There is no right to earn a honest living. Never has been. There's no right to a job either.
This is the flaw in peoples heads. I am self employed but have worked as an employee. I know both sides of the table. Let me tell you, if you want to reach something in life, counting on some job to earn a honest living (whatever that means) will not bring you far most of the times.
People complain about "slaving" a 9 to 5? Really? Here we work 8 to 5 or 7 to 5 on a standard basis. Quit it! Do something on your own but stop complaining. Stop blaming politicians about the choices you make in your life. Ask FCD how long his day is.
Go self employed and take some risk, then you will shake your head at everyone complaining that they have a 9-5 and shut off their brain while they walk in and out of the door with zero responsibilities.
Then you will have the luxury to be your own boss, if you're competent at what you do, you will succeed. I worked my ass off the last weeks going way past 60h/weeks and you know what? This week I chill, because I can.
The you is not adressed at you musicmagic, but the readers who complain about their 9-5 but change nothing, complain about their salary but change nothing. Victims.
It sounds like go to college get an education.
not everyone is meant for college.
much less afford an education.
going self employed depending on what you do no matter how good you are at it is not always the best path.
