This thread has certainly taken off.
Count, try private schools for teaching jobs. They usually have more practical requirements, rather than teachers union education degree requirements. You can come to NOLA and get any kind of job you can handle. This is a gold rush town for people who want to work (sadly in criminal as well as legal enterprises).
South of the Border illegals are wearing thin here. We were guardedly glad to have their help in rebuilding and many have been great additions to our construction craft community, but the non-working elements have begun to come in, too. Still, the illegals are vics, more than perps of crime in NOLA. Everyone knows they get paid in cash on Friday and they don’t want legal trouble–very little assembly required. Gummint can’t afford to protect them or pursue them, so how’re they gonna handle all the red tape and monitoring required under the Open Sphincters Bill–simple, they can’t and won’t.]]>
