We have been squeezing by for t he last few months while looking for a job. I finally started the work first program to help me find a good job. Apparently their version of a good job now is.... minimum wage anywhere. I hate being on aid from the state ( the only way you get into this program) and I had heard that they help you find really good jobs in your field. So i guess I'm disappointed that there's a really good chance I'm going to end up at a minimum wage job :/

Too bad you're not here in Kentucky. Nortons is hiring receptionists and MA's.

I was on state aid and tried a minimum wage job but couldn't make all the bills, so I quit and went back to school. Now I work at Nortons Full time and get full benefits including health insurance.

Do you have any plasma donation centers? They're always looking for phlebotomists.
