Dear PoP – Short Term Employment Options in Case of Shutdown?

“Dear PoP,

I, along with the rest of our neighborhood’s federal workers, am about to get furloughed – aka sent home without pay due to Congress not being able to settle on a new budget for the federal government. I am looking for full-time or part-time (anything, really) work in our neighborhood (Columbia Heights, Petworth, Mt. Pleasant, Admo) I could do temporarily until they decide to make us go back to work. The problem is that we don’t know how long we are going to be furloughed for – it could be a few days, could be a month – but regardless I need some sort of income starting next week while I’m not getting paid, otherwise I won’t be able to pay my rent on time. Does anyone know of a job that I could get quickly in our neighborhood which wouldn’t mind hiring me temporarily? Does anyone know of any place that is hiring?”
