Need work? Once again, the U.S. Census Bureau is sending out a call for temporary workers in advance of the 2020 U.S. census.

An earlier notice was sent out in November in anticipation of staffing a Tacoma field office.

The new general hiring call is to continue to fill temporary jobs, including office and census-taker positions. The jobs are promoted as a way to earn extra income if you already are employed.

The pay ranges from $18.50 to $23 an hour, according to pay rates listed on the U.S. Census site.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, have a valid Social Security number and be a U.S. citizen.

Applicants also are required to have a valid email address and submit to a criminal background check and review of criminal records, including fingerprinting.

The work’s hours may include days, evenings and/or weekends.
