VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
These are misrepresented as low-paying jobs one should avoid, wherein the reality is that they are excellent stepping stones to better paying jobs once a person has some job experience and a track record. These are not career jobs, but could lead to such.
So many young, uneducated people read this crap and conclude they'd rather stay on welfare and probably pocket more, but the reality is that if you don't start at the first rung of the career ladder, 30 years later you'll still be looking to some bureaucrat for your monthly handout.
Start taking control of your own life!
Want more money, go to a tech school or go to college.
That hurts everyone.
And yet they all make more than I do. I've been at my job for about 7 months, 40 hours a week and no benefits.
Having a job is great! or ask those whose car is parked because there is not even any gas money...
Any of these jobs you rate as the "worst" jobs are great to have as they can serve as a springboard to a better future. What really counts is to get up early and be at the cannon feeding it the fire balls with which to ignite your life to come
No we are not just housekeepers. We take care of the needs of older people. Yes we do their
ckeaning and cooking but so much more. Have you ever bathed someone? Cleaned up their
body when they can't? Have you helped them move place to place and go with them when
they have doctor's appointments? How about working with someone who is so confused they
don't know where they are or who you are? Until you do then don't comment.
this is what I wrote earlier:
I'm sorry to hear of your plight. but if you can't find anything, try to work as a volunteer at an organization that could give you some working experience, and hopefully some opportunities.
Years ago I advised a young woman from China who could not find work in the US to work as a volunteer. Today she is managing director of a large non-profit.
Anyone who is employed... even as a volunteer... has a much better chance of getting a paid position with a company as opposed to someone who is simply "unemployed".
Here is my response I have a family to support and bills to pay. I, am an adult. The terms unemployed and resume to me, refer to the fact that I have already held jobs in the past. I had 2 reasons for posting this the first was to sincerely see if it would lead to anything. Apparently I was wrong to think that a world wide forum such as MSN would help. The second, honestly was a after thought .Here I am, someone asking for a chance asking for a job. the original post is not mind blowing I know, I did not intend to put personal information on here as you would in a normal application, but, to hopefully reach someone, anyone who might be in a position to either hire me or maybe knows someone who is looking for help, I believed this would work, what with all the people poo-pooing the welfare takers and having people call others lazy and the like. I thought why not try, it can not hurt ( I was wrong on that one ) so at 9 my local time I will apply for welfare I hear they have a work for benefits program, because employers like these tax cuts for hiring people off welfare. Can anyone tell me if that is a republican or democrat thing, since some here are so keen to point that kind of thing out. To all people that see this, here I am, an American wiling to work but no takers .Think of me when you look at the people you have hired and wonder, where are all the "good" workers . Here's one.
you need to add doctor's office receptionist and hospital office personal!
I was laid off in 2009 and at 54 was doomed (without knowing it) and now for the last 2 plus years have worked as a security guard. Grateful to get anything after the debacle of trying to land back on my feet for 4 plus years and surely not complaining- just bringing it up.
I accept it and as Bruce Hornsby sang "that's just the way it is".
But you want to talk about worst paying jobs?
Try security where I see some jobs at $8 an hour and most well below $10.
The worst part is the expectations are really high for a lot of these jobs for low pay and usually no benefits with required certifications and training which loads the state gravy train with more $.
I am lucky to be where I am now-close to home and away from Corporate grind and stress but from what I see of most jobs in security- very low pay but they always emphasize how important security is!
I know armed guards working with payroll that are barely making $11 an hour with their life on the line.
They just don't pay in relation to the high importance they proclaim.
