Who doesn't right now. The government is hiring at decent wages for work on the 2010 Census.
In the Harris County / Houston area the pay is $17.75, not bad if you can get it.
Simply call this number (1-866-861-2010) to set up an appointment. I did.
They were very nice and I got an appointment a few days later. There is a 30 minute test, and some paperwork to fill out, total time about 2 hours. If there is work they could call you anytime.
