    I don't know where you live, but if your city has affordable housing requirements, write to the mayor and tell him how it's cutting into your work opportunity.

    Unemployed student. I'm thinking of possibly getting a job at a local aquarium store with a "help wanted" sign in the window.

    Then an aquarium job might not be bad.

    Employed, taking advantage of free job training at work for pretty much any Microsoft or other cert I want. I hope to use them to get a better job once things get better. But I am probably underemployed at this point.

    Construction has taken the hardest hit. I think unemployment in it is at 23% last I heard. Most employers are taking advantage of it by paying substand wages. Also illegal immigrants have flocked into construction because half of it involves the underground economy.

    I just met a 56 year old carpenter with a bad back who had changed his occupation to the junk business because it was not worth being a carpenter.

    I can't wait for the payback to those employers when the economy improves and they can't find any qualified mechanics.

    Re: Anonymous Poll on Employment or Lack Thereof

    Right now I am an unemployed student that is looking for work. Right now I am really hoping to find a pharmacy tech job somewhere. As of now I am studying biology (mainly cellular biology and genetics). I am thinking of going to pharmacy school when I graduate college, which is why I am looking for a pharmacy job.

    Pssssh, I have a secret for you. Do research. If you love cell biology classes you'll like it. Pharmacy is boring.
