If you're out of work or need more money than what you're currently making, you have many options out there to choose from.

Employers all over are looking to fill many empty spots in their rosters. Jobs from being a machinist (on-the-job training),  Highway Maintenance worker, truck driver, dental lab techs, emergency service dispatcher, laborers for construction and cement, etc. The list goes on and on...

Other options that may require, at least a year or 2 of community college or at least an internship would be welders, plumbers, mechanics, and other blue-collar jobs. These jobs are mainly available because the retirees that have moved on or are soon to be retired, leave tons of available employment with high wages because there aren't enough of the younger generation willing to do the more physical, dirty jobs.

Time to get working and making a comfortable living with less debt and more opportunities!
