"I Wish I Had a Job" Sign Held By Pedestrian In Bismarck

Posted:

It's not uncommon to see people on the shoulder of off ramps in North Dakota asking for money.

But have you ever seen a sign like this?

Dale says he came here from Arizona after he got laid off because he heard there was work in North Dakota.

Dale and his friend have been in North Dakota about a week stopping in different cities looking for work.

He says he's applied for jobs but says it's hard to get one since he has no address or phone number.

<<"I've had people tell me there's all kinds of jobs go find one and this place is hiring and that place is hiring but you know like I said no address or phone number and I fill out an application and leave those things blank we'll you're not getting a job like that," Dale said.>>

We spoke with Labor Ready in Bismarck and they told us you don't need a telephone number or address to work for them.

They also told us that 20 percent of people who show up to work for them don't have a phone number.

If you're looking for temporary work you can show up starting at 5:30 a.m.

Labor Ready is located 2015 E Main in Bismarck.
