I started with a criminal record for petty narcotics pos and a 'computer tresspassing' record guaranteeing me unemployment almost everywhere except manual labor. I was also living in a SRO in the worst area you can ever imagine, had no money, huge debt and couldn't even finish university so washed out in the second year due to poverty.


Any job will do. Some shitty manual labor position is great because then you also get some activity in so you aren't a fat bastard.

Easy jobs to get are landscaping (usually pays under the table cash), construction clean up, warehouse, or whatever you can find on your local Craigslist 'gigs' section. Alternatively there's the dreaded nightshift tech support. Look around for these on CL, or move to somewhere in your country where the jobs are. In Canada this means terribad mining and oilfiend work but it pays like $40/hr and there's nothing else to do up there, perfect for studying.

For me, I got a job at the post office and delivered mail, which meant I got off early and had lot's of time for school. Also consider institutions that will pay you to learn a trade, such as telephone companies and whatever else.

I don't want to do fucking computer science shit. I don't want to do fucking programming. There's got to be another way. I'm tired of the fucking "programmers make big bux d00d!" meme.

The one thing I haven't seen discussed is Transportation!

For those of us who have a job or are looking, transportation is very important!

It is also important that it is cheap and reliable, not often two things that go well together!

Bikes are OK but if you live in an area where it's a minimum if 10 miles to any place that has work it isn't much help!

Plus most cheap cars don't get great gas mileage (Mine costs almost 120-200 a month in gas) AND you car is often a dead giveaway that you are a poor person!

What suggestions do allz you poor people have regarding cheap and reliable transportation?

In my opinion, these the best cars on a budget from an American perspective.


1991-2002 Saturn S Series: Base models routinely get over 35 MPG. DOHC models are more powerful but you shave off about 5-10 MPG with the extra power. Available in sedan, wagon, or coupe styles.

1992-2005 Chevrolet Cavalier & Pontiac Sunbird/Sunfire: Cockroaches of the road, most examples are beat to shit & rusty but they get you from point A to point B. Available in sedan, wagon, coupe, or convertible variants.

Honorable Mention:
1982-1996 Buick Century & Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera:
Cheap, low mileage, mint condition examples are easy to find due to their target demographic consisting of senior citizens that only drive them to church on Sundays. Average MPG, but nothing can beat the sensation of driving a couch on wheels. Available in sedan, coupe, and wagon variants.

1985-2002 Ford Escort & Mercury Tracer/Lynx:

You could also head to the discount cigarette and buy a bunch of 20 per pack "cigars" and resell them for 4 or 5 bucks to know nothings.

I live in Texas so I don't know if these stores exist in your area, I found mine in a realllllly poor area.

go into the grocery store or anywhere where there is produce that gives bags with the little wire tristies. Always double bag your stuff and take two twisties. Sneak a few in your pocket and in no time you could sell the twisties at the metal yard by the pound, or on ebay. Also, take huge wads of toilet paper from public restrooms.

Hey /jew/,

How the fuck do I get a new job? I'm underpaid ($13/hr for $15/hr work) by a company that doesn't allow vertical movement. I have to out up with a manager whose usual response is "I don't care". At this point, this job isn't worth it anymore.

How do I get a new job? Every time I check craigslist, I find ads like "MAKE $3000 A WEEK DRIVING FOR UBER" or ads looking for part-time.

So, how do I find a job where I make more and keep the same level of benefits?

My local USPS is hiring, I didn't think they paid that well. I have a year or so of warehouse experience, too. I'll drop an application there.

Hopefully my being a 20 year old white male in good shape won't fuck me.

>Letter carriers for USPS require a test that is heavily bias towards women, minorities and former military.

There is a high-speed reading and memory test to separate the retards to carrier positions and the morons to clerks but that is about it. Lot of former military people though, but I think that's because pension savings and what-not carry over and they get a head start on retirement benefits.

Your young, companies are not going to give a fuck. A lot of people are looking for jobs. Make yourself stand out. Even if you work harder then others, you can still get fucked over by having the company putting you where they need a hardworker and have your pay set to other fuck offs that dont do shit.

I'm a student with an income of 540E/month.

I already work and would like no know what is the optimal use of, say, 500E / month with the intention of making more money.

I do not have expenses and politics (relations and influence trafficking) are another topic.

I can sell a lot of stuff I have and probably change my job to a more lucrative one, but since I now have a steady income I bet there's something I can do with it.

I'm not looking for something that requires constant, physical attention like buying/selling objects, but I guess I could try with silver.

SHould I invest? Should I save and study for something that will give me money?

It sounds like you've got the entirely wrong mindset to at this point, but I might be reading too much into the way you phrased your post. Nothing will ever give you money, you have to put forth effort of some kind. Also the amount you get is equal to the amount of time, effort and skill you spend/put into it, but effort is far more important than time in most cases and skill trumps the other two by a fair sight. That applies to something as simple as selling an item as well.

Pro-tip. If you need a super cheap music player buy a used android tracfone on ebay.

The audio quality via headphones sucks, but if you link it up via bluetooth it'll sound good. (I do this in my car)

I'd also recommend using the app poweramp, but make sure you go into the settings and enable max audio thread priority.

I was about to waste $50 on a Fiio m3 until I discovered my old tracfone would work great.

You got it backwards, as the bacteria multiplies it causes the can to bloat. Now if the can was dented and pierced/rusted then yeah, it's best to avoid it.

craigslist is not some magical place to get a good bike, maybe every once in a while, but most people are selling 88 dollar walmart bikes used and beaten for 50 dollars on craigslist. Its hardly worth selling this shit, and the bikes they sell are usually near-worthless in reality.

Also, I have some 600 dollar bike from years of yore, and the thing is just as shit as some cheapo bike to a casual biker like me.

here's the deal, you either pay for what a bike is worth (you do research it's new, and good) you get a stolen bike (fuck you), or you get a shit bike from walmart and kill yourself when the crank arm falls off your bike and you crash into a parked car because a retard asshole didn't put it together correctly.

you really cannot just decide that you want something cheap and expect quality. Compared to the price of a car, 1k is nothing for a quality bike and you will get a quality bike for that price. fucking save up you bitch. this is not an area where you can be #jew and think that it will end up all ok in the end, you'll either get something that isn't fit for you, it isn't built correctly, it is built with shit components and you'll end up spending the bikes cost in replacement parts, or you'll crash and never bike again.

fuck, these fucking people and their cheap bikes.
