I Don't Want To Work Anymore... It's Worthless

Don't judge me wrong. I'm not lazy or waiting for handouts. The reasons why I don't want to work anymore besides the health burden it carries its because a lot of things have changed over the years. I thought that if you work hard like show up on time and do what they told, follow instructions and go above and beyond you're going to "climb the ladder" maybe become a manager someday or something. But in the end, you're stuck on doing the same job or different types of job for years to then later the management cut your hours of be lay off.

I have experienced a lot of those things and frankly I don't have a house, or a car because the money isn't enough. I show up when others doesn't bother to show up or I show up on call. And I rarely take vacations because I don't have money for it either. Right now, I'm in the point of just saying I'm sorry I'm tired of working to survive. I want to enjoy life. I don't want to do something I don't want to do because of the money factor. Everything needs money and I hate it. I hate having a job that was full time to then changing it to part time and even though I was named the employee of the month, it always goes to deaf ears. Employers doesn't consider their employees valuable anymore, it's more like slaves and if they demand more, they're kicked out. That's what's bothers me.

yup, same here. you question why we are all doing this for. the only way to make it through is to give your work a purpose, and place a dear significant value on it, like helping other people or contributing to society. you have to hold those values dear and give them importance, front desk greeters need to put a smile on to welcome visitors, everyone has a role, each with its own importance

I think two thirds of the American workforce feels like you do. And I don't know of anyone who honestly believes that it's hard work that gets you ahead. We all know it's all about connections.

sometimes you just gotta fo what u gotta do........know what I mean

"tired of working to survive" i hear ya! this is my 30th year of working and i'm well tired of it
