Shovelers aplenty in Codman Square

I read with interest the letter concerning the dearth of shovelers in Onset (“A lot of snow, but no shovelers,” Letters, Feb. 15). Here in Codman Square in Dorchester after every storm we have many people who offer to shovel us out.

As a recently widowed older woman, I am delighted to invite these competent teenagers and young men to help me. They do an excellent job, and I am happy to pay them for it. The numbers interested in working here, in contrast to more affluent parts of Massachusetts, are indicative of the unemployment challenges and low incomes in many city neighborhoods. Listen up, those who believe that everyone who wants to work can find a steady job.
