Washington DC.

There will always be federal government, defense, international organizations, lobbyists, think tanks, education, and the thousands of firms, private contractors, and corporations in the area whose services they rely on.

Go where there are lots of warehouse-type jobs. Ive worked for a few here in Chicagoland and there always seems to be those types of jobs available.

Are these Warehouse type jobs mostly in the Western suburbs of Chicagoland...or are they more north? i used to work as a Forklift Operator in the Recieving Dock for the Menard's Distribution Center in Plano, IL....when i was living with my cousins last year... and that's like all the work experiance i have though

they have a lot in southern suburbs such as university park, monee, manteno, etc. but a lot of these warehouses have shady characters/gang bangers/people who are miserable with their lives. warehouse jobs aren't for everyone, especially on the south side. those towns i mentioned have steady influx of "workers" form the south side of chicago and kankakee.

yeah same as here in Fresno...most of the People that work here in warehouses..are either Illegal Immigrants .. or there possibly mid age guys that are in gangs.... your exactly right about that.. not to seem racist or prejudice or anything.. but i couldn't get a job here in Fresno if i tried...which i desperately have.. because i don't speak Fluent spanish

all in all i'd probably be able to get hired out here in chicago... way way way easier then out here in California... man.. it's just rough out here finding a job...
