This might sting a little but it has to be said.
Have you noticed that our jobs are being outsourced to places like India, Pakistan and Burma for much less pay to people who will work until their fingers bleed?
Have you noticed that many of the only jobs still available in the U.S. are those that require direct service to those who live here?
Let me explain this to you: Ask anyone around who their hardest workers are. They will tell you it is the Mexican guy or the Indian guy or the Italian guy who speaks very little English but has the work ethic of someone who must be a former slave. They will work from dusk until dawn, until you tell them to leave or until they literally pass out.
Now why do you think we are losing American jobs to other countries?
We as Americans ask for higher pay and we don't get even half of the work done. This is in general.
Now I work in fast-food and I know that there aren't that many people who bust their butts even a quarter as much as I do. They actually complain that I am working too hard and making them look bad. That is sad, especially in an economy where there are very limited jobs.
Just a little piece of advice, if you are going to complain because you have no work then maybe you should try giving people a reason to hire you in the first place.
