BEN Thomas is out of work and desperate to continue supporting his young family.
Armed with a sign explaining his situation, Mr Thomas has taken to the streets of Maryborough to attract attention with the hope of it leading to a job.
"I'm getting down to the last few dollars in the bank ... this is a last-ditch effort," he said.
"I have been out of work since March."
The former Gladstone truck driver, with 10 years driving experience, said he would be happy with any job.
"I can't really be too picky," he said.
Mr Thomas's wife is also out of work because of an injury.
"There's a lot worse off people than us," he said.
"We're doing our best... but it does get pretty stressful."
Mr Thomas, who bought his first home six months ago and has two small children, said a few people had stopped to speak to him on the side of the road.
"I can't just sit at home ringing people," he said.
Mr Thomas said he would give anything a go.
"I'm pretty hard-working, get along with anyone and am a fast learner," he said.
