It doesn't pay terribly well (but then what retail job does). The hourly rate is around minimum wage, and I asked for only about 30 hours a week (mostly to leave enough time for real job hunting), so I won't exactly be getting rich here. But it will help make up some of the cash gap. T is a little dubious about the whole exercise. He pointed out that I was making more doing nothing when I was still getting unemployment. While this is true, the unemployment ran out in October, so that well is dry. If I wanted more money, I'll have to go earn it. Also, I think I need to get back in the habit of working. Maybe part-time employment will ease me back into it.
I start training tomorrow, and then we'll see.
