Why so many threads saying "Where the Stimulus at," but not ONE saying Who's hiring?"
I don't post threads often, but I'm curious.

Every time I come to GLP, I see a never ending stream of "Where's my stimulus check" posts, finger pointing that Trump is holding it up, or Pelosi is holding it up, or USPS or WHATEVE the case may be.

I have not once, not EVER, seen a post that goes like this...

"Hi! With everything going sideways, I'm in need of money and the economy is all messed up right now. Does anybody know who's hiring in <insert your State or Province here> and how to get in touch with them, or the URL for regional job banks?"

Just curious - I understand that some people are really hurting, and I'm trying to help locally where I can. I'm just wondering why the focus seems to be on free government money, rather than getting back on our own two feet and making our OWN economic recovery?

As I've mentioned before, the businesses that I see closing, other than in the entertainment sector, are only closing because they CANNOT FIND WORKERS willing to hire on, even with good wages and bonuses. People LITERALLY saying "I'd rather keep getting CERB (Canadian Free Shit money) then make a bit more for working... no thanks!"

Just wondering what logic propels the constant questions about checks, rather than about jobs.

I work for myself.

I like it a lot more than when I had a job.

Working for yourself makes you have to think a lot more than just working a job for someone else.

Thinking is a very good thing. Try it sometime, wage slaves.

100% true, and if you can do it, awesome! I know several people that have been able to start good businesses since COVID, enough income to help their families and stay afloat without having to take the handout for long, if at all.

Good call.

cheers

Construction workers are in short supply here in Alaska. People just do not want to work. Hiring signs up in many buisnesss besides construction too.

Lazy people just want a hand out it seems. But if you want to work there are jobs.

Tradesmen like plumbers and electricians, sheet metal and painters drywall companies are all looking for workers. And the pay is pretty good too.

Exactly what I'm seeing. Was talking with a friend today, he's trying desperately to get people to help him with some work, willing to pay REALLY good money under the table - nope. People LITERALLY saying meh, you're already paying me - you pay taxed LOLOL stupid old man.

Lots of folk here looking for workers, lots of unemployed people - yet nobody looking for a job?

We had a TON of fishing boats that just COULD NOT hire deckhands and fishermen this year - and we're talking affering a percentage of catch, not just fair wage (which is HUGE on these boats.)

You find that up there? (Not that I'm assuming you're on the coast, just curious.)

YOU'RE calling on Jesus after your childish little rant in your silly "reincarnation" thread? Oh, kid, you're so unconnected - no wonder you can barely manage a subpar codemonkey job at the lowest level.

And yeah, go on and keep projecting - but don't forget to have your Mom give you your shots, eh?


But then, for a piece like you to actually be working (if we choose to believe you, which is not usually a good bet) is unusual, so there's that.

Go play, kid.

SO obsessed with those that have power over you, being so powerless. Go bother some other thread, I'm done with you :) You aren't even worth bothering with - notice I've been leaving you to the Croc? He has fun showing people exactly what you are - I can no longer be bothered.

 Quoting: KimJungUn


Interesting - Where I'm at most places that are hiring, or most people hiring for personal work stuff, aren't requiring masks of any sort.

Sure, restaurants and stuff, the ones that are open, but that's a very small percentage. Must be different where you're at.

And I don't know - if I had to choose between feeding my family and wearing a mask, I'd have to put the friggin' mask on - ugh. Having the luxury to not work isn't an option for many.

Thanks for sharing!

Because even if you are hired, your new job is hanging by a thread. Everyone knows that.
