    To this day, even with close to 40 years in carpentry, I tell clients that if they're not happy at the end of the week then don't pay me. You'd be surprised at the doors that'll open.
    Nope. Absolutely never. People are frivolous. 99% of the customers love me to death. But, I'm not about to eat labor because someone is an 1% $#@!.

    Best tip for online applications:

    Every single time, tailor your resume using the same words and phrases they do in the job description and requirements. Use the exact same words.

    The first pass through a pile of 300-500 online applications is automated... The software searches for keywords that match what they are looking for. If your resume/application does not contain them, you don't make the first cut.

    They pare it down to 20-30 and then a human looks them over.

    If you have submitted 100 online applications already, go back and resubmit the best ones using a different email address (create a gmail account) and tailor your resume as mentioned above.
    1. Don't lie.
    2. Don't cheat.
    3. Don't steal.
    4. Don't kill.
    5. Don't commit adultery.
    6. Don't covet what your neighbor has, especially his wife.
    7. Honor your father and mother.
    8. Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy.
    9. Don’t use your Higher Power's name in vain, or anyone else's.
    10. Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

    Good advise. Hit up Manpower and Kelly for starters. That's a great way to get a foot in the door at a good company, if you take the right job.

    Plasma pays for first time donors as well (I've seen $250-400 for first five donations---2.5 weeks). Might make you a little weak for other endeavors but it isn't too bad if you are healthy.

    If you have a car and show up to temp agencies an hour before they open, you get picked first and they pay you gas for the people you take with you (probably your best chance for a quick thousand if you can get paid daily or weekly).

    Scrapping used to pay and is probably paying now again... though I haven't kept up with prices. If you have a car, or preferably a truck, checking open top dumpsters and driving neighborhoods (especially on large item pickup day) is a good way to get extra money. Construction sites often throw away a bit of wiring that when skinned can make a little bit, or old material, or who knows (check one, nothing, check the next one and a good day). There is a bit of money to be made if you know metals (simply non-magnetic metals have higher desirability) and what you are looking for/how it has to be prepped. Obviously don't steal people's $#@! and understand the difference between taking something from a general refuse open top (which is going to the dump) and a metal open top (which is going to the scrapyard) as well as 'No Trespassing' signage and local stipulations.

    What part of Florida are you in?
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    I would suggest working cold storage. Where I work they will hire anyone (I work there). The hourly rate isn't that high, but during the busy season which is most of the year we make a lot of money because of overtime.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Apply online for jobs in hospitality and tourism. They hire lots of seasonal people that can turn into full time work. If you can pass a background check and drug test, you’re golden.

    With no disrespect intended, the go fund me is going no where. People stand on street corners with signs and collect money with every red light. Other people pick up cans. I suspect you are above that. I see people doing caricatures for a fee. I see people strumming a guitar with an open case for donations. Maybe Danke had a good point. Why not get yourself a very nice scratch pad and a stool and write poetry for sweethearts for donations? I would bet that if you were in the correct location, people would pay for your poems and even seek you out!

    Well if an honest hard work doesn't work, I would find a good street corner and go the sign route. I see people making several dollars every light change.

    There looks to be a lot of low-skill jobs available. I would go in person after filing out any online app and just be persistent.

    Do you have an inability to get to a job? Is transportation and/or lack of DL limiting it? I would say that after getting through this rough patch, resolving the technicality of “suspension” on your license would be a next step. I have an employee that had a suspended license for two years bc he didn’t pay off tickets/fines/etc. he finally got around to it and now he’s saving money from having his wife take him to work and back each day.

    You’ll get through this, just be persistent, sincere and don’t take no for an answer!
