I wrote/told Mr. Rafferty (some Canadian Minister) to go F**k himself. Sorry, it was one of those days. I rarely swear.
His comparison to his jobs as a referee and taxi driver are what people like myself are squawking about. Did he have to re-locate when he got those jobs? I doubt it. Now he expects people to leave the city/town they live in and family and friends to do so.
I support and even wrote on one site that Canadians who can should re-locate in order to find employment. But to expect seniors and those with disabilities to do so is pushing it too far. When he retires he will have a golden egg waiting for him and not be expected to go work elsewhere!
One has to know that in many of those out of reach places, the only entertainments found are the bottle and weed. Those few young ladies working the red light district trades can make a fortune in those towns. Not recommended. Rent and food costs are also very high.
If Mr. Rafferty loses the next election, he can always apply at the Tim Horton around the corner. They are looking for full-time workers at the moment. Mind you with his present salary and Golden Pension he has he will be very comfortable till he dies.
The biggest difference between the temporary referee and taxi driving jobs is that many people will not find employment in their field of expertise soon. These jobs will end up as their lively hood for life Jobs are contracted out elsewhere around the world. I also drove a cab and worked in a laundry facility loading and emptying washers and dryers, but not like then one now must keep what they can get. Never mind owning a house, properties are now owned by fewer and fewer people and investors.
I now work as a store clerk (Royal Home Hardware) even though I know that I am worth more than most people on the planet. It is not money that I care about but the Future health and all the inhabitants of this planet. What I do is watch for thieves, help people with their problems, explain the difference between a nail and a screw, and try to deviate people from buying/using chemicals for their clogged sinks and toilets.
I see my work as temporary. Many others will be stuck in what they can get. Maybe myself as well.
I feel as if I am wasting my time/life away.
I am worthy of much more just as many others on this planet stuck in Mcjobs. The dirty and measly work has to be performed and done by someone! Let me do my five years then hopefully I’ll move on to where I can better serve Mankind.
Someone wrote that I should be in jail for the things that I’ve written. Well, let them try. I can justify all that I wrote as being valid considering the circumstances Mankind finds itself in.
p.s. Relocating would be easy for me as I have few friends and family nearby. Mind you my body is no longer in it’s prime and would not be able to do what I could have 3o years ago. My mind is still very alive! Oh, I know having no edumacation cerfiticates does not qualify me for much in the pen pushing keyboarding head leading departments!
One needs qualification if one wants to teach or lead! Such is our world today.
