The job market is brutal!


If someone had told me back when I was young Uncle Dave that the day would come when employers could require a background check and a drug test for a part-time minimum-wage job standing on the street holding a sign, I'd have said he was crazy. He would have been right. It's the country that's gone crazy.

  2. You think that's bad, the sign wavers are being replaced by machines! I saw one the other day alongside the road - a mechanical box with an arm holding a sign and waving it back and forth and twirling it as well.

  4. I wonder how long they last before someone tosses it in the bed of the truck and drives off.
