Growing up on Long Island, I know many friends parents who did not own their own business but worked a second job at nights and on the weekends because they were paying for their children’s college tuition or just needed more income to pay the bills.

Do you have a second job that you go to at nights and on the weekends?

What’s your primary profession and what is your second job?

Most people are grateful to have one job these days.

By day, I am a training instructor for a local company. I train electricians, mechanics and such on equipment and federal workplace compliance. 2-3 nights a week I am a teacher for a technical school. I teach electrical courses there.

My wife stays home, not by choice, she's bored, but also has recurring medical issues. I need the second job, hoping its somewhat temporary.

The great thing about the medical field someone almost always needs you. Durning the week in a hospital 9-7 then every other weekend at an east end hospital overnights.

Are you fully unemployed and looking for a job at the momment? I understand times are hard and many people are out of work and looking for a primary source of income.

That aside I think someone unemployed and looking for one single job would be reviewing much different jobs than someone looking for secondary income.

If I were out of work and needed to support a family I wouldn't be looking to washing dishes as my primary source of income. As it probably wouldn't cover all my bills and expenses. On the other hand someone making a normal salary could be looking to wash dishes in the evenings to subsidize their meager primary salary.

They may need you but can they pay you? One day, if this economic deterioration keeps up, you may get paid in IOU's, chickens or garden vegetables. How many acorn squash will you accept?

A bushel per person.

Yeah I know, this new HC issue is a big deal. Less money for more cases, never a good combo. It depends on the body part. Brains would be less than an abdomen/pelvis. I'd take some chickens I think someone in Smithtown had a few.

When I was working a day-gig, I always freelanced on the side. Same stuff--writing and editing.

However, now that I'm freelancing full-time, I wouldn't mind a part-time job doing something completely different just to get out of the coop a couple of days or nights a week and be among the living.
