Anybody that is a Diabetic Type 2 can get Metformin and other medication at Giant Eagle for free 90 day supply. Just need a doctor"s prescription. That helps, especially if you have no insurance. It saves me $!0 with insurance every 90 days.

DesperateInRI (Admin) wrote: I am trying to compile a list for help for the unemployed! Thank you so much for adding this!

If anyone else knows of any other resourses, please post! I remember sunshinemary had a link for the AARP program she works for. It would be great to add that here also.

Keep the ideas coming, we all know we need all the help we can get right now!

Hey, Desperate, it's me, the prairie wolf formerly known as Sunshinemary. I'm taking a break from the forums right now, but it's good to see you guys here.

Here's the link for that AARP Worksearch Program:

http://www.aarpworksearch.org/Pages/Locations.aspx

For the newbies, here's the Reader's Digest version:

Unfortunately this program is for folks 55 and up. The pay is federal minimum wage, funded by AARP and Department of Labor. Depending on which state you live in you may work from 20 to 30 hours per week, at a library, food pantry or a non-profit organization. That truly sucks, but if you're an exhaustee it's some money coming in and it's a way to plug up employment gaps. You might get training on computer software like I did.

A word of warning: we all know these employers out here have the upper hand. If you get in this program some of them will try to hoodwink you into thinking that they will hire you. Technically you are a free worker, and they will dangle the carrot of possible employment and try to use you as much as they can. Some of these idiots will try to wheedle you to work extra hours for them for free. Don't fall for that. You are restricted to 20 hours a week. If the boss wants more hours, then he or she had better start talking about hiring you out of the program. Otherwise they should let you work your 20 hours and make other arrangements for office help after you're gone for the day. If you do run into an employer like that, and they become insistent about you donating free time to them, it is your right to call the Worksearch office and request a transfer to another assignment.

Been there, done that.

Keep in mind that permanent employees get weird when temps show up. Some of them think temps or volunteers are pack mules or playthings. I temped for five years before the Great Recession hit, and it's the same out here now as it was then. You don't have to take any crap from these people. Yeah, I said it.

One good thing is it's easy enough to start working in the program. As long as you don't show up drunk and half naked for the interview you will get the assignment. Assignments last for one year. Worksearch is supposed to help people find employment. If for any reason you do not find full-time work during that time, AARP will transfer you to another assignment after the year is up, so it's not like you will be dropped from the program for that.

Yes, folks, that WAS the Reader's Digest version.

I realize that this program is not gonna help everyone, unless you were fortunate enough to get subsidized housing like I did, but it beats a blank.

Ya'll have a good evening. I am outta here.
