I know that times are really tough out there. There are hardly jobs around. The one that pay good are very few and far between and very competitive. There are some that pay minimum wage of $7.25 an hour which in that case is not worth going to at all because you'll spend most of that on gas getting there. You can't even afford a car on that wage so forget having a car.
You will need to pay someone to get you there so maybe $20 a day depending on how far you live from there. Think about that almost 3 hours each day of work is just going to get you to work! It really is pathetic that things are the way they are.
If you are looking for a little bit of extra income on your own time from home there are a couple of options. If you are looking for an opportunity where you can work on your own time as little or as much as you want then I recommend 2 companies Humanatic and ClixSense. Humanatic is a call auditing website where you will listen to call recordings from home. You will be marking whether or not each recorded call met certain requirements. ClixSense is a site that pays you to take surveys, do small internet tasks, listen to the radio, and more!
Once you get comfortable with each of these websites you can do both of them at the same time. The amount of money you make depends on how much you do. There are people on Humanatic that make $30 or more a day. For ClixSense it is not hard to make over $10 a day. People also have made much more then that. ClixSense pays out on Monday and Friday. Humanatic pays out on Monday's or Tuesday's via PayPal.
These are both very legit opportunities that I have been with for 2+ years for each of them. I have been paid on time every time. To sign up for Humanatic visit www.humanatic.com and to sign up for ClixSense visit www.clixsense.com.
