Young people and jobs


Well its graduation time and there will thousands of young people getting their final diploma's/degrees this week. I wish them well and hope they have made good choices in their educational achievments. It is as tough as nails out here finding a rewarding job with a decent salary with advancement potential especially for "no experience" applicants. . ....

The trend now seems to be hiring temps and job service employees while big corporations like HP just drops 17,000 employees like they were bad apples, all to pick up a billion dollars more profit annually. .

I wonder what part of, " if our corporations keep shedding employees for more profit, there will be no one in America to buy their products" do they not understand ? China is producing enough products to furnish all of Europe and Asia and probaly Africa and South America ,and the Antartica's.

Same thing I always wondered about Walmart. They keep their wages so low that their employees can't afford to buy from them.

Ahh I think you have your stereotypes a little mixed up there. You might want to go read your "how to be a racist homophobe" handbook and try that again.

I won't comment on the gay part, but anyone who wears their pants around their knees will have a hard time finding a job anywhere. If they have to have one hand holding up their pants, how can they carry anythng. Besides, I want my customers to get a good first impression.

No pants around the knees, no weird haircuts, no piercings, no rude tattoos. Clean clothes and people are a must. No smoking, No foul language.

Sorry if that leaves out most of the young people.

Not sure about the racist thing. I see those swishy ones in white, black, olive and other colors in-between.
As for the gay thing, I have many gay friends, one or two were employees. They didn't have any need to drop their britches around me or my clients to swish around and flaunt it. They were open and walked like men. The gay women I know and love also walk normally without any weird flaunting either.
As for the homophobia, I've been reformed for many years on that score.

There is still the possibility they aren't gay. Maybe their parents are to blame for not teaching them how to wear their pants? Maybe. Either way, I reckon they'll have to stay unemployed as far as I'm concerned.

Pants "around the knees" (hanging below their rear ends) originated in prison, meant the guy was willing to take you know what where the sun don't shine.

How did that turn into some sort of fashion statement? I don't get it.

My wife says I am just a dinosaur. I look at my grandkids -nieces/nephews with baggy pants, multicolored hair, steel pins in their lips and other orifices and I just go ballistic inwardly....

She tells me to just chill out as it is just a "stage" all young people go through and they will grow up and away from it. ...

Hmmm, I noticed a 60 something dude in front of me today at the store with a ponytail, tats, steel pins, baggy pants, and tattered shoes. I think my wife is sheeting me.

It may be best to try and not judge people in their efforts for self expression. Decide on who you like by what comes out of their mouths and their level of integrity.
Really, who cares what others look like or do if it does not hurt you.

Maybe some women find 60 yr old men with ponytails attractive

I don't look in on these political or philosophical threads--

However---I did just now---what are you all talking about?

There are lots of different kinds of folks in the world---choose the best and leave the rest alone---

She's right. At 14 years old I got a mowalk which throughout the years was blue and then red and then black and all spectrums of the rainbow, piereced my nose (bullring, in the middle), had 9 holes in my ears and started collecting tattooes (of which I now have 25) and wore leather jackets with metal studs and 14 hole boots. I was an immitation of a British hardcore punk rocker.

One day at 21 years of age I woke up and thought to myself, "I'm a mutha friggin' idiot", cut the hair and quickly got a normal human being's wardrobe. I've never looked back.

Young people ( I say young, I'm 35) are just searching for themselves, nothing more. And if they just so happen to find themselves being that tattooed and pierced person forever than so be it, others could be so lucky as they're lost for life.

Take note of the smiley face in my post please, .....


Since you brought it up, why do men wear pony tails ? Inquiring minds need to know these things ?

Good point and a fact...

The hair colors, clothes, metal pins and hair design can be changed as ones hormones do, but those ink tats ? Not so easy. And they do make a difference when its time to go out in the world and compete with others and co-exist. Sometimes positively and sometimes negatively. jmo

Men put their hair in pony tails to keep it off their faces when they are working, just like everybody else.
