Okay I live in a small town, rural area in Kentucky. I have experience in alot of different fields, but the only thing available here and the surrounding counties is minumum wage type jobs, fast food, convenience marts, ect... I am employeed at a sewing factory, well until tomorrow. I sew 7 straps onto a rucksack at $6.20 an hour. Doing the same thing over and over is getting to me mentally, my nerves are wrecked. I am 41 Years old and just want a job I can call home. Even if it is at minimum wage, just as long as I can pay my bills. I am so nervous about finding another job, I have applied everywhere and I am suppose to start a new job (only part-time) though at an Exxon tomorrow. Please God help me find a job so I can pay my bills. All I can say about quitting my present job is that I have degenerative disk disease that causes me great pain by sitting in the same spot for 8.75 hours a day. I have no choice. I am really scared. But even if I did not have the physical pain the mental pain is bad enough, i just can't do it anymore. I wish I could find a way to make money on the internet from home. I have to have at least $240.00 a week to make it. Any Ideas?

Would you be able to work from home on your computer? Look into these 2 websites. (They are not referral links) www.liveops.com & www.alpineaccess.com & let me know how it goes. I care.

I will pray for you! I quit my job 5 months ago because they were trying to push me out. I was having to work late nights or early mornings to train people in another country to do my job. I couldnt handle those hours on top of my regular hours and the fact that they were trying to get me out. I have been out of a job since then and now I am getting scared. Will I ever find a job before I lose my home? What about posting something on Craigslist to sew things for people (as a side job to bring in extra money)?
