Something you can't find in America anymore because employers nowadays have set the bar of qualifications way to high. They only want "experienced" people, even for crappy jobs like bagging groceries or taking your food order. The irony is that you can’t gain any experience by not doing these things first. I’m sorry but how does one need experience to bag groceries or work at McDonalds? It used to be that if you had a four-year degree (or even a 2-year degree) from a half-recognized university or college, you could get a really good job and eventually have a promotion and have a really good future. But those days are over. Today they only want people who have internships, Masters Degrees, PHd's and some kind of public involvement for a job that’s not much better than average and pays no more than average. No employer will hire you anymore for even a computer position if you have anything less than a Masters degree, even if you are really knowledgable at computers. Employers nowadays also only want minorities to work for them, thanks to affirmative action in the name of “diversity”, so white people will finally be oppressed. My sister applied only as a Office Assistant (the keyword is Assistant) at a small-to-medium sized company, but they wouldn’t hire her because she didn’t have any professional experience and wasn’t “qualified”—-setting aside the fact that she is very good with computers and office stuff. What they really meant is that she was “too white” to have the job and had to hire a minority who is less qualified or a high-tech professional from India to fit their minority quota. And companies of today wonder why they can’t find good people? Thank the liberals and their “diversity” ilk that emphasizes political correct BS, that has ruined the middle-class. Companies of today put their focus and energy on bogus criteria like a high GPA (even though a high GPA doesn’t constitute being smart) rather than the person’s potential, or what they have to offer, or what they have overcome in this life. What if a person with a 3.5 GPA cheated their way thru college rather than someone who got a 3.0 and worked for it and overcame a lot of obstacles?? Employers of today don’t care because they are superficial bastards who only focus on meaningless crap. Like I said, they wonder why they can’t find quality people anymore.

In that case, I will NEVER have a job because I had a low GPA in college, no internships, no professional experience, no technical know-how, not many useful job skills, was never publicly involved in anything, and am notoriously lazy—and don’t care.

But when you finally manage to find a good job, it’s something you must have to work for a schmuck you hate, to earn money to buy things to impress people you hate even more, so a crook can eventually rob you. It’s all futile, and a complete waste of time!!
Having a job is actually the biggest fraud on the face of planet earth.

Means by which at least 30% of your life is stolen from you to enrich the owners of a company making useless shit that some other poor idiot in a job will buy.

Something that's impossible to find because everyone wants to only hire experienced people even though you can't get experience if no one will hire you, and they're too damned lazy to train you.
Finding a job is such a pain.

A futile effort for financial independence, social acceptance and personal happiness.
My job allows me to pay endless bills, envy my friends and witness my family fall apart

Just Over Broke
by Jackass Of Boss June 13, 2003
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.

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.
"My job sucks the BIG one!"
