I work for the State of Alaska, at one time people stood in large lines to work here, not anymore.http://local71.com/ERP/job_listings.htm
5 weeks paid vacation to start
37.5 hours per week
The last few weeks this list has only grown.
driver / operators, mechainics, buildings maintenance, corrections
jobs go to Alaskans, have a skill, show up with an AK drivers licence, demonstrate some skill, get a job, some even in town.
I think the union gets 25 dollars to put you on the list.
