I have been searching for long term or full time job here locally for a number of years, of course without success.
Even grade 12, a clean criminal record, good driver’s abstract good physical condition and being very bondable cannot open any doors of opportunity, which is what a lot of potential employers are seeking along with our first aid and other tickets or certificates they require.
I do not fear any drug testing. I would like to see all employers, especially government, do more random drug testing. Maybe then I might get a chance at employment and providing for my children as well.
The port uses “ A world of opportunity” as part of their building block or logo. For whom, may I ask, and why are those opportunities not made available to some of us locals. I passed all the required testing for longshore and I am still
I have been in the Canada Post system on line for a number of years now and still have yet to get a call back. I would be grateful if some sector some where, someone, anyone would encourage local employers to open those doors of opportunity for those of us that want to work.
Believe me, I have been trying. And like I said it has been a rather unsuccessful road.
