Reg Update – Resume
Reg’s story Threadbare – Not just a pretty face.
Jobs in the retail profession and clothing business remain scarce in Atlanta. I recently spoke to Reg who was taking an OSHA class for his not so temporary job. He had taken a “temporary” supervisory job in construction to help with the Lepper household cash flow. That was almost three years ago. It requires a hard hat and steel toed boots. Hartmarx evidently, doesn’t sell steel toed boots. He bought the boots from Wal-Mart – $19 bucks.
There are blisters on every toe. He’s up at 5 AM. It takes an hour to get to the job site.
It’s 6:45 PM, so he’s just getting home now.
I hear some of our Congressmen and women are complaining about the hours they’re spending away from home and now they are complaining about how much they make. They’re getting a steady paycheck and Cadillac benefits.
They won’t pull this economy up by it’s boot straps. Reg and people like him will.
Maybe they need a swift kick in the keester from those boots I’m talkin’ about.
Maybe they should just go home and be with their family?
Meantime, Reg has been and is actively looking for work. Sending out his (click on the link to Reg’s “resume“) doing job interviews, volunteering his time for Career Ministry and consulting their members regarding many aspects of their search for new opportunities and careers.
