That's not why they don't work.
There are a number of factors.
1. The last few generations were the offspring of the wartime folk. After WW2 job opportunities were abundant and industry was in full force. The
economy was robust. For several generations we enjoyed a plentiful job market, didn't need much education for it and the cost of living was so low
any working fool could own a house, a car and have 3 or 5 kids.
This has changed for a.couple reasons. We aren't post war anymore production is low. There aren't any shortages in the workforce like there used to
be, life expectancy is up and the biggest generation ever still dominates the workforce, cost of living is high. I could go on forever. Bottom line is
we went from a strong economy to a weak one. In the end those who didn't have education or much experience got left behind. The biggest problem with
this though is the younger generations can't get their start and the older generation ( living linger and healthier now) can still work for at least
another 10- 20 years. Most high paying industry jobs are occupied. Many are out of work.
2. Negligent parents. Let's get one thing strait first. There are many good parents out there but they simply aren't spending the time with their
kids like they used to. Since the 80s and the advent of the working families we have experiences changes in the family.structure. none of them are
good. Parents work all day and the kid is left to sitters, daycares, etc. While at home two working parents have so much backlog to do that sitting
down with their kids becomes impossible. Also due to this working couple business we have created the lovely divorce culture.
You have very large numbers of people in the last few generations that weren't taught anything significant or any sort of life skills, many didn't
have emotional support of their parents, many didn't learn how to use emotions and proper conduct in a family setting, many were used as pawns in
custody battles , many have deep psychological issues from abandonment, neglect, or being used as a pawn.
3. The party culture. What more can be said its rammed down our throats daily. I challange you to go an entire day without being subjected to some
form of media that tells you to party till you can't anymore. This is all young people want to do. This is all what the rich do. The media tells you
everyone does, tv shows make it seem like everyone lives the high life, some commercials for alcohol even suggest that doing otherwise is shameful.
This leads to lots of the problems I pointed out in number 2 with child neglect, mostly with younger parents. Lots of people never grow out of this or
never get a handle on it and end up pudding their adult years away om just trying to have fun. I know many who don't work simply because it cuts into
their lifestyle. Much of this behaviour is caused by number 2 or is the leading factor in creating cases of neglect.
The majority of reasons I see people who don't want to work is this
Lazyness, hopelessness, psychological issues, drug/alcohol problems, mental illness, the list can go on forever
bottom line is that these problems all stem from a few key issues.
Kids growing up not properly equipped or with deep unchecked issues
A job market that does not include everyone
A culture of temptations on a scale never before seen.
so why have we reached a point such as.this in history??? Its simple we have gone too many generations now without another major war, industry boom,
or population expansion across a new frontier. These have been the driving factors that have kept humanity out of these ruts throughout history. We
have never actually had to findbways of dealing with these issues before because one of the other three things would eventually happen eliminating the
need to deal with them.
