The U.S. Census Bureau is looking to hire 47,000 people in Wisconsin next year. The jobs pay between 11 and 15 dollars an hour and involve going door-to-door to interview people who don’t respond to a questionnaire that has to be mailed back by April first of next year. Census Spokesman Steve Laue says they are setting up local offices throughout the state and they’ll start hiring around the first of the year.
Laue says people can find where the local offices are located on-line. He says the local offices will open around the first of the year. The temporary employees will work primarily during the evening and on weekends, in their own communities.
