Its definitely not age discrimination, unless people in England don't really care about the value of experience. As to dropping out of college at 17

It's called slavery. There is no alternative, if you stop for a moment, you end in the streets unless you aren't paying for your place of residence.
The whole concept of "earning a living" is extremely stupid and backwards in this age.

What are we working for?!?!
Enough gas money to get back & forth between work and home.
Rent money in order to have a place to sleep in between shifts.
And food money so we have enough energy to make it through the work shift.
College is not the answer anymore so you can count yourself lucky for dropping out early because most people who do have a degree end up doing the same work as you while paying of a huge debt.
To add salt to the wounds, I've been training a new member of staff who works on the side and was officially unemployed for two years prior to gaining this current position.
I have more brain cells than him, so to speak, why the hell is he picking up £22,000 per annum, on top of his ILLEGAL part time work?!

While some holidays have become over-commercialized, the blame rests solely with the person who gets sucked into spending more money than they have on things they don't need.

C'mon seriously? I think it's a bit unfair to blame the consumer, when we are raised in an economic system that teaches us that that is normality.

You instead blame something you will not be able to change - does it help you? All you can do is control your own behaviour. You clearly are aware of the problems of consumerism - don't fall for it anymore, just buy what you NEED, not what they tell you you need..
