Twenty-six-year-old Ben Lui is desperate for aa job.
The young lad from the village of Nu’u-fou understands the importance of securing a stable job so he can contribute to the development of his family.
Speaking to the Village Voice team yesterday, Mr. Lui said only one person in their family works.
“I’ve wanted to go and work ages ago, but then there was noone here to help my dad with our vegetable garden,” he said.
“My second eldest brother is the one who has a regular job but for me I sell our vegetables.”
So why would he want to leave what he is doing?
He reckons he can make better money elsewhere.
“I am good at anything,” he said. “I would accept any job offer because I am desperate for a job at the moment.
“Whatever money I would earn, I would be happy knowing that I am contributing for my family’s welfare.
“Right now for Samoa if you don’t work you won’t be able to survive and that’s how hard life is these days.”
Mr. Lui says he also needs to help his two younger siblings with their education.
“I have two brothers who are still in school and I also want to contribute to their education.
“For school fees here in Samoa, the higher the level, the more fees you have to pay.”
Mr. Lui says he just wants to help his family.
“For us, the youths of Samoa today, we have to step up and help our parents.
“I just can’t wait to get a job to support my family, especially my folks.”
For those willing to help Mr. Lui, he can be contacted on mobile phone number 7258441.
