Many job opportunities in this area are fast food restaurants, grocery stores, auto repairs, or simple minimum wage jobs. This is a smaller county so there are not huge companies around here unless you go towards the metro St. Louis area.

You can always find what you need at our local super market in Breese. The employees are very friendly and it is family based. One complaint would probably be the prices are a little high, but you are paying the amount for the quality, which is great.
