88. US Postal Service: "temporary" - $11 hour, 12 hour shifts, no bennies.
The USPS is hiring for what they term "casual" employment, i.e., temporary over the holidays. Requirement (for warehouse work, including lifting up to 70 pounds) is for 12 hour days, 6 or 7 days per week. Shifts are usually overnight - like 4 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Standing, carrying, lifting, pushing for 12 hours at a stretch, every day? Brutal.
