I need to rant, so I'm going to - I'm sick of young people advocating laziness as being "their choice in lifestyle" and saying "it has no effect on anyone else, so it's no one's business". It does effect everyone else, let me lay it out for you; You work, you earn money, you spend money, businesses make more money, businesses grow, more jobs are created, more people work, more people earn money, more people spend money, businesses make more money, businesses grow more, more jobs are created ect ect. See how that works? It's what we call a cycle and yes, it's what makes the world go round. Now, what happens when you are lazy and refuse to work, relying instead on your parents and government aid? You don't work, you don't earn money, you don't spend money, businesses lose money, businesses downsize, people lose jobs, less people are earning money, less people are spending money, prices go up to make up the difference, people spending money start spending less to make ends meet, businesses downsize, people lose jobs ect ect. This too is a cycle. "I'm just one person, my actions don't hurt the economy". Yes, yes they do, because while it is true that you are just one person, so all the other's who refuse to work and collectively you are killing the world's economy. You can't sit on your ass playing Xbox and blame the government for the crappy economy because the fact is that you yourself play a huge roll. If you can't work due to illness or disability fine, but if you are able there is no excuse. "There are no jobs out there". There are jobs out there, you just have to actually WORK to get one. You can't ask for it and expect it to come to you, filing out an application and sitting by the phone isn't going to get you anywhere, you have to prove to the company that you want to work. Dress professionally, even for fast food, be clean and well groomed, shine your damn shoes and comb your damn hair when you turn in the application, and give it to the manager, not a cashier. A couple of days later, CALL and check on your application. If they tell you they hadn't had a chance to look at it yet, say "Thank you, I'll call back in a couple of days", then CALL BACK in a couple of days! Do this with 10 companies at least and you WILL get at least one interview within 2 weeks. Stop making excuses and get off your ass and ACTIVELY look for work to fix our economy, stop being a drain on society and on your family and be responsible for yourself. Rant over.
