    What To Do.

    I was applying for a job in this retail store when I saw a 'shoplifter'. My first instinct was to find the store manager, but I stopped myself. I thought that perhaps this person was out of work too, and had been for a long time. Perhaps desperation had let her to break the law...

    Where's The Pride?

    I have not had a "real" job since 2002. I left my job to build my house. It was beautiful but I lost everything including any respect I had for my husband.  We divorced and I had to find something to bring in money.  In 2006, I was able to make $20,000 in 3 months of work as an...

    I want money so I can buy things without doing

    petty jobs. I can't actually find a job because no one will hire me at this stage and it annoys me. I like to do chores like cutting grass but it's not enough honestly. I'm talking about an actual job with an employer, and fellow employees.

    I'm 22 and I've never had a legitimate job.

    I've applied endlessly and gone to so many interviews, but I just get rejected all the time. I know I interview terribly, but I'm great with customers and have a lot of skill, why can't someone just cut me a break.
