I’m cynical because as I travel the country, I see many foreigner kids working at our parks. Many stutter thru English. In fact, support companies (restaurants, gift shops, motels) need to hire Eastern Euros to do the work..because USA millennials won’t. The entitlement bug has been them good.
There are firms with contracts to recruit Romanians, Croatians and Ukranians to come over en mass for these jobs – they love the work and will do it. I commend them and tell them so.
Ditto Yosemite. And I am told that our youth will not clean rooms, slop floors, clean sheets. Limp. Yet they wait texting hoping IBM will call. This pisses me off. AARRGGHH
READ: Here’s a Yosemite job for your kid.
These Government jobs are paying WAY above minimum wage. Expect $16-$22/hr depending on position. 300 spots are being filled for the summer of 2018.
Ask John or Jane if they want to do this. Backcountry rangers, entrance station rangers, custodial services, forestry technicians, utility systems operators, administrative assistants, traffic control rangers, etc.
See www.usajobs.gov through the end of January. Do it now….some have application limits.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “I saw her sitting in the rain. Raindrops falling on her. She didn’t seem to care, she sat there and smiled at me. Then I knew she could make me happy. Flowers in her hair – Flowers everywhere.” – The Cowsills
