My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

Need a job? The Census is hiring.

For the millions of Americans who are currently unemployed, short term relief may be found by working for the Census. In towns and cities across America, the Census Bureau is hiring. Ostensibly, competition will be stiff, even in locales nobody’s ever heard of. Check out these local news reports:

Census hiring in Pratt, Kansas

Census hiring in Taylor, Texas

Census hiring in Fresno, California

Census hiring in Pasadena, California

    NEED A JOB? HOW WOULD YOU LIKE ONE THAT REQUIRES YOU TO GO OUT AND BUY NEW CLOTHES (since your CL, tells you there is a dress code, NO JEANS allowed, not even DRESS JEANS) AND ONE THAT REQUIRES YOUR VEHICLE BE IN GOOD SHAPE, WITH REMINDERS THAT MAY IS TAKE CARE OF YOUR CAR MONTH! SO THAT YOU CAN DRIVE SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES ON BACK ROADS THAT WILL MAKE YOUR VEHICLE BOTTOM OUT, POSSIBLY REQUIRING A NEW MUFFLER AS A RESULT..
    THE JOB PAYS WELL ENOUGH… THE ONLY TROUBLE IS IT LASTS ONLY TWO WEEKS AND YOUR RELATED EXPENSES MAY PRETTY MUCH EAT THE COSTS OF THE CLOTHES YOU BOUGHT AND THE CAR REPAIRS YOU DIDN”T NEED, BUT NOW DO…
    OF COURSE… SURPRISE… :

    YOU WERE TOLD YOU’D GET TO WORK FOR “…SEVERAL MONTHS,”

    SOMEONE MADE A BIG BOO BOO.

    AND IT IS ACTUALLY TWO WEEKS WORTH OF WORK. LIVE AND LEARN. OH YEAH AND THERE REALLY WAS NO DRESS CODE, YOUR CL MADE THAT PART UP, BUT THEN WHEN YOU BEGAN THE ENDEAVOR YOU DIDN”T THINK CL’s WOULD LIE ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE THAT, OR HOW LONG YOU’D BE WORKING. THEY KNEW.
    SO IF YOU CAN DO THIS IN AN URBAN OR SUBURBAN AREA IT MIGHT BE WORTH DOING.

    TRUST ME THOUGH, TWO WEEKS OF PAY CHECKS WON’T COVER THE COSTS OF BUYING A NEW MUFFLER AND NEW CLOTHING FOR WHAT TURNED INTO A COUPLE WEEKS OF WORK.
    AND SORRY BUT THEY ARE DELIBERATELY HIRING AN EXCESS OF LISTERS, JUST SO THEY CAN APPEAR TO BE HIGHLY EFFICIENT, WHEN ACTUALLY, THEY COULD HAVE HIRED FAR FEWER AND NOT WASTED THE MONEY “TRAINING” TWENTY PEOPLE TO WORK FOR TWO WEEKS, AS OPPOSED TO TRAINING FIVE PEOPLE FOR EIGHT WEEKS.
    ACTUALLY I THINK THIS WAS ALL DONE, IN PART TO HELP RETAILERS AND BUSINESS THE VAST AMOUNT OF MONEY I EARNED DIDN’T GET TO GO TO BILLS OR THINGS WE NEEDED, IT WENT TO CLOTHES, AND A MUFFLER I WOULDN’T HAVE NEEDED IF I HADN’T TAKEN MY SMALL CAR OVER HILL AND DALE.
