What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

Laid off? Wear a wristband.

leave a comment »

Two Florida women are now selling wristbands saying “Laid Off Need A Job.Com” over the Internet. For only $3, you too can wear your unemployed status on your sleeve (well, actually, your wrist).

The wristbands are designed to help the laid off network and advertise their status, according to their jobless and underemployed creators.

According to the Detroit Free Press, they’ve already sold up to 6,000 wristbands in three months and recouped their initial investment.

I haven’t decided yet whether or not to buy and wear one of these. The testimonials on their web site say people have received jobs from wearing these. Yet, I’m shy enough not to want to call attention to myself by wearing one.
