Letter: Get a job, any job

May 18, 2014 

There is one thing about people complaining about jobs that really bothers me. There are thousands of jobs out there that require manual labor, farming is a great example there are so many jobs open during. Harvest but no one wants to work in the conditions because it's not good enough for them. Any job is better than no job. You have to start somewhere.

Big farms are starting to bring in thousands of people from foreign countries to fill empty spots that are needed and we still are complaining. Maybe the job is crappy but it's a better-paying job than having no job.

People need to get off their butts and do something rather than complain about not having a job; go out there and get one, even if it is something you don't want to do. Life isn't fair and you have to go where it takes you unless you do something to change that.
