What a completely ridiculous assertion. I don't even know what his solution to this "problem" is supposed to be--presumably he wants the government to pay everyone to just sit at home all the time?

 

No.... it's called Free Enterprise, you know what USA and Canada were built on. Jobs didn't exist 200 years ago.... we apprenticed then ran our own businesses. I don't believe in government handouts. I believe in building a future for yourself and your family. 

 

It's okay if you don't understand the concept most people don't so you fit in just fine.

I find this odd.... but thanks for the perspective.

Yes, it is free enterprise. No one is forcing you to work anywhere. So explain to me how it is bondage?

But I suppose a system where you require long unpaid apprenticeships, thus locking you into one job forever and preventing you from ever being able to actually change careers is much more free. To say nothing of the long, unpaid apprenticeship itself.

If what you want to do requires a masters then so be it--but the purpose of school is not to stall the real world.

This is excellent insight. Too many people run back to school because they're afraid to move out of mommy's house or start taking on the real-world. It's pathetic, and I wouldn't hire someone who stayed in school to get some generalist or fluffy grad. degree with no real explanation for why they did it.
