I was recalling when there were always plenty of jobs in this business. When in 1991 in Jasper I actually worked in 3 different restaurants at one time.
I worked breakfast at the Lobstick Lodge till 11:30 then zipped to Mama Teresa’s, an Italian food restaurant, where I started at noon.
Then I would get myself outta there by 3 then at 4 start at this Greek food restaurant called the Palisades at 4 and work till about 9-9:30. Then I would stop by the ATM machine and put some tips in and head to the club where I packed a couple of beers away and had a bite to eat.
Home at 11 I would head to bed to get some rest and do it all over again the next day.
Needless to say I got sick of this pretty quick and it only lasted a couple of weeks when I bid the lunch job farewell.
A couple of years later I went back for a visit and the job boards had all but dried up. The recession hit in 92 and that was it.
I don’t think a lot has changed since…
