This is going to sound silly, but I'm serious: every time I have fallen out of work, I have found short-term employment as a taxi driver.
Driving a taxi is not as easy as it looks. But, it is usually not hard to find a job doing it, because it tends to be a high-turnover profession. In Ohio, you don't need a special license for anything under 15 passenger. All you need is a clean driving record. Not SPOTLESS, just clean. The pay is not great, but it is usually a flexible job.
This area has some specialized companies in that field, too, such as PTI in Walbridge, who handles crew transportation for the railroads. I worked for them for a while, it wasn't bad. There are also some short-distance livery companies, such as Panther or Try Hours. They usually pay a little better.
Like I said, I realize that sounds kind of silly, but it's no joke. As a younger man, I found myself out of work once, and took a taxi job because I couldn't find anything else where I was living. I have bounced back to it a few times since then, when between jobs. It's not bad for bridging a gap.
