The Census is hiring and in the current low-unemployment job market, the Census Bureau has increased wages in the hopes of attracting enough workers. Census takers will make a minimum of $15.50 per hour depending on location. In urban areas pay rates are as high as $25-$30 per hour. The majority of census work is done in the late spring and into summer, so this can be an ideal summer job. Applicants must be 18 years old. Details and application here.
