In the rebuilding efforts after the wildfires, a number of short-term jobs may become available.
The U.S. Department of Labor has given a $50 million grant to the California Employment Development Department (EDD) to help counties affected by the wildfires. Part of this money will be used to create temporary jobs on projects related to cleanup, repair, and rebuilding in places damaged by the wildfires.
Additionally, as rebuilding continues in the coming months, more temporary jobs, especially those related to construction, will become available.
Check the EDD job website, job centers, and other online job websites for these types of jobs (http://www.socalhelp.org/en/employment/find_employment). Job postings will be rolling in over the coming months, so check back regularly if you are looking for work.
