The Western Star - - NEWS OPINION -

THIS week on our Face­book we posted a story about young job seeker’s strug­gles to find work in the south­west. Here is what you had to say:

JILL MAC­DON­ALD: Add to that the older age groups and it looks pretty grim in the bush MICHAEL PERKINS: Find­ing a job is one chal­lenge but dodg­ing a job is no walk in the park ei­ther. I’ve tried it at work with lim­ited suc­cess.

PATTY DEWHURST: The strug­gle for small busi­ness to em­ploy is real. So many em­ploy­ees want to be paid but not give much of them­selves for that pay. We had ap­pren­tices back in 2013 and they cost us a lot of money with the mis­takes they made (some were 3rd year ap­pren­tices), the num­ber of days they take off, the length of meal breaks, time they ar­rive for work, not to men­tion all the time the em­ployer has to pay for them to at­tend TAFE, time that the em­ployer is not mak­ing any­thing from em­ploy­ing them.
