Entitlement? None here.
The media insists that the Occupy movement people feel they’re entitled to something.
I think the media is trying to pull the wool over people’s eyes.
Case in point – my friend Jenn. In her own words:
Last week I was rejected for a contract position as a Technical Marketer because I was too technical and do not have enough experience in marketing. Today I was rejected for a technical writing contract position at the same company because I’m not technical enough. Insult, meet injury. Salt, meet wound. I mean, really?
I’ve gone back to school to remedy my lack of a degree. I apply for everything that the Unemployment Insurance people deem suitable. I follow all their rules and recommendations. I apply for work at my dentist, places my children go to play, and places that pay less than my unemployment checks give me, because I just want to work.
She’s doing her darndest. And it’s not working. And Unemployment insurance does not last forever.
It’s people like Jenn who are occupying. But Jenn’s not one of them. She’s just looking for work in Seattle. Can you help her out?
