you are slave to the harshest employer of all, the customer
yeah, everybody has a real smart answer, funny it dont work that way on this one
You sound bitter - I am not being smart intentionally
I love what I do and put my all into it - My customers are those who buy what I love to do
Because they see something they like in my work which is my own expression
I guess I am fortunate that I require little money to be happy and am happy to be able to do what I love
Heck I do it for free also
Sorry things have not worked out for you as you may have wanted
Oh no not bitter, bitter isnt the word
see its attitudes, you are an anonymous poster but still I have to be careful not to call you out, so I will say its your Cavalier attitude that things are not working out for me the way I wanted.
A lot of people had worked 30 years even for the same company, their retirement package was a portfolio shrank out to a third if lucky,
talking about people who put years into home ownership then cant pay for them and well good bye....
Its the attitude portrayed that somehow its their own fault.
Quickly blame is established as a psychological self absolution so as to deny the humanity of loss.
Further fueled with a knee jerk statement of "There are $8hr jobs falling off trees and all are too proud to take one.
Mister Poet guy, after one loses everything he has worked hard for there is no pride left.
Is it possible that the $8 hr jobs filling the "Indeed" page are EOE mandatory advertisements for jobs left in a company that slashed jobs and cut payroll to stay in business and the $8 hr jobs are filled in house by the lucky ones that got to stay?
I have been honest with you, be honest with me. what in your 30yr Working Career have you LOST?edit on 20-5-2012 by rebellender because: (no reason given)

Also what makes me feel good is knowing me and my family are taken care of. If the rich or "shareholders" want to rip me off, so be it, there times' coming.
Their times coming? Hahaha... don't make me laugh. The occupy movement has been a miserable failure. There is nothing in the foreseeable future which will change the system to the degree required, you are simply dreaming and praying for something that simply wont happen because you're all too weak to create the change you desire. Look at what you just said, you'll let them royally screw you over just so long as your family is taken care of... they have you by the balls and you don't even realize it, let alone have the courage to do anything about it.edit on 20-5-2012 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)
First of all you don't know me, so let's get that straight. Second I'm not talking about OWS, like you for some reason believe I am. Do you believe that those who continue to commit atrocities will just be able to keep doing it, without accountability? Well I guess what you believe and what I believe are not the same. That's okay though, things change.

The banks and the elite in no way wants to pay people livable wages. If people were getting these wages then they wouldn't need credit as much because they would have the cash to pay for things. This doesn't benefit the banks as much as someone who has to be a slave to the bank because of massive debt.

ETA; did you never anticipate you MIGHT lose your job one day? If you never prepared for this scenario after 10-15-20 years, I do not sympathize.
Did you buy the big mansion? Nice imported car? Barely able to make payments?
Yup, living BEYOND your means.edit on 20-5-2012 by Goldcurrent because: (no reason given)
