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.
