    We were at a convention center a few weeks ago and sawone of the areas used as a jobs conference with the Chamber sponsored by some government entity.
    85% of the men there were in suit and tie and many had briefcases.
    Most of the jobs were hands on work such as office assistant at $2500 to start with benefits.
    We know many unemployed that will not accept many types of work unless it is a 9-5 job with benefits.
    Folks, you have to look for what is available, NOT what you want.
    Horse and buggy days are over.

    I get incensed when my students make fun of the cafeteria ladies or the people who work at McDonalds. They will be lucky to find jobs like that when they graduate. Clueless.

    The.biggest amusement co in our area has to hire foreigners because the folks around here won't work for minimum wage. Its less shameful to scam the system.

    Accepting something less than what you deserve is degrading; I choose to stand and fight. If I were responsible for the current crisis, I'd bite the bullet and take what I could get. I'm not responsible, so I'll wait until I find what I consider to be acceptable, thank you very much!

    Who exactly decides what you deserve? What makes you better than anyone else?

    I have the means, so I am going back to school. But I would take anything if I were not in my current place.
    I don't like unemployment either.

    There is nothing "degrading" about honest labor, and if you think there is, then what you "deserve" is to be an unemployed, whinging loser . . . WITHOUT my tax dollars in the form of welfare, thank you very much.

    What the fuck kind of response is that???!!!!!! I decide what I deserve, and if I don't then I work for someone else. Doesn't make him or I any better or worse than you.

    It's very degrading to have to support slackers like this one.
    Last hunting season I hired a young guy to help out on my hunts. I am a hunting/fishing guide. I worked as an engineer for 26 years, and I am not above shoveling a little horse shit. But i don't like putting up with horseshit!
    I had to put up with so much whining i don't know if I would do it again. He even complained about tacking the horses!!!
    It was different when I was young, I worked as a ranch hand starting when I was 12. I didn't dare complain, but now....
    I hired this guy, but he would never make a hand.
