Living & Working in Great Places
Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!
I'm just about finished with my winter job. I had decided to stay near home this winter for a couple of reasons. I've been camping in my sister's basement, throwing a bit of money for rent. I also managed to beat the seasonal hiring bias and picked up a job at a local Premier Best Western.
First thing I noticed on my return....wages in the service industry have dropped locally. From what I could determine this happened sometime near the beginning of the recession.
Second thing...rents have increased quite a bit.
Third...I had to choose one of the coldest winters on record to return home...and for Wisconsin, that's some serious cold.
There's a comparatively large public library in this area, and I have been spent a lot of time here. I also had a membership at the local Y.
I have a real strong case short-termitis. Looking forward to a few days in Las Vegas before my summer begins. I want some heat before heading up to Alaska.
I have also watched the staff slideshow often from last year. By the way, it's here:
Let's see: 10 days left of work, 15 days left in Oshkosh, 19 days until Las Vegas (visiting my mom for a couple of days first), 22 days until Anchorage, 24 days until Cooper Landing and move in, 25 days until summer work
