Hey – Just Go Get a Job!

My Facebook post a couple of weeks ago – this was On My Mind: 

Susan grows increasingly dismayed, cranky, and hostile over judgments such as “People who are unemployed like being unemployed.” Or, “Go get a job, you could have one if you wanted.” My unemployed friends just love spending every day crafting resumes, networking, competing with at least 100 or more for jobs that include the gamut – from fast food restaurants to professional positions. They enjoy potentially losing their homes, and leaving a community they love, having to make decisions between food on the table and medical care. These are wonderful hardworking people who want to work, make a decent living, stay in the Treasure Valley, and participate in all it has to offer as well as give back with their volunteer time.
