Same thing happened to me …….
1990 I got hired with paid training for census work. Same year the homeless didn’t get counted. They couldn’t get any “homeless” to apply, I guess. By the way, homeless don’t vote, pay taxes, work or give a shit.
If today’s employment report showed some mixed results, thanks to a temporary boost in Census Bureau workers for the decennial survey, then the news out of Northern Virginia may spell a disappointing April. Yesterday, hundreds of Census workers hired to go door-to-door in group home settings like dorms and prisons got pink slips after getting paid for three days of training. It turned “Census Day” into a particularly ironic April Fool’s joke
