One thing that is nice about our current economic slump is that, whereas during the Great Depression if you were out of work you pretty much had the option of riding the rails and getting shot for stealing apples, nowadays you can cash in your workforce chips and go back to school. Thanks F.D.R.!
Now mind you, this works with varying success when it comes to getting free dough from the feds, or in the case of California, actually getting back into school in the first place.
Fear not, The Empowerment Tour wants to send you back to school and get you job, and, no, its not a degree in television/ gun repair offered by Sally Struthers.
Check â€˜em out at the Embarcadero YMCA.
