Where’ve I been, you ask?
A two-year hiatus perhaps? Well after my mom passed, I just didn’t feel limore people going to school, incurring more debt and have less to show for it.e posting anymore. Didn’t have it in me to continue. Sometimes it’s like that. On fire one moment and cool the next.
I have seen employment landscape change in this short time. And not for the better.
Although there are many more jobs available now then during the recession in the 90s. The increased number of jobs is for lower pay and remains with heavy, heavy workloads. Many of these employees are an unhappy and dissatisfied people.
Changes abound – further progression in technology (as it’s known to do) has speeded up to replace more and more – including jobs.
Often the “9-5” American workers are getting the short stick through continuous off-boarding of jobs/work to other-world countries.
The global competition for jobs is fierce. Tensions are everywhere.
Disgruntled: both young and old. The senior Walmart greeters, our wisest; this is the best that they can get. The young college graduate, who’s incurred enough debt that could have instead supported a family of four for several years, is challenged to find work to justify the exorbitant expense.
Our world is out of control and I can no longer just stand by. I must take a stand.
I, by default two years ago, threw my towel in the ring. No that’s wrong. I didn’t throw it; I let it slip from my hands and didn’t even notice that it had. But now I’m here to take it back.
I realize that this is no time to give up, give in, make due, follow along or just stop paying attention. We can no longer work jobs and live lives that are not fit for “human consumption”.
Yes, I’m here and back in the saddle. Giddyup…
Are you ready?
