Feds Hire Census Workers, 1.2 Million!

As the economy continues to struggle and unemployment hovers in the double digit raise, the government is about to provide a big boost as the Feds hire over a million new census workers for the upcoming census.

The census, which seeks establish precise counts of the US population, happens only once every ten years, so it's a rare opportunity that's taken very seriously. Many of the jobs offered will rin for a couple of months, knocking on doors to find people who haven't filled out the census forms. In some parts of the country there can be some risk to this, as we saw with the one census worker found killed recently, but this does not happen often and it's important work that needs to be done, so hopefully people will step up.

Feds Hire Census Workers, 1.2 Million!

A once-in-a-decade job opportunity is just around the corner for jobless Americans who are struggling through the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. Across the country, the 2010 census is ramping up efforts to hire 1.2 million temporary workers for the decennial head count, which begins in March. Most of the jobs, about 700,000, will require knocking on doors for six to 10 weeks from May to July to find people who didn't mail in their census questionnaires....

Why doesn't the census form require you to identify yourself as a citisen of the USA? Is the government using these forms to determine how many representives your state is allowed? If so how do they get rid of the forms filled out by illegal immigrants?

It is obvious that you are not a citizen since you can't spell it.

Hey Dawn Wilson Oliver,

Obviously the person that wrote the article for the census is not a citizen either. In the article it says..."Many of the jobs offered will rin for a couple of months,"....shouldn't that be "run"????....the proof reader for the government is probably an illegal too.

Personally I think we should kick them all out. It's so pathetic that the citizens of the United States have been made to feel guilty about the laws of the land and enforcing them. If a person agrees with a law that says our national language is english....he/she becomes a racist. Why is it that a few get to run the whole country? The louder you bitch about being oppressed or discriminated against the more favors and rights you get. My father came to this country speaking italain at the age of 8. When he died he could read, write, punctuate, and enunciate the english lanuage better than some professors I know.

What a stupid statement to make because someone misspelled a word. You're probably one of those perfect liberal whiners right??

Hey Dawn Wilson Oliver!!

I mispelled "Italian" in the last post I made.

I better find a new country now! I'm probably not a citizen of the USA....right??

Actually, and sad to say, I expect all of those people who misspelled are American citizens!

I've been looking through job, want ads that are posted on Craigslist for the last year or so, and have been amazed at how common the flagrant misspelling of even every day words is.
I'm afraid that sadly that's the result of what has happened to the education that most people now receive in the U.S.

About the Illegal Alien problem in the USA well the Government will never fix it they created the problem. Let us legal citizens and Natual born Americans take care of it. Give the Illegals 90 days to get back across the border then we citizens start enforcing the get legal or be killed, because if we gather them up put them in jail it will cost us tax payers to feed and house them plus there free Medical Care and a new TV that is broadcasted in several languages. Now I will be waiting on a knock on my door from the FEDS. Our Politicians won't say anything because everyone of them is afraid to.
