Several times a week we get these little strips of paper in our mailbox. They are quite common in Cape Town. Sometimes neatly handwritten, sometimes typed or printed, they represent job applications.

(South Africa's unemployment rate currently stands at about 25% (official figure). The unofficial figure is closer to 40%. More than 40% of young people under the age of 30 are unemployed. Each year hundreds of thousands of school leavers enter the job market, most with little chance of finding anything.)
(Art journal pages started months ago and recently finished: job application strips, paint, cutouts from primary school textbook lesson about work, paper bag that contained two expensive croissants.)
