Full Time Jobs Wanted
Date posted - January 6, 2013
I am concerned that if the Development committee in Sheldon does not bring in industry and jobs, that we will no longer be “a nice place to live.”
It seems like most of Sheldon’s employment opportunities are minimum wage jobs, part-time, with no benefits. I look at the job openings (for example) at the hospital, Village, HyVee, Casey’s, etc. and yes, they have jobs to fill but they do not hire a person to make a living to pay for their basic needs of rent, utilities, food. Sometimes they are generous to allow the person more hours but they will not contract a person a 40 hour week because that would mean they would have to pay benefits.
If the development committee would offer tax incentives and land for a company to come in that offers decent wages and give them a great package deal we might draw in jobs. We do not need minimum wages with part time employment. We have enough of those jobs!
