Once a week, a bowling alley in Michigan (where else?) welcomes about 150 unemployed workers, along with some hiring companies and employer reps, to try to throw some strikes and get their careers out of the gutter. It’s all free too.

Read about the Unemployment League in the WSJ.

It’s unclear how many bowlers are getting jobs out of the league-job fair, but the idea is certainly not as crazy as the fact that one of the members of an unemployed networking group in Long Island was a horse. That’s weird even by standards set by Roy Munson and the Big Lebowski.
