This isn't a issue with freedom of speech, this is a issue of just being blessed with whatever you get because majority of people are suffering out there without a paycheck. What unemployed person wants to hear or read somebody constantly complaining about something they are trying so hard to get? If anything, those employed people are being insensitive.
I understand what you mean and agree. The people who mindlessly complain about their job. The ones who talk about the work they have to do, even though that is what they signed up for.

He is not talking about people complaining about injustices happening at work like unpaid overtime, no lunches, bullying etc...

So McDonald's isn't even hiring where you live? No cleaning jobs available? No sales jobs?

I come from a city that has one of the worst economies in the U.S. and even they have those types jobs available.

Typical response. "Well *insert fast food places* is hiring!" WRONG.

Trying to remedy the situation and then seeking advice from others, say, on Facebook = Alright.

Whining and complaining without attacking the situation = Unacceptable.

Well I didn't just mention fast food jobs. Retail is always hiring and I always see ads for sales jobs.

Don't act like there aren't any jobs out there. They might not pay much or be in a location that you like, but they are out there.

Ok, we feel sorry for you. You can end this thread now.


Got a lawn mower? Make some flyers and see if people want their grass cut. A lot of people around here actually make a good living doing it around here.

Know any elderly people? Ask them if they need someone to grocery shop for them for a fee.

Good with computers? Make flyers and ask people if they ever need computer work to call you.

Try to come up with something to make a little cash until you find a job.

I know how you feel, my job is ending in 3wks and despair has already set in. However, if a job sucks, people have a right to complain even if they are blessed.
You're just emotional right now because you're suffering.
I understand, i really do.

That's because really aren't. It's not like I live in a big city where I have many options, there's hardly any options at all.

Are you THAT clueless that you think there's just a bunch of jobs in abundance?

You're everything that's wrong in society. It's cool for folks to crap on unemployed people, but when unemployed people do it to people who whine about their jobs it's "wrong."

Move along...

I'm not only emotional because I'm suffering, I'm just saying that things could be A LOT worse right now for folks who have jobs that are paying their bills, putting food on the talbe, and being able to take care of the basic necessities in life.
