pays less but eh it's a job

Out West? You looking for floor space? Or couch space? I *do* have a nice shed that I can rent out for a while, but I'm gonna need to clear everything out once I start growing millions of dollars worth of dope in it this summer.
