How many hats are you wearing?
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

In this economy, times are tough. People are having to work several jobs just to make ends meet.

Do you have a full-time job? And a part-time job? And maybe another part-time job? And you’re a student? And a mom? And a Kinship Partner? And a board member?


The Brainerd Dispatch will publish its Labor Day section in September and we want to know: How many “hats” do you wear?

We realize it might be a bit ironic for us to ask you to take time out of your busy schedules to submit a story about your multiple jobs but we hope the $100 prize money will entice you enough to do just that.

Are you a mom and wife who has a full-time job but also has a home-based business plus waitresses on the side? Are you a husband and father who works 50 hours a week in your career job but also does landscaping and odd jobs on the weekends? Or maybe you’re a teenager who has several summer jobs and also babysits the neighborhood kids every chance you get.

No matter who you are, we want to hear from you.

In 200 words or less, tell us how many jobs you have on any given day or week.

Send your submissions to DeLynn Howard, Brainerd Dispatch, P.O. Box 974, Brainerd, MN 56401 or email Include your name, age, city and phone number.

Deadline is Aug. 5.
