Re: “Sounds Like the Browns Career Fair Was a Very Browns Event Indeed

This is what most career fairs in sports are like. Most positions that aren't entry level sales jobs are easily filled via online or referrals, so these career fairs are used as a tool to meet young people that are selling themselves in person as potential employees would be good fits in sales. The Cavs do the exact same thing. Go to Columbus or Pittsburgh and you'll find the same.

Re: “Two Years Later, Tamir Rice's Family Still Awaits Justice

It astonishes me that I live among apparently normal people who seem willing and able to overlook the murder of a child.

I know I could not bear the burdens placed on Mrs. Rice and her family. I never knew this little boy, and I can't stand it.

This inaction is not a result civilized people would accept.

Re: “Forty Years Later, a Former Cleveland Paperboy Revisits the Sexual Assault that Changed His Life

I would like to commend the author on the depth of his honesty and the acknowledgment of his own pain. Our stories share a lot of similarities. I was a girl, you were a boy...we were both children in homes where we were considered expendable. Your violent pedophile was a brute of a man who ran an apartment building. My violent pedophile was a priest. He raped me first at the age of 5 and continued to sexually abused me up to, and including through 8th grade. At the end of my 8th grade I realized I was pregnant. I miscarried the child in a toilet bowl of a Catholic High School in Paramus, N.J., in the first month of my freshman year. The destruction he did to my body through sexual violence and brutality....resulted in a hysterectomy which prevented me from having my own family. He was a priest. He was also my uncle. I was not his only victim. But everybody kept the silence and the secret..most painful for me to admit is that his fellow priests, my parents andy grandmother regarded me as a child not worthy to proyect.When I went to the church in my forties to get money for PTSD therapy, I was denied. I was told it was incest and not clergy sexual abuse even though it took place in rectories in New Jersey and elsewhere. It was incest they said and therefore they had no responsibility to help me. And so they did not help me. I guess he was a priest from the belt up and and uncle from the belt down. He died of a heart attack when I was 17, he was about 37. He died an unregistered sex offender. I look forward to an opportunity where I can write my story and get it published. Congratulations to you for speaking your truth. Some of the most degrading things you described have been part of my life also. I have lived a life of secrets and Shame. I understand more today. Thank you for sharing your story.

Re: “Sounds Like the Browns Career Fair Was a Very Browns Event Indeed

Deets? SERIOUSLY? WTF? Do you make that shit up, or what? Is this the Nerw York Daily News or TMZ now?

Sounds like this"Career" (yeah, right) Fair is just another scam to sell a few more tickets to a blowout...which is a skill that potential Browns ticket sales interns will actually need to to fast-talk and bamboozle the suckers.

And these aren't even REAL, ENTRY-LEVEL, SLAVE_WAGE McJobs, right? Doesn't intern mean working for nothing to "get the experience" and another line on a resume? Sounds like your typical job fair...smoke and mirrors and blowing that same smoke up attendees' asses.

My condolences to the chumps who fell for the charade...damn betcha they have a right to be pissed.

Re: “Two Years Later, Tamir Rice's Family Still Awaits Justice

Regardless of how bad or good a parent Ms. Rice was, a child, her son lost his life. Granted, the veteran officer, (training officer) put his partner (a rookie) at risk by zipping the car next to the kid. True, the rookie should of never of been selected to serve on the CPD based upon his record from the Independence police force. The CPD was culpable based upon the selection of this individual. At best, both officers should be removed for not following procedure. Should they be charged with a crime? No.
The Mayor should be ashamed and not forgiven for his hallow words to conduct a fast track and true administrative review. In essence, his inaction is a concurrence of the actions of the officers. I just hope that all voters remember what he has not done for each of you as you parade to the polls next year selecting a mayor.

Re: “From the Front of the House to the Back, Cleveland Restaurants are Dealing With a Talent Crunch

I've worked in the service industry through high school and college. I would never make a career out of this because people get treated like dogs. I've been yelled at for eating when we're slow, snacks that I had brought. I've worked in horrible conditions with endless sexual harassment. I've had to clean restaurants top to bottom at 3am because these giant chefs with several restaurants can't afford a cleaning crew apparently, but can make their tipped employees do it. Ive had checks withheld from me. I've had guests scream in my face and slap my hand if I took a plate too early. I've worked 12 hour shifts with no break, regularly. Why would anyone make a career of this?!

Re: “From the Front of the House to the Back, Cleveland Restaurants are Dealing With a Talent Crunch

I think the answer is rather simple. In the competition for the better hospitality staff, it's time to either start paying your people well or lose them. At ABC/XYZ we seem to keep our employees for years and attract the very best. I don't see much of the "bubble," but if you aren't paying well, or not providing benefits, I think you are destined to fail. Taking good care of your staff in every way is vital, friendship, family, respect. There are far too many owners who still think staff is expendable and that a revolving door is to be expected.

Re: “From the Front of the House to the Back, Cleveland Restaurants are Dealing With a Talent Crunch

12-14$ is not enough to keep talent kafcsak!
Hiring younger is agism stein!
And let's not forget that the restaurants hire blacks in the kitchen and whites on the floor which is racist! The service industry is a haven for ne'er do wells druggies drunks and douchebag bartenders. A virtual orgy of ignorance. Management is either fascist, racist, or unconcerned. Too many people are comfortable in their food service job while having no experience or desire to learn more. The solution will come when the employees begin to care again and if people don't tip that will never happen. If kitchens don't pay more that will never happen. By the way... if your profit margins are low it's because you suck from top to bottom.
I'm a cook
I've found my niche
A good boss, good restaurant, good pay.
Good luck to the rest of you
The good talent goes to the good restaurants
If you don't have it then you aren't good.

Re: “From the Front of the House to the Back, Cleveland Restaurants are Dealing With a Talent Crunch

Improvements in pay generally solve this problem.

In fact, last year, and the year before that, there were big articles in places like "The New York Times" and "Chicago Tribune" and "Los Angeles Times" talking about a shortage of pastry chefs, and a shortage of line cooks, and a shortage of maitre d's.

Low pay, craptastic working conditions, and awful bosses all ended up being the cause.

The market is at work here.
