Where is the best market in the US for unskilled labor jobs combined with a place where a young couple with nothing can start their lives?

I am asking for a 19 year old kid I know who has gotten into some pretty major trouble but is finally settling down a bit and trying, with his girlfriend, to start his adult life. They have no family, no education - not even a GED between them - no money, no car, no job experience aside from a couple of loose dishwashing and construction gigs, a patchy background that won't stand up to much of a check, nowhere to live and nothing to lose. They could move anywhere in the US that Greyhound will take them and they will have about $1000, total, when they get there. Where can they go? Where can they start over? Where is there work and affordable housing? And where is it possible to live and work without any access to a car?
