I give no stigma to a human having a roof ...a supportive circle of friends/family.

Being in debt is not the goal. A citizen can be contributing to causes or being accountable without having this notion that living on their own makes them "more" responsible.

To the person who said work multiple jobs - Not an option. Many Employers frown upon moonlighting these days. When they find out you aren't 1000% reliant on them, you're fired.

Can you list the percentage of employers who will not allow you to hold a second job?

Only in your mind.

But, keep making mountains out of mole-hills, as it will help develop your undeveloped musculature.

That's exactly right. And, it's not something new, either.

To hear you say you don’t know if you will ever be fully employed sounds to me like you chose an education path not suited to you finding gainful employment in your area. Maybe it’s time to start rethinking what you want to do in life, with a full time job being the focal point.
well i have a health issue that could kill me in a few years so that means it has been tough finding a job i can work for health reasons.Hope that clears it up for you.

The ramifications for this are obviously looming. Factoring in automation, outsourcing, student loans, unaffordable housing, volatile commodities, gender wars and the million other issues that this country has, we are on the brink here.

However, as mentioned here: https://youtu.be/gWc-102Fy4c The single biggest issue looming is that the concentration of underemployed young bachelors is the single biggest indicator of societal collapse. I can envision a Junta style military takeover (the majority of young recruits today are from economic backgrounds where it's impossible to succeed) happening if something drastic is not done soon. It's known that guns and force will be necessary so of course in the country with the most arms, the revolt would always have to originate from within the system.

The collective anger of young Men will soon rise in ALL developed 1st world countries which will destabilize everything. Now that Millennials have seen that both sides of the spectrum cannot be trusted (Both Trump and Obama lied) I suppose it's up to Gen Z on what they want to do. Or has the pesticides in food and drugs in the water lowered their Androgen levels to the point of where they will do nothing?

Eventually this socioeconomic demographic crisis will cause problems for us all and it puts my job at risk. Whatever company I am with will be fighting for a shrinking pie of discretionary income. This will ultimately lead to a contraction of the economy.

The fed is raising rates all while ignoring clear signs WE ARE NOT HOME FREE....But we are actually HOME BOUND AND UNABLE TO MOVE FREELY....

(There's a big difference!)
Your post had great relevancy until you said the Fed is raising rates which no longer is true.

Most professional jobs need you to take permission from the company before you can work anywhere else.
The reason stated in the job offer documents is generally "to avoid conflict of interest".

Hang in there man.

Something that fits your needs may come your way eventually. From your post I've seen, you seem to be pretty well grounded, and you don't have the 'woe is me' attitude toward life. You probably would be better served getting out of your town though, unless your health issue is part of the reason you've stayed around. I'm just saying this based on previous post I've seen of yours around city-data.

You probably won't find a concrete percentage but many jobs on the lower rung, require you to have an 'open' schedule nowadays and change your shift weekly. So while not explicitly telling you, you can't have a second job, they make it difficult in practice. If you don't like it, they'll find someone who will.
