If I were licensed in CT and could find cheap housing, I wouldn't mind that. I have applied to a few of the legislative positions with zero success.

It is weird that they put "$296 a week - Full-time" at the top. Wonder how many other people saw that, freaked, and didn't read down far enough to see the per diem mention Kramer points out?

Excellent point. If I was just doing a quick headline search I would have thought the same thing as the OP and laughed and passed.

How indeed? If its per day, which it likely, then you are at $77,256.00 per year. That is with no vacation days, no holidays, no sick days. That is a straight 5 days a week, every week. You are only 75% of the way to six figures young buck. Not sure a temp gig pushing that, with no real transferable skills is something to shoot for.
