Instead of asking if anyone is hiring on here why don't you get off your ass and go to the businesses and inquire. Or if that's too much effort for you get a goddamn newspaper AND LOOK IN THE CLASSIFIEDS SECTION UNDER HELP WANTED. If you don't want to get off your lazy ass then check out Monster.com or input in your search engine available jobs Metropolis, IL or help wanted Metropolis, IL. Make some effort man!

I know what you could do to make some decent ass money. I bet if you went down to the corner of metropolis street and 10th street and worked that corner for a couple hours you could make a couple fellas pretty happy. I'm sure they would pay pretty well too.
P.S. Might want to dress slutty.

Well probably somewhere but if your wanting a good paying job you won't get one all the ratty republicans that hate the unions has pissed that away ! So now you want a good job how about part time and swing shifts no union12 dollars a hour. Sound good? Wait you have to know somebody first! And if that's not the case try going to collage for four years and thunk about that. Still no guarantees , gosh the good 24.00 jobs with benefits are leaving all those are union ,but the republican union haters want to make everyone from down south to come here and work for chump change!!! Good luck on a job..

Last week one of the Hucks employees told me that they are still looking for a General Manager. Don't know what your work experience is but Willy Jaks will probably be hiring soon unless they are bringing back everyone that worked there prior to the fire.

Think I seen a ad one of the local cemetery's was hiring a flower vase attendant must have 5 years vase handling experience , or worked under a journeyman vase handler as an apprentice for 8 years. Must have contacts, be able to run if needed ,prefer a 3 rd degree black belt ,and knowledge of judging crack head thieves from 300 feet away . Must know how to polish the shank while hold the base of the vase and experience with rim job is a plus . Hope you luck .

This is for "Lay it on the line" above:

The demise of private sector unions is neither a Republican nor a Democrat related phenomenon. The private sector union’s heyday was the 1950’s. They could pretty much ask for what they wanted and get it. The U.S. was basically the only large economy with intact infrastructure left standing and we supplied most of the world with goods.

That slowly began to change in the 1960’s as the countries devastated by WW II recovered. We had more and more competition with the world and, even though it lagged by more years than you would think, eventually that competition began to exert its presence on wages.

By the 1980’s, globalization and cheap transportation of goods from Japan, China, Taiwan, South Korea, etc. was in full swing. In order to compete, the costs of doing business had to go down in the U.S. This was accomplished via a combination of wage reduction and stagnation and also by automation which eliminated jobs.

Private sector unions are self-limiting. They can only take so much before the company closes its doors or goes into bankruptcy (refer to Hostess’s recent bankruptcy).

Right now, public sector unions have it better because they can live off of the taxpayer’s dime. They then spend their union dues to elect compliant politicians who will “negotiate”(i.e. give) them great benefits and pensions. This too is coming to and end as both state and federal government run out of taxpayer money and go into debt to support the unsustainable levels of union benefits. This can only go on for so long and then austerity begins and the public sector union’s powers are eviscerated.

You said:“…the republican union haters want to make everyone from down south to come here and work for chump change!!!” Take a look at the non-union auto workers located in the South. They don’t have the level of wages and benefits that the ever-shrinking UAW members have, but they have well-paying jobs with good solid benefits, 401K’s, etc. and they have job security because their companies are not being bled to death by union greed.

The heyday of unions is over. There are no longer sweatshops in the U.S. and the work conditions are nothing like they were in the early part of the 20th century. We have OSHA and all of the other alphabet soup government agencies. We will never go back to the times when forced 12 hour, 6 day a week, working conditions were imposed on workers.

The best we can do today is to have marketable skills that companies need, for which they will be willing to offer competitive wages. Workers with desirable skills also may need to move away from where they grew up to get a job. The days of working at the plant where your father and grandfather worked and retiring with a fat pension are over and the best we can do is to quit whining and deal with it as rational adults.
