Wayne Township Reviews

3 reviews
The employment in the area I live in is very difficult sometimes. Many people that find a job end up not enjoying it because he town we have is so small sometimes knowing everyone is a disadvantage. Drama occurs between people and usually ends in a loss of job. Getting a job is the matter of your resources and friends. Many people look at your last name and automatically judge you from your social status. Job opportunities do come up and are easily accessible, but any don't need a degree and are in the food business which many people don't stick with.

Many businesses in this area are locally owned. We have recently added some fast food chains in our area, but still have a small town. we have a few really good locally owned restaurants that are the usual stops for regular customers. We have very little places to find good quality clothing so many times having to drive forty five minutes to get to a mall. we have many stores that have used items to buy at decent priced items. Walmart and two other grocery stores are the main sources of food in our area and sometimes for good organic food needing to drive 45 minutes as well.
There are just about as many bars as there are churches i this area. Some people go out at night often, but it mostly are the usual "drunks" of the town. Not a whole lot happens at night where i live. Some people might go spotting or have bonfires out on a back road somewhere to drink instead of local bars. popular restaurants are ones that are typically owned by townspeople. others involve fast food just because it s quick and easy. we have many pizza options.
