I'm not defending it the nature of warehouse or factory work, I've been there done that. When I graduated high school I was working third shift and
first shift back to back. That's almost an entire day working. I was basically working a whole day, and sleeping a whole day. It was alright for a
little while. I was making a lot of money for my age despite only making ten dollars an hour. After a couple of months I felt like #. So, I left. I
went and started working in restaurants making # money. So, then I started doing the whole bartending thing and made some decent money. Then, I got

keep being miserable or take a chance and do something else more meaningful, and yet they never would leave.
People stay in those jobs because they have no drive. They don't want anything better. If they did they would go and do it. They have no goals, no
drive, no vision. They can't think for themselves.
