S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s vaunted “SC Works” program wants to help you find a job …

In fact the government-funded placement service recently forwarded one of our sources an invitation to apply for the position of “Agent Mgr” with an as-yet-unidentified entity.

“Our agent managers are required to have dependable transportation and a strong work ethic,” the invitation states. “They must be experienced managers and be motivated self starters with a strong desire to succeed. We supply the training and tools needed to make this opportunity a reality. Your hours are somewhat flexible but the opportunity requires a full time commitment.”

Ok … so what’s the product?

Government-subsidized cell phones for the poor, naturally …

Or according to the invitation, “the distribution of a Govt. Cell Phone program.”

“Our work is primarily conducted in low income areas and is a combination of both inside and outside work with the majority being outside,” the invitation states. “We utilize corporate tents, table skirts, signage etc.”

And not surprisingly, the invitation expects applicants to be “very ‘hands on’ with the distribution of the phones.”

Awesome, right? And yeah, the job is straight commission with “Agent Mgrs” getting paid “according to the results you produce.”

As we noted in our original story addressing these free phones, wireless providers are “engaging in all sorts of nefarious schemes aimed at padding enrollment.”

Now you can be a part of that!

“It’s a great day in South Carolina,” people … to breed dependency.
