Is this for a survey or are you just curious? And does this mainly pertain to MI people? I'm not working but I hope to have a job soon. The economy sucks here.

It sucked when those people judge us because disability. It tough to find job in downriver and Wayne area.

I will not go back to Dearborn public School for janitor it isn't worth to work when your paycheck go to gas and lunch.


I could get good job but it 60 miles away.

Go check with your local wal mart.. if you're there long enough there's a decent benefits package.. and i can tell you 1st hand that working as an unloaded is the easiest and hardest job you'll ever have.. basically a screw off job but you get some walking and lifting in.. i know our wal mart is ALWAYS looking for unloaders.. if i dont find someting soon i may just go back there for a while

Yeah, I need to finish my application. I know the manager for the back area.
I put on there that I didnt want to be a cashier, so IF they ever looked at my application I would pry end up with a night job as a stocker.

The Jeep uses too much gas, I need a job. I owe dad 1200 for the jeep, plus some for parts and I have to do a ton of work on it this summer....
lol

When the job situation started getting crappy (about 5 years ago) I made work for myself and have been very busy ever since.
I work for me and have never been happier.

I have always been interested to see what percentage of people are unemployed total. The figures on tv are not accurate they only tell certain stats. Could you change the poll to say unemployed on unemployment or unemployed no unemployment?

you do know that its against federal law to discriminate by disability?

personally I would report anyone who did that. I have had it done to me and it sucks.
