Jobs are out there
REL “Jobless rate a concern,” ( Mt Druitt-St Marys Standard, September 30).
Yes, I’m employed, two jobs, as a matter of fact, no one can say that people in Bidwill are more disadvantaged than others.
I’m not saying everyone in Bidwill should be able to get a job but to say Bidwill has the highest unemployment rate is strictly due to the residents not willing to work unless it suits their hours or they don’t have to travel far.
I don’t want to sound rude but I’m a statistic that is proof it can be done.
The only ones in Bidwill who should be finding work tough to get are the elderly and disabled.
I have a friend with a training company, that last year was offering a Certificate 3 in Warehousing that gave participants a LF and LO forklift licence, and RF scanner certificate.
This was in addition to an electric pallet jack certificate and voice pick certificate.
It costs their job provider only $240 and she had funding for about $1 million.
She struggled filling classes and the main response she got from job seekers is that warehousing isn’t what they want to do but (they want to work). What a load of rubbish. Bidwill residents just need to be willing to go outside their comfort zone. TODD BLACKLAWS,
