The Census Bureau is now hiring people. Each state pays a different wage, I know CA is $17.00 an hour. The job is temporary but can go as long as a year. In many states you'll be able to work in your own area. You do need to take a test.
complete waste of money.
if the government wants an accurate count of people all they need to do is look at Social Security Records and DMV records.
Sending people door to door is idiotic at best. People are not home, people do not answer their doors, and people look at this as an intrusion of their privacy.
these are useless jobs that burden the taxpayer more. they create nothing.
If the Government wants to create jobs they should create real jobs with some public benefit.
I completley agree, but, since the good ole government has put us in this nice little recession it could be a way to get a little money back from em ya know Census is kind of a cool job , if you never done it before , I suggest you give it a try , there is a store hous of knowledge to be gained there

I can't wait for the Obama Administration to spin this one. Did they say something about the economy recovering?

After all of the bailouts, TARP, etc., it seems that Obama and Congress are just spending $ that we don't have like drunken sailors. Shouldn't there be more focus on creating jobs, and improving the economy?
