WE ARE IN CAPE TOWN – GOAL R 50 000
We left a job at a lodge as we could no longer take the treatment. 17 hours a day and back. In at 5am. I did 38 days in a row like this. Its French owned and they spoke French in front me, talking about me.
I was the Head chef. They spoke to me like I was nothing as well as my girlfriend. We left on the 1st of Dec and got to CT on the 2nd expecting to find work. They only paid me half of what I was owed which was R20 000 and they never even paid my girlfriend. I think because she is French and they assume she can’t do anything about this. Now we have been in the cheapest backpackers in CT for over a month and our money is finished.
I’ve had a few interviews but am always over qualified as I have a large amount of international experience in Michelin starred restaurants. Yes, I know I should open my own place but I don’t have the money for that. None of our families can help us and she doesn’t even know I’m doing this as she is too proud. Even I feel bad that it’s come to this but I don’t want to end up in a shelter, they are all full anyway.
I know I will get a job I just need more time. She will too, she has a master’s in hospitality from Vatel international hotel school and has experience as assistant GM in Bali and in Zanzibar. We just need a minimum of 50bas once we get work we will still have to wait a month to get paid and then find a cheap place to start with.
Your help and support would be appreciated so much.
