Not going to happen. Agencies have very strict rules about this and the employee will end up blacklisted and the employer will be sued.

You've got a "useless" liberal arts degree from a third tier at best college and a mottled work history which includes terminations for cause. You've got a bad attitude and seem to be very lazy with a poor work ethic. And you are better because?

I'm going to say this one more time. It WAS in your field. Your field is SOCIAL SERVICES and it WAS a SOCIAL SERVICES position. Are you really that dense?

National DO NOT CALL Registry. Takes care of that problem. Oh, but then you might have to actually get a job.

You said that you treat weekdays between 10AM and 6PM as "working days" and concentrate on your job search. So was yesterday (just as an example) a holiday, a slow day at the office, or did you take a Personal day off?

Do you have any idea what the word "racist" means? Because of you did, you'd understand you can't be "racist" against "poor people."

If you think for one red hot minute that employment and temp agencies don't give weekly reports to U/E, you really need to stop and think again. They can and do find out that you've refused work.
