While most of us have been taking it easy, Sophie hasn’t. She spends some of her days working at the same Berry Shop where Jono once did. The work is fun but the pay is peanuts and she’s liable to get her shifts cut if it rains. She often gets frustrated, after giving up a day with friends or family, to find she is not needed at all.
So she also has another job with a nationally recognized company where she wears a bright orange uniform and smiles at people all day. This job is also fun, she loves the people she works with and best of all, she earns more than her 17 year old brother who works for the same company. She also has an air-conditioned staffroom, her very own locker and proper, timetabled breaks. Instead of having her shifts cut, she is occasionally asked to cover for someone who needs time off. It’s a real job where she is made to feel useful, competent and a valuable part of the team
