Pocatello, ID

#1 Apr 4, 2011
I don't know it I'm the only one with this issue with pocatello and idaho as a whole as far as the finding employment. I'm sure that it's a common issue with many people in this community. Well I'm not from the local area, but I've lived here on and off from 2006. I've worked at the sweatshops (call centers) in the local area and had to go back to working seasonal to make a living due to no luck with a job search. Well I've decided to stop wasting my time here and got a job in north dakota; I'm leaving in a couple of days and I'm happy to leave. My question is simple; what the hell do people in this town do to make a living? I know that this is a poor community, but people still have to pay rent here right? I know many people here live on assistance/SSI/child support or LDS church payments, but some people here still work right? I mean I've lived in many places in my time, but I've never lived in an area that was like this really. It's a shame really; I liked this town but reality has to come for all of us. I just hope that some of the people will wake up soon; the government won't be there forever to support this community; children or children. I have to go make a living and it was nice living here supporting a large percentage of this population with my tax dollars. By the way if you want a change start teacher lay-offs ASAP. You don't need to pay a teacher 40K a year to be a babysitter in this community. You can do the same with a internet connection and an minimum wage intern. It will save you money pocatello.
