All those people cleaning up the shore lines are getting paid, or are they volunteers?

there's a company offering transportation to MS, and paying $1000 a week, with paid lodging while you're there. saw it on another question
I wonder if that will end up like the post-Katrina jobs. Tons of guys around here went and took jobs paying people to tow FEMA trailers down to the gulf coast. Most of them ended up losing money in the deal, some even lost their homes. The money was there, but only if you met a nearly impossible set of goals and basically never stopped to sleep or use a bathroom. A lot of them couldn't even get enough to cover their gas money. I hope that's not more scamming contractors trying to cash in on gov't funds.

Yes. Temporary ones. Although as of right now small boats and fisherman ARE being paid large sums to skim BUT the LARGE companies are now starting to snap up the contracts QUICKLY and that is going to leave the little guy screwed! Yes there ARE jobs but they are temporary at best.
