In rural Missouri where the factories and the mines closed a generation ago, if you're an otherwise unskilled worker, working for a public school is a damn highly sought after job. Same with working for the county highway department. Even if it's only part-time, it pays better than the 10 hours a week you'll be lucky to get at the local Wal-Mart that ran all the other retailers out.

Just ask my aunt. She drove a school bus for a rural district for 30 years.
