Help wanted


Alberta is currently in the grips of a runaway economy. The surpluses are enormous. So big that earlier this year every Albertan (even infants if they were born before December 31st) got a $400 "prosperity check". One of the effects of this boom is that there simply are not enough workers for all the jobs. This is made abundantly clear by a fairly recent change to the minimum employment age. The government no longer requires permits for a company to hire 12-15 year olds. That's right. McDonalds is using preteens.

Somewhere, Lewis Hine is rolling over in his grave.

Ok this is weird...I know you Heidi, you used to live at Edwards Air Force Base and your dad was the Bishop, right? Bishop Harris? So I take it you know our man Dai somehow?

That's ridiculous. There's a million El Salvadorians who would kill for a chance to work at McDonald's in Alberta!
