Some may laugh, but I honestly know someone who did this to feed his family
while he was laid off. The strange thing is that he made enough money to
survive. He told me that he would go to the metal factories and ask them if
he could remove the scrap for them. They didn't pay him but he was bringing
stuff in to the recycling place and getting paid by them each time. A friendly
reminder that when the going gets tough...the tough get going!
