  • Discouraged Job Seeker (No one wants to pay a fair wage

    I went to one of those job fairs. I was told to dress for and be prepared to be interviewed. Of the 100 booths I was only interested in 4 jobs. ALL handed out a flyer and said “apply online.” My company closed their Milwaukee plant and I saw on their website 4 positions opened in their Germantown Plant. They had a booth at a job fair for 4 job openings! I worked for the company for 7 years and I was handed a flyer and told to apply online! You should have seen some these job seekers and what they were wearing. Shorts, tee shirts, flip flops and sandals, women wore skin tight pants and very low cut blouses. It was a joke and a waste of my time. The only good part was seeing all my former coworkers who were there also seeking employment. I wonder if these companies get some tax breaks and even if there are jobs available?
