Our little town suffers from seasonal unemployment. To try to offset the effects, the great and good of the town decided to set up a scheme whereby all the people who were fit and able to work could contribute to the general well being of the community whist maintaining some dignity. Their plan was to have them all work down at the local sewerage treatment facility. After having sorted through the waste, picking out all the non-organic matter, they wanted them to grade the remainder and sort it according to colour, size etc. They hoped this would give a general overview of the populace's general health as well as providing some income. Opponents of the scheme however, pointed out that what our town needed was REAL jobs...... not something that was simply 'going through the motions'.

Rent the U-haul and move or file for unemployment. I don't want to sound insensative, that's all I could recommend.

My mom always says "any port in a storm", but I live near a sewage treatment facility and the smell is sometimes horrendous. I can't even imagine have to work there every day....

p.s. it's also right across the street from Nevada State Prison, so they get to smell it too - LOL!!

I'm still trying to figure out how those jobs would provide "dignity".
Possibly, the town "muckety mucks" [sounds appropriate] think the workers would have to definitely pull themselves up by their bootstraps.

They better! Yuck

I'm sorry but I can't see how moving and sorting crap is going to help unemployment. I wouldn't do it.

Not if you're cold or hungry. I'd blow that pop stand in a minute. If you would even consider sorting garbage, work for Mickey D's. At least you'll eat and it is clean
