A Rooster Crowing
Top of the morning to you. I did a large rooster tile today. Sometimes hearing a rooster crow in the morning is a good thing.
At the NYC Times Square protest, one person coming out of a musical was quoted as saying, "I think it's horrible what they're doing," she said of the protesters. "These people need to go get jobs."
Two hundred people applied for a part time job here recently, six were called for an interview, Gary was one of them. At the interview they told Gary he was their top choice. When he called them back a week later, they said they weren't hiring just now.
At a job fair for one employer, thousands showed up for a few jobs; they said they'd hire Gary. He went back four times, each time they said they were going to hire him. Finally they said they weren't hiring. We talked to someone who works for that employer. She said they don't have the business to hire and never did hire anyone after the job fair. The employer who held the job fair was a local major auto dealership.
At four other local businesses they told Gary they'd hire him when business picks up, he's gone back to each one periodically; they've all said business hasn't picked up yet.
Yes it is horrible, these people want and need jobs. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
