It's now due. Did everyone fill one out??? Did anyone fill one out??? You really should, you know. For most of us it should be easy. Just write in the number 1 and mail it back. When they start physically canvassing your neighborhood is the time to be concerned. It will be a scammers HEY DAY. Don't let it become their pay day. The legitimate people should all have badges with photos. Don't let anyone in your home and don't answer any questions other than how many people reside in your home. If you recognize anyone from Britt's Rougues Gallery, immediately Lock your door and call the police. Please; don't end up with a blog on here explaining how you were scammed by a census worker...

That may be true Shaz, but my point was the Gov't hired 48K temporary workers and included them in the 9.7% unemployment rate. Without that 48K person hire the unemployment number could well have been more than 10%. Proof that Obama's stimulus plan is not working...

Shaz. We must have seen the same news report. The census bureau just hired about 40K temporary worker which are included in the jobs created, numbers and the 9.7% unemployment figures. I hate to think where those numbers will go when these temp jobs are terminated...



Mr Bill,

 I know the woman census worker  I mentioned personally. She has worked for the cenus in various capacities for several years, off and on.

Take a guess what they pay people here in the SF Bay area to go door to door ?

All of $ 10.00 an hour. Not exactly what anyone would consider great pay. Especially when your territory is in bad areas.

They get no benefits at all and when done, can not collect unemployment because it is considered a " contract position"

NO shortage of people applying..because for many, some work is better than no work.

The real truth of the matter with short term work... if you are getting ANY sort of gov aid at all,,your benefits will be stopped and when you are not working anymore..ANY new benefits will be calculated at the most recent wage level.

  This includes medical coverage, any unemployment you may have gotten when you lost your REAL job, food benefits, child care, housing,,EVERYTHING.

  What is messed up isnt that people sometimes need to have helping aid...its that they get penalized for trying to be honorable and take what work there IS.

Hi, Bill.

Here in my home I'm not the one responsible for filling out the damn form.  The one who is did this:  Fill in the number of people of living here:  Two.  Under race, he put AMERICAN.  That was all he filled out.  That is more information than the Constitution requires the Fed Gov't get from us. 

When and if the official Census Taker shows up at our door to get further information---you can bet she or he will be turned away pronto.

So far, according to news I heard today, less than 50% of American citizens have mailed in their census report.  I think this issue could become the next big NEWS MEDIA BLOCKBUSTER.....  We shall see.....

Bill, A lady I know IS a door to door census taker> Her car broke down at one point so I took her on some of her rounds. YES THEY ALL CARRY Photo Ids and in addition, they have the official Census 2010 totebag things to carry all the info in. Most people in the neighborhood she was working were cooperative. I would not have wanted to do her job,,,the areas she was assigned were in bad neighborhoods, crime wise. They are NEVER supposed to enter into a private home.
