This is an overdramatized example, but once you get over the emotion in the statement, it's simple, again, it's not the mother's responsibility to put her kids through college.
Overdramatized? We have food-banks here, for people who live on benefits, because they can't afford to buy food for most days of the week! How the hell do you think they'll be able to give their kids a future? In your world people don't have responsibilities. In your world it's the child's fault it's born. In your world, a thirteen year old, with no legal responsibilities, is responsible for his or her own education, right? (I think you need to get your head examined, really!)
It's an option. There are ways of financing your own education. Besides, honestly, if you can't support yourself and have to live on welfare, you shouldn't have kids.
Ever heard of widows? Divorce? In your world, situations don't change, right? You're prepared for the unexpected. (I forgot, you're all-knowing, my bad!) Just like people were expecting that airplane in the twin towers when they were working. Just like people know they will get an accident tomorrow, which will render them jobless for the rest of their lives. Just like some people are expecting to get fired tomorrow. Or like how someone expects to end up in a wheelchair because he was expecting an armed burglar in his home who shot him! Yeah. Be prepared.
how do you think it happens in other countries?
Basically the same.
do you think you can get a good job right after high school in the US?
No, but you should be able to find atleast a few jobs, instead of having to look at illegal Mexicans who work for a few nickles.
you need to be resourceful about finding a job, going to school and everything else in life.
Like I've said. I'm retarded. I don't understand this.
so what's your solution? give up? hit mommy and daddy for cash? or the government? yes, the creative and strong-willed and resourceful get ahead. everyone else works minimum wage jobs.
No, less and less people succeed at finding a manufacturing job, or a minimum wage job, but I guess you and your conservative buddies can whine some more about having to pay taxes for all those damn ''slackers''. You're so poor. You're having such a hard time with your, and I quote someone else here; Six figures. (Six figures and still wasting your time on this forum? I don't think so buddy!)
college kids without significant experience have no value.
Did you have experience when you left college? (Only a little, just like every other college kid!) How will college kids ever gain experience if they, and I quote, have no value?
I could hire you if you had experience and the know how.
It doesn't work like that in most companies. People want to see qualifications.
In Poland it was for free.
Consider yourself lucky then, instead of behaving as if you're better than someone else who simply can't afford it.
