Come people wonder of The Situation and Snookie really work. Others – the unemployed looking hard for jobs – wonder why the stars of MTV’s Jersey Shore are so lucky as to be given television contracts.
The 8 cast members of the show are not all employed full-time outside of the TV series. In fact, only 4 seem to hold down jobs, all of them somewhere in New York City. Their Seaside Heights vacation spot is near enough to NYC to afford residents of the area about 150,000 job openings; mostly in Healthcare, Supermarket, and Department Store jobs nearest to Seaside Heights. Other, better paying jobs are available within 15 to 20 miles.
