Jobs around Junction?

So, things go from worse to worser, yes yes I invented that word. So, I find myself homeless today. Does anybody know of any kind of shops looking for help somewhere around Junction? I am pretty much using this as an excuse to pick up and get gone. I think after Derk's memorial I am going to take a couple of days and hit the streets in Junction looking for something. The only reason I like Junction, is because my college buddy lives there and is willing to get a place with me. I like the thought of something like REI or some outdoor related kind of deal, but right now, I'd almost ALMOST be happy working at walmart. Any leads? Thanks guys, I am kind of desperate here.

I've heard it is really tough in Junction now, especially with the gas industry slow down. Plus wages always are low there. I'd go to a ski town where people with money pay more. The negative is the high cost of living, which means you will always be playing catch up, but never getting there. Glenwood springs offers a decent commute to Vail or Aspen and living there is significantly cheaper than either town. Plus GJ is hot as hell in the summers. It is some advice, but not what you were asking for.

You might try Durango- It's probably a little more recession resistant, and you can live outside the town like Bayfield or Hermosa and work in Durango. Wages should be better than Junction, depending on what you do. What the hell do you do?

You *might* even be able to get a job with the Southern Ute tribe, which actually pays very well with good benefits. But you have to have a skill that no tribe member has in order to get a job.
