Cruel Working World
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that our economy is in bad shape. With record unemployment plaguing Americans, many of us are scrambling to figure out our paths through life. Some of those hit hardest are recent college graduates. There are more of them than ever before, and those that graduated in the midst of the recession are having an incredibly difficult time finding work. But the problems don’t end with finding a job: average working wages have been stagnant for decades, all while we’re forced to work longer hours. But what other choice do students have? Internships have their own host of problems, the biggest of which being that they tend to be unpaid. Unemployment, naturally, is not a desirable lifestyle for most of us. Our only model these days for a workable lifestyle – as sick as it sounds – might just be to become a financial CEO. More realistic and ethical, of course, is heading back to school to work on your master’s. What better excuse than a recession? Believe it or not, you might just find your job opportunities widen.
