Due to bad weather in Toulouse, the Canaille Club tavern cancels summer jobs and plunges several young people into embarrassment

the essential
Since 2023, the Canaille Club has been operating with its guinguette formula all year round. Like every season, young people are recruited to work for short periods. This summer, some of them will not work at the tavern because of the unpredictable weather.

“We are pleased to announce that your application has been accepted for the next season of the Canaille Club!”, we can read in one of the emails sent this spring to future seasonal workers, candidates to work in this famous tavern in the City pink. Contracts had to be signed in the weeks following the first days of work. In the end, some of them will not work for the Canaille Club. Not because they changed their mind in the meantime. But, according to the management of this popular restaurant, the start of the season is far from good, due to the weather.

“It’s a big blow to morale”

These young people hoped to start their season on the scheduled dates. But, as July looms, they now find themselves without a summer job. For Oscar, Sidonie, Nathan, Jules and Benjamin*, there were no worries about the start of the season. Seeing that the weather was improving, the five twenty-somethings hoped to be contacted to begin their work period. “At the start, they sent us emails to tell us that the weather was not good and that the period would be postponed,” says Benjamin.

Invited to a training day, they did not expect to be told, after multiple reminders, that their hiring would not take place. “They failed us, that’s all” laments Jules. Two months after the training day, they received an apologetic email from the Canaille Club telling them that because of the weather and having reinforced their teams, these young people would not be part of the summer squad. No “plan B” or at least nothing that could replace the sums they planned to put aside thanks to this work. “We said to ourselves that being stuck there, we wouldn’t look elsewhere,” Nathan reacts. For Benjamin, “it’s a big blow to morale”.

Contacted, the management of the Canaille Club affirms that “anticipating an increase in summer activity requires anticipating potential recruitment”, something it does “every year”. Due to the weather, the tavern was forced, with regret, to “ resize the size of the teams and shift or reduce” its forecasts.
