2. backronym for "Jail Outside Bars," the idea being that having to perform alienated labor is as oppressive, in its own way, as being in prison. One is in a kind of "jail," even though one is "outside" of any physical "bars" that would force you to stay there.

5.
job
A means by which you have to do a series of repetitive, menial, and sometimes dangerous tasks just to earn an amount of money that is not even enough to pay for rent and bills. 15-30 percent of the money is "collected" by the government, depending on the state, corporation, and country where the work is done. Usually the work is accompanied by a self-centered, non-reasoning, short-term-profit oriented dogfucker called a boss who gets sadistical pleasure from yelling at and even firing the subordinates.
Although it is stated that college students get better paying jobs, that is usually by pure luck, regardless of the number of "connections"
Most college students, however, end up finding jobs at pizza parlors, janitorial services, garbage-collections, burger/taco/deli restaurants, produce-picking at farms, and baggers/stockers at supermarkets.

job
A place that I bust my ass to get to, then all day I put up with a bunch of gossiping no-lives who have nothing better to do with their time, and then i come home feeling dirty, tired, and sorry that i don't have an endless supply of money that comes from a void in space.
