I don't see why there would be a difference between a married guy or single guy, besides if the owner feels bad for him.
I'd say 15 for a no experience or no brain job, 18(+) for experienced person who knows what he's doing.
I'm not who you think I am.

There's no lack of kids in Lakewood for these jobs, people usually would hire a married guy just because they expect him to be more reliable, dependable and trustworthy. So chances are he'll be getting hired for a "higher paying" job.

If they are looking for a warehouse manager, going rates can be starting 40k and going up to 75k for 0-3 years experience. Then it can get higher based on size of the operation and experience

None wants a "kid" to make sure 25 umpalumpas are doing their jobs, getting orders out on time, and not stealing half the inventory and the time.

It is very simple. The whole thing is for a year. VZW profits off people buying the new 4g phones and has little downside. Towers outside Lakewood will break over time as well. Why WOULD they fix them.
Verizon profits more off people remaining loyal to Verizon, not switching to Sprint and AT&T, like many in Lakewood have recently done. The only reason I have Verizon is because their coverage is better, but their coverage is now terrible.. I'm considering switching

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Can anyone recommend a good tailor who could turn a regular suit into a slim fit?

Cost isn't really a concern.
