Coast Guard takes down tip sheet suggesting furloughed employees have garage sales, baby-sit

Sell blood Plasma, Have a Bake Sale, Get rid of Your Kids!

According to the Post, the five-page tip sheet encouraged furloughed employees to "be creative" and offered ideas for supplementing income like "have a garage sale - clean out your attic, basement and closets at the same time," and "turn your hobby into income."
Selling items online, baby-sitting, walking pets, tutoring and becoming a "mystery shopper" were all suggested ways to help employees cope with what is now the second-longest government shutdown in modern political history.

I heard a report last night on the content of that tip sheet and was stuck not only how stupidit was but how insulting.

Some of these sound like SPAM get rich quick scams. Have they added "Help a Nigerian Prince transfer money".

Many federal employees are prohibited from seeking outside employment without approval from superiors, which cannot be obtained during a shutdown. D'oh.
