Sure, and how do you think guys like me can finance their study when they earn less than minimum wage?
I have no idea what courses and education systems your Dutch government provide.
In Ireland I see no reason why anyone should not have had training at least, as the government will pay for your education and you get grants, not much money but enough.
And the older you get the easier it is.
I know quite a few people who have done and are doing this, they also find part time imployment if possible. I myself worked nights in McDonalds the first year of college and cleaned taxis for the other years and jobs were probably equally as scarce in Ireland at that time as they are now.
What's your point Sean?
My point is that you started to answer this thread without knowing what you are talking about because you had not seen the whole documentary.
I've worked a lot harder than any of those foreigners I've seen in the video. (I've cut three tons of carrots once, and I can assure you that carrots are much and much tougher to cut.) Working shifts of twelve hours? How about working shifts of eighteen hours?
As I have said I have worked in this town and other factories in England and other countries, if you want to measure who is the harder worker?
I've done that aswell, for less than minimum wage!
I have reported one company for their illegal practices.
I know a lot of Dutch guys who'd be there an hour before work starts, just to familiarize themselves with the workplace and their tasks. (I'm ex-military, so don't tell me I don't have discipline.)
Where did I say you didn't have disapline? where did I say anything about you?
You are taking this as if i am personally attacking you, I am not.
Education? I'm all ears, but everywhere I go I get none the wiser, and I certainly can't finance a study all by myself when I'm earning less than minimum wage sometimes! So yes, advice would be more than welcome!
Read above, has the Dutch government no education or training programs for people exactly in your situation?
"Education" means "western-style education" only. It is not the only one that existed.
So show me another valid form of education, please.
Watching videos like these really, really make me sick to my stomach. But please do tell. Enlighten me. (Apparantly I'm too stupid.)
Again taking this personally.
You are anything but stupid, we all know this.
