    The character Tommy Ford is often the pun of not having a job since his job is unknown ("YOU DON'T GOT NO JOB, MANNN!!!!"). However there are hints throughout the show of what Tommy's actual occupation may be: In several episodes Tommy gets Martin and the gang to participate in events to help mentor and aid troubled youth through his job (the episode where Martin reunites with his favorite childhood teacher Mrs. Trinidad; the Christmas episodes where they help the kids). It can be strongly alluded that Tommy worked for a Boys & Girls Club- type organization.
