    [QUOTE]I think Nebb has a point.  Plenty of people go out and only look for jobs that they want.  I see fast food restaurants hiring all the time.  If they are 'too good' to flip some burgers, then that is their own fault.  It doesn't take much to get hired at one (I was hired at 16 with no work experience or HS diploma).

    For older people getting a job at McDonalds is not as easy as it is for a 16-yr old. People want to hire teenagers so they can pay them shiiit.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re:Let's Fight! : You need to get the fucks off of your high horse. Do you realize exactly WHAT state our economy is in at present?  There are plenty of people out there fighting tooth and nail to get a job and despite their best efforts are unable to. A year goes by pretty damn quickly. No one is making a killing off of their welfare or unemployment, they are scraping by. 
    Posted by SGC29[/QUOTE]

    I agree!

    I think it's very easy to pass judgement on folks that apparently "live on the welfare system".  I would guess (as all of us here are recently wed or getting married and often talk about the size of our rings, prices of reception, etc.) that we're not really in that difficult financial boat.  The fact is there's a huge population of people in America that are just doing the best they can.  And for the most part, they're not users and they're not stupid.

    Stepping down off my soapbox now.....

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Let's Fight! : I hate this comparison. A fast food job won't pay the bills. Do you actually have any stats for the highlighted? <strong>From what I understand a lot of people on welfare do actively look for jobs</strong> and are off welfare w/I a year and most people on welfare are not proud of their predicament. It sucks that people abuse the system but the suggested "improvement" to the system is ridiculous and only punishes female welfare recipients.

    Posted by Unpossible[/QUOTE]

    Yeah I wasn't sure how it worked, to be honest. And like Adamar said, it's easy to fake looking for work so I'm curious how you (general) would prove you were out there looking.

    Unemployment is bad back where I grew up. The fast food places and some local grocery stores stopped hiring teenagers for awhile and only hired adults who were laid off. I have no point here, just sharing.

    No but I had a lady from the welfare office come and talk to my class and tell use most people are off welfare within a year. I will lean towards her information since, you know, she works directly with welfare recipients.

    Right- most but not all.  Do you think those who aren't are going out applying for any job available? Probably not.   That is what I was saying.  There are those who do and those who don't.

  • I was trying to find it and can not. It was an old discussion. I may be mistaken, it happens,  but I am pretty sure she said that it wasn't proven that the guy killed himself due to his being gay.

    Yeah... this is what I said in that thread..

    "I agree that there is not murder worthy, but I think thirty days is way too short. I don't think that the people who do this to any gender regardless of their sexuality should get off with little to no punishment. FFS, people have gotten more time for things that never hurt anyone. He will probably spend a couple days, get off for good behavior because of crowding and then request his record to be sealed. Oh, that's showing him. "
