I know times are hard, but this one takes the cake. I didn't mean I GOT this job (I'm making almost this amount in two hours as a part time UPS driver helper for the next two weeks), just that I found this ad on dice.

This job is with 'manpower' temp agency, and pays the astounding $15 to $20 PER YEAR! If I worked at this job for 10 years and didn't eat or live anywhere in the meantime, I could almost afford the A+ test they require after 10 years.

WOW! Where do they get all this money? Probably from the federal bailout?

If I had this job, I could aspire to the income that Haitians make, $300 per year. There would be HOPE as things could only get better!

While I guess this is likely a mistake, I can imagine how much confidence this would give me in the manpower HR dept.
