Well what else are you going to do??

From my experience, in this town, the only people who lost their jobs were lazy ***** who didn't deserve the job they had in the first place. It's absolutely unbelievable how many lazy worthless ***** my company has hired and these piles of ---- show up to work late, don't do a god damn thing excpet smoke cigarettes, talk on the phone and sit around, take long breaks, leave early and STILL expect to get top pay and want everything handed to them. That's if they even show up to work. ---- YOU. You want good pay? You want to be treated good? Show up on time, bust your ***, and go home when the day is over. Anything less and you better not wonder why you're not making any money and why you're the first guy to get laid off. It's funny listening to these guys bitch about how they want more money and how they can't pay their bills, yet they're not willing to show up for work and earn their money.

I think I got a little off topic there.

It will pay off in the long run. I'm going on 9 years with my company and if ---- hit the fan I'm 99.9% positive I'd be the last to get laid off. Not that I'm going to ---- off and take advantage of that, but it's nice to know your boss appreciates your hard work.

right on, look back to the great depression, people were killing eachother for jobs, and now people are so ------- lazy it doesn't even matter. I think a huge problem in this country is with our labor force, mainly because we went from being a manufacuring economy to a service overnight. Why do you think china is growing at a rate unlike the world has ever seen before? They ------- produce everything. It's a catch 22 if you think about it. You want to manufacture and export a shitload to stimulate your economy and bring money into your country, but at the same time you want your employees to do well, so it costs more, so now your product costs more, and now it's not as appealing to buy your product. Only problem is we lost our face with that idea and blue collar guys started doing way too well. But who can blame them? With the rise of the IT industry blue collar industries had to ante up (partly due to unions as well), otherwise everyone would want to get into service jobs. And where are we now? Well, those of you who have kids, ask them what they want to do for work. I can assure they're not going to answer "i want to work on a GM assembly line". Perhaps we grew too big too fast with the tech boom, and now we need to find a way out.

The other problem that goes hand in hand with my previous paragraph is large corporations. No i don't think they're the devil but they don't help. Wal mart (just an example) has homogonized commodities to the point where you can't imagine your life without it. What existed before walmart? Mom and pop stores. Anyone remember going to a stationary store to get supplies before staples and all this other bullshit? There are a lot of small businesses in this country, and they are a huge part of this as well, and when they get bullied around by large corporations, everyone suffers. Now i'm not advocating that the government should get more involved than it already has, because after all once you start ------- with the free market economy then you run into a shitload of problems. As for the answer? I'm not sure there is a simple one. For me, it was pick a career where i can't be easily downsized or outsourced. If any of you nogs are interested in the stuff, i highly recommend Thomas Freedman's book The Lexus and the Olive Tree Its about globalization, and it will knock you on your ***

The reason we're in this is because our population are stupid ***** who allow it by ignorance. These are the same people who will cry on the curb when it's time to switch into survival mode. I'll be stabbing their children, and eating their souls to survive.

Luckily, I'm part of the 5% of Americans who won't cry on the curb.

A tanking dollar is also a huge lightning rod for foreign investment, which is sweet.
