In all my years, I have quit several jobs, got fired from one or two, and NEVER ever had trouble finding another job. It may havae been less money, more work, but work was the name of life.

Now come on, if you think that someone out 99 weeks or even 27 weeks wants to work you believe in the tooth fairy. I have picked up and moved all over the u.s. to support my family.

So please , no bleeding heart tears from this worker.

There was always a dollar under MY pillow Mick there are lots of reasons people don't move all over the country in search of a Job, elderly parents,sick child and yes some are just unmotivated, but should that be an disqualifier for hiring them? Maybe to you, not for me, I was out of work for a year due to illness, stuff happens. I quit a job 70 miles from home so I could be close by while my Dad was in critical condition, I took a $40k cut in pay to do it. Everyone has their own issues, it's not up to us decide what is right for them. I take care of me and mine and share a bit with the less fortunate JMO

And you think an owner should be prepared to deal with those problems that has nothing to do with him? Not me. Ill take a worker instead of an excuser.

The way the question was phrased, the only reason for hiring seemed to be out of sympathy for the applicants length of unemployment. I, being the owner of a specialty shop that requires special skills, would not consider hiring an applicant who did not posess these skills, regardless of how long he has been out of work.

Exactly, it's the skills and interview that determines who gets the job.

There are those that refuse to work ... ask most any teen to rake up a few leaves for 10 bucks ... They’ll tell you to get lost , or worse ...
Certain cultures have been receiving “assistance “ for so long , they think they are entitled to it ... I do believe in helping the Old and disabled .... but for the able bodied, who can , but refuse to work ....

Maybe he means "The AARP Culture".
Their TV ads right now are asking their "50 million"(their numbers, not mine) members to write whiny letters to their Congressmen about not reducing any Geezer Entitlements...

Are you really saying that CEO's and executives are really worth 500 devoted employees making $50,000 a year?
I'd rather pay $35 million to the CEO who is responsible for thousands of jobs, than $35 million to 1 athlete or $20 million plus to an actor for 1 movie. Why are the CEO's the bad guys and the athlete, actor or people like Oprah not? I have no problem with any of them making as much money as the market will bear.

I would rather be paid by what I produce than the same hourly rate as everyone else around me.

I worked all my life and paid into SS and Medicare. What "entitlements" are you talking about? I don't belong to AARP and never will.
