There Are Jobs Out Here

Reporters keep mentioning how the economy is getting better and how more jobs are being created over time. Hey look! I am no expert and or don’t hold a degree in business or economics. But I can tell one thing… there are a lot of jobs out there. The way that I look at it is, that “some people” are more interested in finding jobs in a specific field, salary rate or both, which I find crazy in this economic day and age. The reason that I feel like that is, because even though I went to college, I never graduated. So what I am trying to say is, that throughout the years, I have held a lot of different jobs, from factory work to customer service representative.

My whole point is, that with a family to feed and bills to pay, I have never been picky when it comes to finding work. Since I don’t have a college degree, I just have to take whatever work comes along. You see, in my neighborhood, I’ve seen some young people complaining about the lack of jobs. But to be honest with you, the one thing that community activist and lawmakers don’t dare to say is, that there are jobs in my community, it’s just that they don’t pay what the young people “expect to be paid for the work that they perform”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m proud of the young people who I see working in fast food joints and other businesses everyday in my neighborhood. I know what it is like, because I went through that. It’s just the handful that want to be lazy asses, that bother me. I know this, because I personally know a couple of them.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!

Big Wigs Are Out Of Touch

Ever since I dropped out of high school at the age of about sixteen years old and started working in factories, I learned a lot about how the big wigs think and work in corporations. The one thing that I came to realize is, that they are out of touch with their employees and customers. What do I mean? Well, for one, most big wigs have never ever in their entire life, done hard manual labor like the rest of us. If they would have, then they would appreciate their employees more. On another hand, they tend to worry more about what it is good for the company, than what their customers actually need, want and would pay for. In other words, the big wigs, really need to get their heads out of their assholes and connect with reality.

As an employee, I can say that many, many, many times, I was underappreciated. I’m not saying that I should have received the employee of the month award for just doing my job. But I can tell you, that when I was given more work and responsibilities, my paycheck stayed the same. Even after I was promised a pay raise for taking on more responsibilities, nothing changed. As a customer, I look at how so many companies are more about profits than providing good products and services. You have to understand, that I don’t get a weekly paycheck just for sitting down on my ass doing nothing, I earn my money the honest way. So for me to pay for something that sucks, it doesn’t make sense at all. Meanwhile the top executives are making a lot of money, their employees  and customers are suffering. To be honest, top executives need to get out there and get to know their employees and their customers, before making stupid decisions.
