I agree, how totally sad. To work and provide a living for yourself goes hand in hand with self respect. To loose self respect at such a young age has powerful implications. Nice thread!
Over the past 2 years since I have graduated from high school, I have had a couple of jobs. Mostly working for family friends and a few odd jobs. This summer I struggled hard trying to find a decent job. Had no luck so tried to get a crappy job....... NO LUCK! I was competing with people for a part-time dishwashing JOB!!! $6.50/hour!!! I can't even find slave labor at this point. And yes it very much has had a negative impact on my self-respect. I'm freaking 20 years old, and I really do feel like an adult now. Yet I'm still living with my parents... Odd jobs cant pay rent... too risky! Thinking about college but I dunno what to study! what should I do guys? please give me some advice before I lose my mind!

Well, I'm a long time reader on ATS and this is my first post. This one in particular got to me and caught my attention. I'm 22 and I know what it's like to be broke and unemployed and feel like a piece of worthless # in the process in this cold world.
The only advice I can give if you want to work on your own time and make good money is by playing poker.
I have built up enough skill and experience to see a nice steady profit.. (averaging about $2800 a month.) I taught myself until i got better and better. (I didn't read any books or anything) Since I was laid off a year ago, I figured I would give poker my undivided attention and so far it hasn't let me down. If anyone is interested in getting in on the poker scene and needs lessons, just shoot me an email. I'm on the computer almost everyday
Hey, how are you doing? I was wondering if you could help me with poker? You mentioned under the "The Dead End Kids" thread that you could help? Please, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
