Unskilled Manual Labor

Prospective employers can be difficult to convince. Especially if they only seek applicants with experience. A gas station proprietor looks like a horse’s ass when he seeks experienced persons to pump gas. To make corned beef sandwiches, one needs two years experience? There is an employer that doesn’t seem to have any sense. A job seeker’s hopes can easily be killed if that’s what it takes for manual labor positions to be filled.
