Can anyone recommend a jewelery repair place? (Not a watch battery, that I'd go to twin City..)
Why not go to twin city for the repair?

Great point. It is almost impossible to find women in Lakewood that are willing to work 9-5.
My wife was working 3-6 it was basically impossible to find babysitting that went until 5 6 was harder than that. Got excited when we heard of babysitting that went late only to find out that meant 4:00.

I had/have a similar situation. It's really difficult to find ppl, there was an article in the voice about it and it helped maybe a drop..

I can tell you from experience that this is incorrect.
Starting pay out of seminary in Lakewood is between 17-19
Depends on the job, but there are definitely jobs that are offering $22+ starting for girls straight out of seminary

PM me if you still need, we have someone who babysits till 6 and I think has slots
I'll take this opportunity to express how sexist, discriminatory, and just plain wrong it is that pay is explicitly based on gender in this town.

I think he understands. It just helps explain why women in this town can't work 9-5, and why therefore men get paid more than women in the long run.

(There's only so much you can advance when working limited hours/not being available to travel out of town for conferences/shows, etc.)

Discrimination of the politically correct kind does exist, women are paid less and career paths and jobs in a way are as available. But a little closer look would definitely show it's primarily rooted in the way our society is structured.
Also it seems that a lot of the mens starter jobs in lakewood give big raises (10K) within the first year assuming they like their employee. Can anyone concur?

Only 10K?! At the place being discussed on the Dont Swipe for Others thread, the raises came fast and furious. I saw guys getting pay doubled within 6 months.
