Media's prime example of growing jobs is a McDonald's job. How is that even a positive example? It's a job yes, when many need jobs. But to solely
base that on one type of job, in the lower income bracket(maybe would minus the "higher" up positions, depending on availability). As well as a job,
stated in the article, that will be well sought after because it's the only one that is growing. Is misleading to conclude that jobs are growing.
Though,on a job that averages $15 thousand or so a year, you're near below poverty(11,000 a year and under). That kind of job is not meant to solely
survive on, esp., if you're the only one working in a family. Fast food jobs and other low wage jobs such as "bag boys" were known as teenage jobs,
for those in HS or just out of it learning employment. If adults can't even find jobs, how are teenagers ever going to be able to to have a start
somewhere? I hear there's a lot of jobs won't hire people who have not worked for 6+ months. Jobs that once used to be a start for some, can't
even be touched. Forget even going to college beyond Community College, grants only take you so far. If your parents can't afford to help and
you're unemployed, you're way out of luck. Sad because this upcoming generation seems very bright, with no where to go.
