I'm trying to find the right day for people to see the Daily Kos Work Bank. This is my first Saturday try. The targets are both people in need of work and people who need work done.

There is also a new group, Daily Kos Work Bank. Everybody is welcome join, those with work, and those looking for work. And now, on with the show. For my part, this is a repeat of the last few Work Bank Diaries. The real key is the comments, where people who need work done can get together with people who need work.

What is the difference between work and a job? A job is regular. A job has a paycheck, benefits, a place you go every day, perhaps even people you like and a career you love. Work, though, work just pays some bills. It buys a meal or two, helps pay the rent. It's independent contracting, another way of saying "I've just got this one little thing I need done - I can't hire you full time." So ...

I've just got this one little thing I need done - I can't hire you full time.

Seriously. I do. And I bet a lot of other people here do, too. People with websites that need redesign or debugging, people with brick-and-mortar or on-line stores and not enough customers, writers in need of editors, and more, are all people who need people, even if just for a little while.

I propose a Daily Kos Work Bank. I'd truly love to see a Daily Kos Job Bank, but that's harder. Jobs require interviews, resumes, references. Work just requires qualifications and a willingness to get the task done.

I'll start. As some of you know, I run a wine magazine in my spare time, when I'm not practicing law or taking care of the family along with my wonderful wife. I also run an associated Ad Network of wine websites. We're working on a dedicated campaign for wine stores that hold free tastings. You can see the program HERE. We're looking for salespeople willing to cold call wine stores to pitch the ads. It's commission-based, $25/sale. If you're interested, email me.

Do you have work for people? Can you help a fellow Kossack buy a meal, pay the rent, turn on the phone? Post it in the comments. If we get a hot response, maybe we can convince the Big Orange Powers That Be to make it a regular post.

Daily Kos Work Bank - Help Wanted

Reposted from Palate Press: The online wine magazine by dhonig Editor's Note: Published to Daily Kos Work Bank. -- dhonig

(This is the second posting of what I hope will be a weekly Work Bank, created to help Kossacks help Kossacks, and get help when they need it. To see the original diary, as well as some people who need help and who need work, go HERE. Also, I created a Daily Kos Work Bank group for people to find people. If you want to join, just let me know in the comments.)

Not "Job Bank," but "Work Bank."

Did you read If I don't get a Job this week, I'm homeless in June, by Jim P? I did. It was just the latest in a series of diaries from people suffering through today's economy.

It is happening to a lot of people who come to Daily Kos. It is happening all over the country. It's happening to salespeople, computer programmers, graphic artists, computer engineers, and people with expertise in business, marketing, web design, accounting, finance, and much more.

But it's not happening to everybody. And some of us, some of those fortunate enough not to be hit with the economic tsunami, might be able to help with work, even if not a full-time (or even part-time) job.
