Get a Job – 2009 Empowerment Job Coaching Tour

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

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 '˜em out at the Embarcadero YMCA.

Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder (Editor, San Francisco)

Stephen's early years were spent in a boxcar overlooking downtown Los Angeles. From there he moved around the state with his family before settling under the warm blanket of smog that covers suburban Southern California. Moving around led to his inability to stay in one place for very long, but San Francisco has been reeling him back in with its siren song since 1999.
By trade he pours booze, but likes to think he can write and does so occasionally for the SF Bay Guardian, Bold Italic and 7x7. He also likes to enjoy time spent in old eateries, bars and businesses that, by most standards, would have been condemned a long time ago.
