When I lived in Florida,I answered an ad for a job which stated:
To be considered for this job,one must have the following:
Valid license,clean driving record
Own well maintained vehicle and insurance.
possess own tools.
What?,9 bucks an hour,and already in debt from all the # one already has?,and looking for a job?.
I only answered to probe and find out what kind of scum expected so much for so little.
Work in this country is becoming a gaddamned joke,nobody wants to pay anyone anything until they basically work for a long time for basically
nothing,and then still not offer anything like something to look forward to.
Experience speaking here,yes I have plenty,and am getting fed up with being exploited like a beast of burden.
It was better once,I started working when I was 11 years old,when a kid could still get a damned job somewhere.
You know who you can thank for this whole damned mess?,INSURANCE COMPANIES.
Trade a little freedom for security,and you deserve neither,WHO SAID THAT?,WHEN.
Nobody listens,and live too short a life to remember,like what those crazy 100 year old men rant about....
It was better once,you're all screwed unless you wake the hell up.
Oh wait,probably too late.
You fell for the "Take out a loan for college scheme",and now you work at #ing McDonalds.
Next bubble:Edumacational debt.
Yeah,I misspelled it so y'all could understand what I meant.
Sorry for the rant,but nothing will ever get better if all we do is argue about what's wrong here.
The thing that is wrong here is you can work as hard as you want,and still not afford what you need.
Needs and wants are two different things,in case you don't really know the difference.
And I really fear that the fact that most don't know the difference is a big part of the problem.
