I gotta stop reading the news...

Was reading about some guy that got laid off from the GM factory around these parts. Real sad story, very touching, until I read this:
"He now only receives $337 a week, compared to more than $1000 a week after taxes when he was still employed"
I make a little bit over half that you greedy overpaid lazy SOB. You DESERVE to be out of a job, and the company that was overpaying you for however many years, DESERVES to be bankrupt. He was a regular worker! Not the VP of whatever the fvck. Jesus.
How can anyone feel bad for these people that have barely any education and are pulling ridiculous wages?

What really cracks me up are all those people with the "Out of a job yet? Keep buying import!" stickers. They have no clue how obscenely overpaid these workers are, and why the company is going down the toilet. And I'll bet you none of them drive domestics either, because thanks to the fools supporting them, they can afford to go German.

Oh man, don't even get me started on my company, I'm job hunting right now, but everything I see requires minimum 3 years of experience. Companies are such ****** to new grads it's not even funny, they treat us like slave labour.

Yes, they really do not have a clue. They do not understand, nor do they have the mental capacity to, the concept of globalization and its benefits and consequences. Good ol' GM and Ford would have been out of business years ago if not for foreign markets.

As for the workers, it is unreal what they are paid considering how easy their jobs have become. Nearly everything is automated, guiding a machine into place to screw on five lug nuts is not "work" worthy of $60,000. Flipping burgers at McDonald's for minimum wage is more work than that.

Exactly ... the UAW has been putting nails in the US auto industry coffin for too long. They're in for a rude awakening I'm afraid.

and Granted, you don't get 2/3 of your pay when you are laid off, you don't have your medical insurance paid for the rest of your life. You don't have to wait 2 hrs while the shop steward decides if it's OK for you to turn that extra three screws or should they hire a whole new guy?

This is me right now:

In fact, just thinking about those tender little White Castle burgers with those little, itty-bitty grilled onions that just explode in your mouth like flavor crystals every time you bite into one... just makes me want to burn this mother****er down. Come on, Pookie, let's burn this mother****er down! Come on, Pookie! Let's burn it, Pookie! Let's burn this mother****er down! Let's burn it down! Let's burn it!

i've gotten a few jobs without having the minimum experience... I see it happen alot too... Just apply for it anyway and if they see that you picked up as much experience as the guy whose been there for 5 years in half the time, I'm sure they would pick you over him.

Showing persistence when applying for a job helps alot too! It shows you really want what your going after!
