Here's another ongoing thread-
And what I thought of the topic-
I know that these current times effect everybody to a different level of degree but as far as the area that I live in, we can't get any menial labor
help to even show up for work. Our local fast food resturants(ie-Taco Bell)
have had to close their doors and only keep the drive-thru open due to nobody showing up to work. Other places of buisnesses that open up in this area
are short lived because they can't find any help.
We have two 'temporary work' services in the area which I surely didn't think would be able to thrive since there was so much need for full time
employment in the area but they did due to the reason that I concider to be sheer laziness! I came to find out that the people that use these services
for employment only do so because they can get paid daily and work whenever their heart desires.
-Here's an article on our schooling systems contributing to the fact
-I love this lady's idea and reasoning
Thirty-six years have passed and America has asked nothing of the 18- to 24-year-old crowd. Home life has changed, too. Very few children are required
anymore to roll up their sleeves and apply elbow grease for the benefit of the family. Parents are busy, kids are overscheduled, many eat what they
want, go to bed when they please, and most don't know the first thing about handling tools, preparing a meal, even running a vacuum cleaner. We have
become a nation of largely apathetic, mostly overweight youth who have few skills beyond running personal electronic devices.
-I also love the term 'mini couch potatoes' in this one
Scientists claim there is an epidemic of 'mini-couch potatoes' at risk of chronic health problems in later life.
-And last but not least, a kid's point of view
Hello, reader! I am a young boy from the United States, and like most other American children such as me, it seems there is nothing I enjoy more than
lazing about from morning until night, eating sweets, and wantonly disrespecting the wishes of my elders.
I don't feel that we have a problem with youth unemployment as we have a problem with youth work ethics. No matter how technology advanced our
society gets, there will always be the need for menial labor.
The work is there, well at least in my neck of the woods.
