Let's pretend that you are a stay at home mother that is interested in returning to the workforce. Let's say you've been out of the workforce for a few years and your skills have gotten a bit rusty. There's one or two things, or a combination thereof, you can do. I think there is a website somewhere that will contract people like you to work from home. Granted, they pay "Indian" wages. However that may appeal to you more than flipping burgers. And, it gives you a chance to enhance your resume. I tried to land a parttime job, and they balked at me only asking for what I made at my day job. I guess if I was to the point of maybe taking restaurant work to cover a few bills I might have negotiated down. As others have suggested, you could take a few classes. Now, many people try to rejoin the workforce when money get's real tight, and that's about the hardest time to start taking classes. "I feel your pain." There are some books available at http:\\store.midrange.com that may help you brush up on skills. They're also sold at another site that occasionally runs sales, and even offers some of them used.
