Overview

In today's working world, lay-offs are all too common and destructive to personal ego and families. What happens when an engineer is laid off and he has a large family to support? Some folks are a bit more creative than others and this play is about a creative approach to unemployment, legal and above board....become a temp.

And what is a temp?

When a person wants a temporary job for any reason, particularly to make money, he or she can go to a temporary employee agency, be tested and sign up. These jobs are usually for a finite period of time and include good hourly pay and sometimes, benefits of a sort. Once the job is secured, it is the temporary employee’s responsibility to show up on time, be polite and accommodating and do his or her job as defined in the agreement to perform work.
In turn, the temp agency pays the temporary employee weekly based on the number of hours worked times the rate agreed upon. This rate is normally predicated on testing, experience and other factors, and is agreed upon by the agency and the employee. Also, in turn, the client company, the business in which the temp will work, provides the equipment, the office and the work to be performed. Usually, there is a manager involved, and in some cases, fellow temporary employees.
Some people do not start out as temporary employees, but end up that way. Sometimes a layoff can cause people to choose this way of work; sometimes people only work as temporary employees, for a variety of reasons. Some individuals are infinitely over-qualified for the jobs, and others are sorely under-qualified, but somehow, the job is often granted, and the work starts. See how this particular “arrangement” works for a guy named Myron. Have fun.

Meet the Author

The Taylors, Greg (70) and Liz (64), of West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA, are individual authors, who combine to form a team in literature and are also husband and wife. As co-authors of fiction works and cooperative developers of all non-fiction books, which include technical manuals, they also maintain production roles that include plot developer, character creator, and editor of their individual works, as well as their combined works. Coming from a professional history of tech writing for industry, their seamless process of producing work in a methodical, assembly-line fashion, assures their high production and commitment to quality, which is mixed with their fathomless creativity, imagination and personal enjoyment.
Both are college graduates, Greg, Penn State University (1971) in English, and Liz, Temple University (1972) in English. Greg is an alumnus of the Pennsylvania Academy of (the) Fine Arts (1966), and a Vietnam-era veteran. These disciplines have been combined to produce, to date, over 100 e-works and countless books and manuals for industry (Greg since 1972; Liz since 1988). As a multi-genre duo, one of their more interesting characteristics is their variety of works and their selection of subjects, including historical, science and general fiction. Greg, being a technical illustrator, fine artist and cartoonist, designs and produces all covers. Being selective, Liz creates individual works in fiction, and Greg branches off into books of poetry, alternative works and plays. Their crowning achievement and passion combines in their popular series, “Valiant Scatter,” featuring the inanimate expressions of lost ships, particularly those of the various countries involved in World War II.
