Cubicle Prostitution: $1,000 Reward to Find This Woman a Job


Desperate times call for desperate measures. An unemployed Dallas woman, Sonja Funakura, is offering a $1,000 reward if someone finds her a job.

Funakura, a financial analyst who is now volunteering for yard work, believes a bounty for employment may be the ticket. One day when she was contemplating her future, she thought of the age-old saying, “Money Talks.” The idea was born.

She is picking weeds in the meantime... for free.

After spending her $50,000 in retirement, she has cut back on many things. Perfume and clothes purchases no more. Mowing the lawn? She waits as long as possible to save gas.

It’s not easy being 51 years old and looking for a job amongst college graduates, especially in this economy. So, will the reward pay-off? I’m sure. I just hope it doesn’t start an unwanted trend. Sure, prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, but we don’t need a bunch of work whores bidding for jobs. It hasn’t come to that. (Has it?)

At the end of the day, we are paid to work. The last thing I want to do is pay for a damn job.

    Make comments about my job search but until you’ve done the usual sending out resumes, networking, meeting with other unemployed folks, talked to every recruiter around, and cold called companies, you’ll get to a point of trying something. Sure there are jobs at fast food places but if you are single with a mortgage, how do you live on that? Prostitution you call it? So when a company pays recruiters to find job candidates…would that be prostitution too? By that definition all of us are in some form or another. Sonja Funakura

    It is the concept of this job search idea, not your personal job search, that we are commenting on.

    The fact that an eager, well-qualified person is looking to pay for work is a scary thought. It’s a very innovative idea but could create a trend with major consequences.

    The last thing we need in this poor economy is some entrepreneur to create an Ebay site for jobs.

    Finding a job nowadays hits close to home as a few of our writers are in the hunt. We understand the difficulties. Could we imagine paying money to sit in a cubicle for 8 hours a day? Maybe, but it seems like a form of torture to me.
