The Census is HiringSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Tue, 02/03/2009 - 00:43
I saw this ad in the local paper today. I know a lot of people are hard up and looking for work, so I thought I'd pass this along. Yes, it is working for the Federal government, but yes, the Census is also in the Constitution.
Back in 1999, just back from a trip around the world, unemployed, and hard up for cash, I took a job working for the Year 2000 Census in Seattle. This was still years before I'd heard of Ron Paul, and the only understanding I had of Austrian economics was an intuitive one. And let me tell you, working for the Census was a great learning experience. I learned a lot about government waste. But it also got me through and, as very mundane events can do, it changed my life. But that is a story for another time.
So there you go - do with it what you will. If you can read and you can write, you are no doubt eligible for a job. Sign of the times, friends. Sign of the times.
