I Hate Working Too!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a 55 year old women who thought she'd be retired at 60. I have worked since 1980 to 2003 at two really good places. They both moved to the

US and it's been so hard to find a good job ever since. I used to like factory work, as when I went in I had my own station and supplies and was

left on my own. I reached all the quotas and was content. Now that I've had a taste of what's out there, it makes me cringe!!!!!!! It's all about these

"fast paced environments" and assembly lines. I've tried a few of them and can't and don't want to come into that every day. It also seems that we are

tied to these damn temp agencies who take half your wage and give you no health benefits. I'm so glad I've only got 4 more years to work and

won't have to put up with this crap anymore. I just feel sad for the next generation, as it's a jungle out there!

I agree with you especially about feeling sorry for the next couple of generations following. They are working people to early graves.

Hi, I relate to your story but i think i've used my energy quota for writing today, at least right now ... I will get back with you and so I have asked to add you to my circle of friends, The highs and lows, we go thru ....
