Third and final bitch of the day.
To me, work is a part of life that we don't enjoy doing, but we have to to make ends meat. Or at least that's what I thought it was until I worked in Cape Breton.
When I was 18 I had my first job cleaning beds at MSVU for $13/h in 2007 during the summer, that was my real first job. Afterwards I worked in Sydney, Nova Scotia and learned first hand extremely valuable Customer Service skills that I brought with me to even to today, anyways, Several years later I still am in between jobs and I found myself working at a call center in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia. I worked there 12 hours day 6 days a week and gave my heart and soul. Not because I wanted to make lots of money (lol at a call center?) but because I loved the work and they let me. Sadly, the reason they let me work all that overtime was because 35% of the staff were on stress leave, and they eventually closed their doors (because, you know, I can't work 24/7 even if i wanted to). Fast forward to today, I've NEVER been without work for more than a month at most. currently I am at a stable job where I earn a modest wage and I plan on being here for a very long time. I received this job not due to my failed education but through my work experience.
My point in short, anyone that "can't find work" is simply not looking. From 18-26 I have NEVER been without work, Even if I didn't like the job I settled because I needed the money and didn't want to go on EI like every other lazy piece of shit in the province. EI is for people who can't work, not that they don't want to. Stress leave is another thing, to me you should be signed out by a psychiatrist or else you are like everyone else and should have to go to work. It's sad how many people sit at home and watch NetFlix off the tax payers dime. For these citizens *I* am the tax payer, not you. Not you who sit at home and bitch and complain about everything going wrong in your life when you don't make a change.
I hate you. I really do, not because you're a horrible person (because you are) but because you don't take any steps to go in the right direction and I am left with the bill. —A person who works for a living
