As an Airbnb host, Lyft driver, or anyone else who earns money from the sharing economy, you’ve probably had tax questions at some point. The IRS now has a site dedicated to answering those questions.
There is nothing wrong with planning for the future. If you are a cab driver, or a truck driver, or an Uber driver, now is the time to plan for what you will do when your job disappears. And for what we should do for you.
Do you love cars, speed, technology, and telling great stories about those things? Are you a fast, smart, creative writer with a commitment to truth and kicking the asses that need to be kicked? Do you waste your entire work day on Jalopnik as it is? My friend, we want to talk to you.
When Jalopnik started back in 1883 as a telegraph-based horseless carriage news service, we had always planned on branching out into job recruiting. I'm happy to say that after over a century of planning, it's happening! And in the best way possible: Lego wants to hire a Jalopnik reader to be a graphic designer.
Hey! Want to work for a company that has tons of promise and definitely hasn't been on the verge of collapse at any point during the last few decades? Then you need to get out to Norwich and apply for a job with Lotus Cars.
Eight bus drivers in the South American nation of Paraguay have crucified themselves after being fired two months ago. They say they were let go after demanding better pay and conditions, and have remained nailed to their crosses for at least two weeks.
Last week, Lotus cancelled all of its new cars. This week, they are going to start hiring 100 people. And they're mostly engineering jobs. This is today's installment of "backwards news."
Believe it or not, the economy seems to be on its way back up. That means people are buying more things that need to be shipped here and there. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that it will mean a 20 percent growth in the demand for truckers over the next eight years.
One bright spot in the jobs picture appears to be the auto industry. Americans are buying more cars, and carmakers are putting more people back on the assembly line. Oh, except there aren't many assembly lines in Detroit anymore. D'oh!
On Wednesday night, Chicago police arrested three men after they were caught vandalizing seven Toyotas at the Chicago Auto Show. While it sounds like dumb kids gone wild, the alleged vandals claimed they were angry about American jobs shipped overseas.
Computer-controlled, multi-axis assembly robots are the Carpocalypse's forgotten unemployed. Once, they built our cars; now, they sit dormant. What else are they good for? Here are ten jobs that might be a good fit.
Like cars? Know how to work a computer without setting the building on fire? Can you communicate in English without getting into a fistfight? Jalopnik needs you!
The sad fact of the current state of our manufacturing industry is the traditional US automakers just aren't hiring anyone these days. In fact, they're kicking 'em out the door as fast as it'll swing open. But hey, those new guys in town — automakers like the super number one awesome best automaker from the land of…

What young boy doesn't want to be a stunt driver at some point? Having grown up in an era of flying second-and- third generation Trans Ams and orange Chargers, we dreamed of the day we'd fly through the air in a 1980 Corvette with the Unocal 76 logo painted on the hood, maybe even leaping through a hoop of fire…
