So if you are a country bumpkin, you may not benefit much from the economic recovery


If an individual wants to better themselves to do x, y and z they may need to make sacrifices until they are in a better place. Or those individuals will continue to complain about the same problems and have the same issues. I've worked with folks from other countries and states who put their life on hold to make that money and provide a better living for their families. Folks living in hotels, sleeping in their car until their first paycheck or rooming together. 2019 crazy times, you need to be a go gettah instead of sitting on an internet forum complaining about how bad temp jobs are while the other folks who are working them jobs are making their $. There are jobs out there for folks who are dealing with injuries, may be a little harder to get but sitting and complaining about them isn't the answer. jmo,imho

You're probably right, TDHP. I still like coonman's threads.

I don't believe it's about being right, I think it's more about doing what is necessary if the individual is in a bad spot. If it's broke, fix it.

Iowa has had the lowest unemployment rate in the country recently. No big cities here and "help wanted" signs everywhere. Good luck, coonman-there has got to be something out there for you.

Iowa has nearlly 2/rds of its population living in urban areas. ( check the quick facts link below). Sure there are help wanted adds everywhere but from 2000 on over 700 of Iowa's small rural communities have lost population while IA gained 4.1% The rural counties are losing population. IA is not the only rural or ag based state with the migration from rural to urban as that is where the job growth is and that is where the younger working age people are and are moving too.

I suppose it varies from region to region, but I don't think there is a place in MN that doesn't have employers that are hard up for decent help at the moment. If not a man can travel. It's been 20 years since I've worked within 3 hours of home. One does what one has to do.

Having worked with temp placement companies for several years with a cheap employer using 3 different ones,

I'm not impressed with the caliber of individuals they send to work, if you are using one you might wish to check your credibility at the door when going to a job site.

My experience with them proves to me that the people are lazy, uneducated, have no ambition to work and simply wish to spend the least amount of effort for the greatest amount of return, sadly some are worth giving a second chance, but when done so they fall back into the same hole.

Age has nothing to do with using a temp agency from what I have seen, young or old are of the same mold, these people just cannot hold a job for a myriad of reason's.

I am sorry you have to resort to using a temp agency for finding work, I hope you can find other employment some how without more trouble on your work record by using temp placement's for a employee record of work !

Kudos to Coonman220 for at least staying employed. There are unfortunately many more people in our country, who just take government handouts, like welfare, when they could be out earning their own keep. Not everybody has the same abilities or talents. I respect people who do the best they can, with what they were dealt in life, to take care of themselves. I have no respect for those who just choose to be a public burden.

Was like $75 plus more week , then make now at 2 pt jobs, they were supposed reopen, an didn't have make work search contacts for long time, that change. Unemployment run out, lot places or factory's, temp agencies do all there hiring, from what I see. The temps are made do lot more work an tooken unfair advantage of , compared to full time help , at least my case. I had interview thurs at another temp agency , about a 3rd pt job, not many more hrs, they hire temps at factories. Because chesp labor, the lady at temp place other day, was ask about my limp, I told her I had flare-up , was work African American at my press operater morning job, an as usual, I got stuck with hard job, an the way I put parts in out press. Really aggravated my knee problem, this african American was full time, had easy job an just screw around lot, hung out bathroom, have notice how they never seem to carry pens for paperwork, an bum mine, this ridiculous, I think they use them to poke there crack pipes at nite an don't have pen for work

Yeah, a lot of us that occasionally work for temp agencies are not the typical submissive permanent employment material.

I've been self employed for most of my life. Why? Because, I'm not willing to take a bunch of crap from some moron that thinks he is better than me because he has endured the same crap from his employer for year after year.

Occasionally, when I have time to spare, I'm happy to jump in on a project for a limited period of time. When I do, I expect top dollar as a wage, because I am already taking care of myself for everything that might be considered a benefit. Obviously, benefits of any sort are non-existent or, at least extremely rare for temp jobs.

So, Gritguy, if we ever meet up, just enjoy short term dedication, attention to detail, and technical expertise, and don't expect to get your butt kissed.

T-Rex, I never expect anything but what I'm told from a person except what they tell me they can deliver, hence my reply to this thread.

Only experience with temp agencies can give you this, not all people are like this however most of them I have had the sad experience of dealing with from Temp agencies qualify for that statement !

I have also learned that those with the most reasons for being in temp agencies are usually the first to go, the second are those who tell you they can do anything because they are self supporting from all kinds of work they still cannot do !

the company i used to work for used temp agencies and did outside hiring -- probably 50% of the temps we brought in were eventually hired full time. thats what we were looking for -- I don't know how many of you have been involved in hiring for a company, but i can tell you that the quality of the applicants that are applying for a position will amaze you. Anything from phd to rehab and jail for a general trainable position. the good thiong with the temp agency is that if it is not working you can say "send me someone else tomorrow" the bad thing is that you know the temps are getting paid less than what you would consider that position to be worth.
