  •  Have you looked at jobs with the City/Counties? (4+ / 0-)

    There's a lot of work you can do with them and gain trade skills. No shame in a 30-year career in waste management with a pension afterwards!

    •  I suspect it varies from place to place... (3+ / 0-)

      ...but here in New Jersey I doubt anyone gets a job with local government without owing a bunch of people favors.  It's not a great environment for a political idealist.

      is my CAFO inspector for my farm.

      I am sure he doesn't make much, and I know he has a lot of furlough days now.

      But he knows what it takes to keep our waters clean, and how to keep my farm clean, and how to manage our waste so it is not a problem, but a benefit.

      He taught me so much, and now I am a proud Leftie CAFO licensee, because even though I am a small, grass-fed, all natural farm, he has made sure I know how to make sure my farm is sustainable and does not pollute my community.

      Unlike many of my neighborhood farmers who are not CAFO and pile their manure wherever.
