That is, could a young person with no experience find some ****ty part time job washing dishes pretty easily, or is it rather difficult compared to other parts of the country?

I wanna find a job washing dishes and work my way up to being a waiter which is harder than one might think for someone with no experience.

It would be hard finding a job like that at a nicer place, it's who you know and all that. Maybe fast food though. I don't know, anything is possible if you have the right connections or are in the right place at the right time... I wouldn't recommend it. If you have zero experience at anything why not at least check out a temp agency or something.

Not unless you're an illegal immigrant.

of course as we all know, washing dishes and waiting on tables is not such a hard ass laborious job at all!
