Teenager spotted walking 10 MILES in the snow to interview for $7-an-hour job is given work on the spot by restaurant owner – who doubled his pay
A teen’s luck appears to have changed after a chance encounter with an Indiana restaurant owner during a 10-mile trek through ice and snow for a minimum wage job interview.
It all started on Friday, when Art Bouvier, the proprietor of Papa Roux, a Cajun restaurant in Indianapolis, was laying rock salt outside the establishment after an ice storm earlier that morning.
He said he was approached by a teen who asked him how far it was to 10th and Sherman.
Mr Bouvier told WLFI-TV: ‘And I’m thinking we’re at 10th and Post. I said, “Buddy that’s probably six, seven miles.” I said, “You’d be better off on a bus especially in this weather.” He just said, “Okay, thank you.” And he kept going.’
