The federal government is looking to hire thousands of people across Minnesota to assist with the 2020 Census. Sam Fettig with the U-S Census Bureau says workers go door-to-door to follow up when someone doesn’t respond to census questions on-line, by phone or on the paper form.

“Hoping to hire really locally so that, when someone comes knocking at your door, it’s someone you know and it’s someone who knows your community.”

Fettig says work hours are flexible and pay is “pretty good”:

“For someone even who might have a 9 to 5 job already, it’s a good way to get involved, help your community, ensure that you have the federal resources and political representation for the next 10 years.”
