Jobs, employers and the unemployment check

To those that read.
I have been looking at our economy and specifically jobs for several months and I have seen some scary things. First, Have you ever noticed how before in the media, and in everyday life you’ve heard people ridicule people who dig ditches, wash dishes, flip hamburgers, any menial job,(I work’em) to the point that a lot of Americans won’t do those jobs, they’re tired of being cut down and humiliated. This maybe one of the reason people from other countries like Mexico has come into the US to take those jobs. They haven’t been conditioned by others to look down on those jobs or the people that do them. But what do you hear from people that would cut down those that wouldn’t take those jobs?“Hold up your head and flip those burgers”.
Second, I’m still trying to find out how many mansions have been built on an unemployment check! All you hear is politicians and usually people with jobs belittling those that are on a measly unemployment check that them and their family struggle to make ends meet wanting work but not finding it.
And now I’m finding out that employers won’t hire people that don’t have a job! That’s Evil! When a man comes to you wanting to work and is qualified for the job put him to work!
All I hear is,“Blame Obama, blame the Congress, blame the republicans, blame the democrats”. Even though they are all partly to blame for their meddling with the job market and ruining it, Employers that would hold back a job from a person with a wife and kids because he is either on unemployment or not working Should be ashamed of themselves! Hire them!
They are worse than those politicians.
I’ve seen those people that don’t want to work that are on unemployment. But for the most part that is far and in between what I’ve seen as I set filling out applications and a line of people go around the block.
I saw a guy the other day talking to a friend, He was asked if he had found a job yet he told him as long as the check was coming in he wasn’t looking for a job. People like that are out there, but they aren’t the ones going to employers with their hat in their hand just trying to take care of the families and being turned down because they don’t have a job!
So what does this mean? As a country we’re in trouble in more ways than one. Compassionate conservatism isn’t working and Redistribution of wealth destroys what’s left. You could call on God, but he doesn’t go where he’s not wanted. And welfare is like putting casts on both arms when your legs are broke. Thanks for reading now give me a job!
With my hat in my hand,
Jeff Gilbert
