Prettiest county in California – with the rudest employers

I miss living in lovely Nevada County, but I am shocked and angry when I listen to my young women friends’ employment stories.

Many have applied for advertised jobs, gone to interviews, often a second interview and even worked a “trial hour,” only to never get the decency of a phone call to say someone else has been chosen.

These women give up their time, pay for gas – so costly now – perhaps even a baby-sitter, make follow-up calls. Yet after being told a decision will be made in a day or two – nothing. No message, no call, no e-mail.

These are women with experience who apply for the jobs to support themselves or their families.

It is a sad fact that hourly wages in Nevada County are so dismal – most are better off on welfare. But this isn’t about money – it’s simply professional courtesy and respect! Should it be so hard to come by?
