Hundreds apply to be junior high janitor

March 08, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Evidence of the slumping economy is stacking up at an Ohio school that has received nearly 700 applications for one open janitorial job.

Officials at Perry Local Schools near Canton in northeast Ohio say they've extended the deadline until Monday to accommodate the overwhelming response to the week-old posting.

The full-time position at Edison Junior High School in Massillon pays $15 to $16 an hour plus benefits. Supt. John Richard says many applicants are laid-off workers with heart-wrenching stories about the tough economic times.
