Respect for effort.

15 10 2011

I had the task and pleasure of speaking with well over one hundred restaurant job applicants over the last few days, looking over applications and getting to know the candidates, albeit very briefly.

It was a stark reminder of just how tough it is in this economy to secure employment. Beyond that, it was eye opening to realize how many people are working not just one, but two and three jobs and still struggle to make ends meet.  It has been said before, but this economy has been a game changer in so many ways, and the impact on our society is going to be analyzed and realized for many years to come.

Thank you to all of you who came out to apply in person, I have deep respect for your effort.  While we cannot employ all of you or even most of you, I do so wish you well.
