Default Need a new job... help a guy out

Yup, exactly what the title says. I work 58 to 65 hours a week so my job does't allow me to go to school. Also about to get into the fire dept as a part timer, which my work also won't allow. Anybody in the Livingston county area know of anyone that's hiring or work for a company looking to hire? Help a guy out. I may be a young buck but I know my stuff.

21, can drive just about anything, 1.5 years shop hand / mechanic, farm work...
I do get paid pretty good hourly, so looking for something close to what I make.

I'm not your typical 21 y/o lazy bastard child that lives at home with mommy / daddy and smokes pot all day either, I've been supporting myself since I was 18. I just work hard.

He wants to go to school and be a fire fighter. His current work schedule will not allow him to better himself and his community.

I'll check that out asap too thanks, and anywhere close to 13 bucks an hour.... which isnt the easiest to find these days. I'd rather sacrafice some money anyway and go to school and make what I really want.
