Working for the long weekend.

A job was offered to me, I quit my current job, and a week before I was supposed to start the new place said oops, they didnt want to hire me after all. Do I have any legal recourse against them? [more inside]

How easy is it to get a entry level job as a pyrotechnician?

How easy is it to get a entry level job as a pyrotechnician? I ran into this guy at the local computer surplus store and we got to talking about his hat. It turns out that he works for a fireworks display company. One of the things he said was that it was relatively easy to get hired as a helper at this company after taking one of their introductory seminars. This caught my interest and also pinged my scam detector. Going online I notice that most firework companies seem to run introductory seminars. I'm guessing that these courses are a nice revenue source for pyrotechnics companies. Has anyone taken any of these courses? If so, did you actually get to work on displays afterward? Was the course fun enough to be worth doing just for itself?
