A well-dressed man with over thirty years' experience in the toy industry, Paul Nawrocki, took to the streets with a sandwich board that displayed "Almost Homeless". No, he doesn't want some spare change.
Paul wants a job.
The unemployed professional, once Director of Operations at Sababa Group for over four years, paraded his board across Grand Central Station and the Rockefeller Centre after being laid off in an unsuccessful bid for the company to stay afloat. The tactic worked.
Thousands of news outlets reported Paul's story. Eventually after 25 months of being unemployed he secured a position at Fantasma, a company specialising in children's magic tricks and props.
