I want to live in this fantasy world where there are unlimited jobs for people to be in. Rather than the real world where there are limited amount of job slots for a large number of qualified applicants.
I do have empathy for the twenty somethings of today. I was lucky to be in one of those times where jobs were literally everywhere. I was hired as a computer programmer....and had never programmed anything. I was only half way thru an Assoc Degree in Electronic Engineering. My only job experience was working on a carrier flight deck. I still work with the same Co.
For many years I never knew anyone who could not get a good job. Some got laid-off due to reduction in force or closings, but they took unemployment for a month or two and got another job. At worst they lost their
built up vacation time (like dropping from 4 wks back to 2 wks etc...).
Now days....it ain't that way.
Jobs and economies ebb and flow....but right now is a less than optimal time to for younger folks.
