Dominique Needs a Job
By Colleen Messina

1     Dominique is a young man in France. He wants to be a film editor. He has a big problem, though. Dominique can't find a job. He has looked for two years. He doesn't have much money because he can't find work.
2     Many young people in France cannot find jobs. Unemployment is high. It is hard to be out of work. People without jobs feel sad. They feel sick. They visit the doctor more often. They can't pay their bills. They can't take care of their families.
3     Unemployment can lead to other problems. It can contribute to problems like divorce or violence.

Would the job offer free ice cream cones or some other delicious benefit?
