Doing what it takes to make it

My sister and her wife are truly struggling.

The factory in town, where they both worked shut down and now they are living on unemployment income.

They are both trying to find jobs however they have done the same thing for the past several years and working on an assembly line doesn’t supply you several skills for today’s job market. I did tell them both that the local school was looking for cleaners however they don’t seem absolutely interested in that line of work either. My wife and I have talked about what every one of us would do in their situation and every one of us both agree that every one of us would take whatever job was available to make ends meet. If it meant working at the school, mopping floors, or even working at a fast food joint. Many of these jobs are work intensive and you don’t have ideal working conditions however at least it would help to pay the bills. I feel that a single of the reasons they don’t want to work there is because the school buildings are not air conditioned and can get absolutely moderate while every one of us were in the summer. This is when they need people most in order to ready the building for the next school year! Whatever their reasons I wish they would do something instead of laying around feeling sorry for themselves and collecting unemployment. A job is not going to fall into their laps and the factory is not going to open back up. Maybe they should apply to the local trade school and take classes in something that would be more relevant in today’s job market.
