Need a Car Washed?
About six months ago I asked Dave, the manager of the Splish Splash Car Wash on south Main Street in Archdale, if he needed additional workers. He gave me some application forms and I had some of my Burmese friends fill them out. Dave worships at a Baptist church down in Hillsboro. About a week later, while I was away on a business trip he called and arranged with World Relief, to hire some of our church attenders.
Last weekend when Kay and I went in to have our cars washed, I found out he now has four Burmese men working for him. They ride their bikes about 2 miles to work. The car wash work depends on the weather but lately they have been getting some good work weeks.
Two of the men who work at the Splish Splash car wash are pictured above. Kyaw Lay Day [Joliday] and his family are pictured on the left. Since this picture Ay Byine [Aw Bine] has given birth to her son named Eh Soe [Eh Sew].
Thah Nung [Thaw Naw] is on the right. Thah Nung is a single father of a young girl. His two brother-in-laws Maung Ei [Mung Ee] and Bye Bye have gotten production jobs at Marsh Cabinets.
