brian ferguson 2 weeks, 2 days ago on Tight rental market, limited labor force are challenging employers in Steamboat Springs

Employers need to make it easier for potential employees to get hired. So many hoops to jump through to get the simplest of jobs. Talking to someone in florida for a local job? Locked doors to establishments even though they day to come to the side door? Resumes??? To flip a burger??? Even when their ad days just to swing by?

And by the way...what the heck is a "competitive" wage?

My favorite job interview lately involved being told 10 dollars an hour was an EXCELLENT wage, and anything broken in the store by customers would be coming out if my paycheck...and then I was told training was "half pay"

Man...i miss Steamboat...the way it used to be..bunch of clowns running the show nowadays

Sounds great, but why were there representatives from banks there? Trying to get a better look at who NOT to lend money to I guess.

My father smoked thru the 60's and 70's and 80's, stopped smoking thru the 90's and 2000's. ...and then decided to enjoy mj again recently due to the fact that alcohol made him feel like crap. He is a Vietnam vet, has a degree in English, raised 7 kids (6 of whom weren't even his), worked for a large electronics corporation for 20+ as a distribution manager for the central U.S., and is a terrific golfer :-).....but ya....stupid stoner.

Sooooooo sorry Lee. Next time I just wont comment....just thought it was funny to see someone call the police for someone not wearing a helmet. (there isn't even a motorcycle helmet law in Colorado, never mind a bicycle helmet law). You know, I saw a roller blader with no kneepads....CALL THE COPS!!!!!

brian ferguson 6 months ago on All-day forum in Steamboat Springs seeks housing solutions for locals

I remember paying $500 a month at Walton village in the mid 90's. The job I worked at the time paid $10 per hour, above average for the time for restaurant work. Walton village condos now rent for 800-1000 per month, and starting wages at restaurants and other lower paying jobs still average $10 per hour...20 YEARS LATER!!!
