Paul Nawrocki Gets Hired!

Long time readers might remember “Paul Nawrocki” — he was looking for a job without much success, and had taken to using a 1930s style sandwich board that said “Almost Homeless.”

If memory serves, TBP was the first outlet to discuss Nawrocki’s heartbreaking story —  but eventually, his story got picked up by all manner of media.

He declared bankruptcy last year, lived on food stamps, fell behind on his mortgage.

Well, good news — after 99 weeks on unemployment, Nawrocki finally found a job.

Here’s the really crazy part: “For months, he’s been waiting fearfully for his mortgage company to call — waiting for a foreclosure notice, for something. But so far, nothing has happened.”

Well, glad to see at least he has an income again . . .

Best of luck Paul!
