hi friends

How to get a job as a unskilled workers without the need for language in basel and Switzerland?
Swiss Miss on Oct 26, 2019:
Hello everybody!
A good way to eat healthy and less expensive is the Manora Restaurant (Manor Department store) in Basel, everything is fresh they offer a great selection. This also goes for the Coop and Migros Restaurants.
Those Restaurants are all over in Switzerland, check out train stations also-Enjoy and good luck!
