The US government is still beating the drum to hire people for the census. It’s an obvious choice to target UI benefit recipients. But is taking a job with the census your best career decision?
Think about it?
Census pays approx. $17 an hour. Or $35,000 a year. So you’re pay after taxes is $510 a week or $1,020 every two weeks.
What if your unemployment is around $400 a week? Your previous job paid tons of money and your unemployment is the highest you can receive.
Well if you leave the job with the census & can’t find a job, your unemployment will be based upon your last position; the census…
Then suddenly your payment drops to $275 a week. What do you do?
This is all hypothetical but it’s something to think about. So if you’re looking at a job with the census, remember, it is only temporary and you need still look for a job.
Now what do you think?
If offered, would you take a job with the census?
