WHAT DOES IT TAKE?
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
