Minneapolis, Where Recent JD's Work For Dirt Cheap And Scrounge Through Garbage Cans


"Need document review done? Come to Minneapolis!

We offer: plenty of attorneys that are hungry with student loans.
We have four law schools pumping out attorneys faster than BP can spill oil
Employment-at-will statutes
Overtime starting at 48 hours vs 40 hours. (In other words, you'll never need to pay it)!
Firms from anywhere in the country can fly a partner in and out in the same day for a quick training.
Low wages, one major employer pays attorneys $17/hour with no benefits."

All,

As I am often first at a lot of things, namely the number of docs coded in any given day, the net $ on my paycheck at the end of any given week, the amount of female asses my c*ck is slithered into at the end of any given month, and most importantly, the quality of life that most of you poors will never have, I am also first for these batches of comments.

Tom,

Who are the major doc review pimps in this locale?

Beacon Hill Staffing is big out there. So is Kelly and Robert Half. I think Special Counsel is also big out there.

It is Minneapolis, which like Ohio, probably paid people $10 an hour when they clerked in house during law school or for a law firm part-time.

$17/hr sounds like the Robert Halfpay and their "new economic reality."

Nando said...

I imagine the biggest temp hag agencies in this area are Robert Half and Thomson Reuters.

For your readers' information, venture capitalist Dwight D. Opperman was the CEO of West Publishing Co. He was in charge when the Westlaw went in digital legal database. The bastard graduated from Third Tier Drake in Des Moines, Iowa.

Wait, does that mean that Drake Law School is a good law school after all?!?!?

Pot Twinkie said...

I don't know about law school, but Drake's sure makes good baked goods, like Twinkies, Ding Dongs, and Devil Dogs! Very long shelf life on their products. I wonder if this also applies to their law school?

Hostess makes the above products, not Drake's.

Did the Hostess takeover of Drake include the law school?

Twinkie Cowboy said...

Fat American:

Logic Fail

If Drake's bought Hostess, then Drake's can be considered to be the maker of Twinkies.

If Hostess bought Drake's, Hostess is still the maker of Twinkies.

Thanks for playing.

Overtime starts at 48 hours?

Fucking unreal.

Pot Twinkie said...

Time out. If Hostess bought Drake's, then Hostess now makes not only Twinkies, but also Drake's Cakes and those toxic fruit pies!

Aren't there antitrust issues with this? Those are (were), by far, the largest crapcake brands in the US. Now they're one enormous crapcake company?

Okay, the Unemployment Insurance Extension Bill Cloture Vote passed, 60-40, in the Senate this afternoon.

What does that mean?

It means the Bill no longer faces the possibility of a filibuster – which could have derailed it.
It means The Bill, now needing a simple majority to move forward, will most likely pass a final vote in the Senate and move to the House.

The House calendar will come out this evening.

If it passes the House, the Bill will be sent to President Obama for signature

Damn, even in Ohio, doc review projects pay $20 or $21 an hour, on average. I can't imagine the cost of living is much lower in Minnesota than Ohio.

Fat American said...

Point is, Twinkie Cowboy, that all those disgustingly yummy grease puffs get squirted out by the same company. What brand/logo is slapped on the package at the end is pretty irrelevant.

Much like most of the cheap clothing and electronics coming out of China, most of it is identical, with only marketing of brand names affecting price paid by consumers.

I saw Better Coder last night at a leather bar in Christopher Street. Two Dutch guys had banged him and then beat him up. Left him on the street crying like a girl. During daytimes, he says he does female asses.......... does the way he writes sound for real or like a gay queen?

There are many quotes that keeps surgeon inspired about his job, they also help him jump these large obstacles in life, here are a few:-

"At 10, I was intrigued by surgery, I wanted to be surgeon for a long time. I love doctor shows and surgery shows. Blood is not an issue for me. I even took pictures once of me getting my blood taken. "

"Dr.Babanga, my local doctor, recommended that I should try superflex before and after breakfast"

"Humanity abhors, above all things, a vacuum in itself, and your class will be cut off from humanity as surgeon cuts the cancer and alien growth from the body. "

This thread is boring. We need some racism (both anti-n word and anti-cracker) and some anti-semitism, quick.

Anonymous said...

This is the least productive site there is for contract attorneys. This could have been an interesting thread about onshoring but people would rather talk about Drakes cakes and make racist sexist remarks. It is very sad.

Anonymous said...

Welcome to the blog, 1:39! Why don't you open the "onshoring" discussion yourself? (Whatever "onshoring" means.)

PS, my Access Group monthly payment just went up again. Meantime, my hourly doc review wage has gone down over 25% in the last 2 years because of "new economic realities" (as in the TTT law schools are pumping out so many "lawyers" that there's a huge labor surplus).

Thanks, Richard Massasar, concurrently 'dean' of NY Law School AND chairman of Access Group, you fat pig.

State unemployment agencies are gearing up to resume sending unemployment payments to millions of people as Congress moves to ship President Barack Obama a measure to restore lapsed benefits.

After months of increasingly bitter stalemate, the Senate passed the measure Wednesday by a 59-39 vote. Obama is poised to sign the measure into law after a final House vote on Thursday.

It's a welcome relief to 2 1/2 million people who been out of work for six months or more have seen their benefits lapse.

Under best-case scenarios, unemployed people who have been denied jobless benefits because of a partisan Senate standoff over renewing them can expect retroactive payments as early as next week in some states. In other states, it will take longer.

State unemployment and labor agencies have been preparing for weeks for Congress to restore jobless payments averaging $309 a week for almost 5 million people whose 26 weeks of state benefits have run out. Those people are enrolled in a federally financed program providing up to 73 additional weeks of unemployment benefits.

About half of those eligible have had their benefits cut off since funding expired June 2. They are eligible for lump sum retroactive payments that are typically delivered directly to their bank accounts or credited to state-issued debit cards.

In states like Pennsylvania and New York, the back payments should go out next week, officials said. In others, like Nevada, it may take a few weeks for all of those eligible to receive benefits, said Mae Worthey, a spokesman for the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.

In North Carolina, Employment and Income Department spokesman Andrew James says to expect a wait of two to six weeks.

The Senate continued debating the measure a full day after a GOP filibuster was defeated by a 60-40 vote. Senate rules required 30 hours of debate, but missing no opportunity to seize a political edge, Democrats attacked Republicans for not waiving them and requiring an additional day of debate.

"Republicans are declaring an all-out war on unemployed Americans," said Jim Manley, spokesman for Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. "Even though Democrats have the votes to give unemployed workers the safety net they deserve, Republicans are callously delaying the vote for an entire day."

In fact, the measure could have been passed months ago had Democrats not insisted on coupling it with a host of other, more controversial legislation, such as tax increases on hedge fund managers and on some small businesses that were used to pay to renew a popular package of tax breaks for individuals and businesses.

Haven't worked a $35 an hour project in a long time. Sitting at home now, with no project, waiting to hear if I'll be "lucky" enough to get added to a treadmill, cattle-call $25 an hour project. Recruiter says "it's competitive to get added."

Ah ha. So it is you showing up for the $25 an hour cattle call. If no one showed up, they would have to raise the rates.

Good effort, though, BC! Keep chugging along!

Of course the Republicans want to start on a war on the unemployed. Anything to distract from the miserable failure of the Bush Administration and how Bush and the Republicans destroyed the economy so their Big Oil and Haliburton stocks could go up. That's why gas was $4+ a gallon right before Bush got kicked out of office, so Big Oil could suck every last penny out of us before the Democrats put them back in the place. Bush hates lawyers, and we all saw how he ripped them while he was President. It should not be surprising that the legal profession started its descent under Bush, and the natural result of Bush causing the economy to collapse is to keep hated lawyers from working. I would remember that come this November.

For the most part, the people commenting on this thread are boring and stupid.

Thomson Reuters is a big employer in the cities, and they hire places like Kelly Law to recruit for them. EXCEPT in the past few years they've also been hiring "interns" (limited to law students) for I don't know what pay to do the same stuff as the other contract attorneys there do.

Which, in the vast amount of available jobs out there, is not experience that I think would advance a real legal career.

PS pay is $22 for all contractors and has been since way before the "new economic reality".

Anonymous said...

When I worked in the cities the rate was $25 (good for the Cities in 07) and OT started as mandated by law--after 40 hours.

I always say that the biggest beneficiaries of law schools are NEVER the law graduates, but the law firms and other employers of law graduates.

Another beneficiary of law schools is the faculty and the administration running the law schools.

In this capitalistic society, why would the law school industry in general make the law graduates the biggest beneficiaries, when the people running the law industry are law firms, employers of law graduates, and the faculty??

As a corollary, college education in the US mainly benefits corporate America, who are the employers of college graduates. Education in America produces workers for corporate America, not citizens for the society.
