Well, basically, what the thread title says. Is it easy to find work in the US during the summer? Obviously there will be differences across the country, but in general, what is the current state of affairs? I'm talking about any kind of jobs really, bar/hotel work, etc.

Basically, there are feck all jobs here, so me and a friend are thinking of heading to the US for the summer, and then heading on to Canada later on in the year.

And if this fails, I plan to go to Australia to burn alive or die at the hands of the giant spiders.
