Burger flippers to get $6000 bonus. N.O. NEEDS workers.

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana Burger King is offering a $6,000 signing bonus to anyone who agrees to work for a year at one of its New Orleans outlets. Rally's has nearly doubled the pay for its restaurant workers to $10 an hour.

On any given day, contractors and business owners pass out fliers in downtown New Orleans promising $17 to $20 an hour plus benefits for people willing to swing a sledgehammer or cart away stinking debris from flood-devastated homes and businesses. Canal Street, once a crowded boulevard of commerce, now resembles a sparsely populated open-air job fair.

The high wages are due to the severe housing shortage. No housing, no workers. Blageur learns something new every day.

Hello there, I was recently doing a search through blogs for the keyphrase make money at home free. I happened to come across yours even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I figured I wouldn't mind contributing to your blog by commenting it. I've been quite busy to work on my blog lately but I am interested in topics being generally related to what I search for. I know you may not think this is an appropriate post to your blog, however I would just like to compliment you on your blog and I wish you well in future endeavors with it,

Sincerely,

Mark
