    Issues With Social Services

    On July 24, 2012 I had an appointment to go to the Riverhead Dept of Labor to turn in my job search sheets. My worker told me they couldnt accept them because I had done everything online and did not provide contact names and phone numbers. I had started the job search before my childcare was even approved so I had no choice to do it online. I do not always have time on my cell (its a pre-paid...

    does it seem like there's no point?

    There is zero job stability anymore: they will lay you off to hire someone else if they will work for one dime less an hour than you. They will work you to death and never give you a raise or promotion, because the bottom line is more important than employee retention. This is because ever since the Great Recession (started), they have us by the balls, and they know it.All these new jobs...

    40-hour work week

    Hello,I've been trying to get a message out to anybody who will listen. Of course, we all have financial difficulties, but I've been trying to think of something that might help everybody, and this MIGHT. It's time to think about phasing out the 40-hour work week. We have mechanized and automated until there's just not enough work left for everybody anymore. Simple supply and demand tells us that...

    An at home job

    I have been looking for an at home job that is legit for quite some time. I was told by my doctor that I am not ok mentally to go to work though I still have bills to pay. Disability is taking forever and I have no idea what to do. I am so stressed because of it. Does anyone know of any at home jobs that are trustworthy? Please? Anyone?
