J.J. and Florida are not having much luck looking for employment. She comes across a want ad for a school bus driver, but her chances seem slim when Alderman Fred Davis' relative applies for the same job.
Jobs are scarce for Florida and JJ. An ad for a school bus driver catches Florida's eye, but she finds it has strings attached for JJ, and the strings are attached to Alderman Davis
With both her son J.J. (Jimmie Walker) and her son-in-law, Keith (Ben Powers), unemployed, Florida applies for a part-time job as a bus driver. Alas, the position may go to a relative of Alderman Fred Davis (Albert Reed), with whom the Evans family has clashed in the past. But Davis is willing to help Florida land the job -- if J.J. will agree to design the alderman's campaign posters.
