WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

That is my frus­trated ques­tion. What does it take for two young men in Mata­mata to get a job? I have watched for a long time, my two lads try to gain em­ploy­ment in Mata­mata. First they tried to get part time work at the main store in town which seems to em­ploy all the stu­dents.

My lads watched as mate after mate started work­ing at this store and they kept be­ing over looked. They put in more than one ap­pli­ca­tion, in fact one son has files worth of ap­pli­ca­tions he has put into this store and all were kept but not acted on.

I’ve been to see the store about it and was told that they’d look into them both. One got a in­ter­view but missed out for rea­sons un­ex­plained.

Then he of­fered free hours at the store to try and get his foot in. He had to walk into town to meet the store owner who then told him that they don’t have any vol­un­teer work. Why not tell him on the phone? Why put him through that
