When you first moved here was it difficult to get jobs?
No, no. It was easy, very, very easy to get job. I remember in 1965 I came here and my dad said that I was too young to get job. I said that I want to get job, that was in 1965 December. I said “No. I want to get job. I want to help you.” I went to job with the big, big machine. I was so scared that I wanted to be away from there. Then start job in 1969, all the factory and foundry gatekeepers would ask if you were looking for job. That was a good time you know. Very, very, very good time, especially English people were helpful, very helpful.
I remember in 1970 when I moved into Liversedge and English was very, very difficult. Our next door neighbour was a teacher and when she realised that I can’t speak English she used to come everyday after school to teach us. Next door was a post office and he was very helpful as well.
