Giveaway Interview TEMP TALES by JUDY CROUSE @judyc3880

Temp Tales by Judy Crouse
This book takes you through the life and struggles of a woman in search of the perfect job. From being a doormat for inconsiderate employers and temp agencies to working for less than peanuts; is it time wasted or just the cruel reality of the world in which we live? Promises of full time employment that never panned out or getting stuck in a dead-end job you wish you'd never taken to begin with. The concerns of life can be terrifying as you wonder if and when your next paycheck will come. How will you live and will that telephone ever ring? Temp Tales is a story of one woman's struggles and triumphs in the world of Temporary Employment. She shares with the reader the often ludicrous duties required of temp employees. Never one to shirk a job responsibility or say no, she always had a smile. Judy has never given up her pursuit of the dream job.





About the Author
Judy M. Crouse grew up in White Hall, Maryland. She has worked for twenty-five years as a temporary employee, and has collected many funny and strange tales along the way. Judy has written two books, A Cat’s Tale: Peanut’s Story and Temp Tales: An Exposé.

Judy hopes Temp Tales: An Exposé will encourage others who have struggled with temporary staffing companies to join her in a crusade to win fair and equal working conditions for temporary employees nationwide. She also hopes A Cat's Tale: Peanut's Story will help people understand why it's so important to spay and neuter your cats, and stop abusing our furry friends. Judy currently resides in the beautiful countryside of York County, Pennsylvania, along with her husband, whom she lovingly refers to as her Knight on a Harley, and her dear cats.
