I am also very close with several CFPUA employees. I can assure you that quite a few employees got a huge increase in pay when they switched from the city to CFPUA (yes, the $8,000 was an actual truth).
As far as my son, sure there are jobs out there.....and HUNDREDS of applicants because of the economy and people being laid off, as well as temp employees trying to get seasonal jobs right now. He's at the ESC twice a week, and he is applying every other day on line on the computer (as you know, companies don't want walk-ins now; they want everything done on line). I've also networked at my own job, trying to find something for him, but there's a hiring freeze. He is not drawing unemployment, food stamps, or welfare, and I'm paying for ALL of his support. But I guess you're so used to seeing the bad side of people everyday trying to milk taxpayers for everything they're worth at Social Services, that you just assume the worst of everybody. You've been there too long.
