Hey you, yes you reading right now, if you are an editor who likes my blog (or someone who knows an editor who should be reading this blog and hiring me to write for her/him) and would like a one-off, ongoing, or occasional piece(s) about long-term unemployment, underemployment, unemployment insurance, employment discrimination, constructive discharge & hostile work environments, corporate bullshit and bosses behaving badly, Medicaid mills & madness, Food Stamps (they are easy, considering…), class system(s), and all the related “stuff” I’ve blogged about here, please contact me at email@example.com. I’m a real writer with clips and, as a law school graduate, a little dangerous information. Thanks!
