This content is user submitted and not an official statement

he is unable to get a job

possibly due to his opposition to bombing which even the strongesty of posters are unwilling to speak on.

We don't know

but if you want to stop him

remind him constant of his lack of power

and the contempt the people should have of him

Until people have time to fight ...they will be too busy working three jobs to pay rent. This issue relates directly to why people aren't protesting war. Keep the masses busy. That is working for them. I don't think poor people are deadbeats...I was mocking Shule.

Our contempt should be directed at the corrupt people who did this to us. You're not the one who perpetrated these crimes on us, Matt. The world would be a lot better place, if all of us had your humanity.

Fyi http://antiwar.com/ and we value your Anti-War voice here Matty. Also would volunteering help your job search, skills and opportunities? If you think possibly so and agree that unemployment can be very socially isolating, then fyi... http://www.volunteermatch.org/search/index.jsp?r=msa&l=92199 and also: http://www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/cob/volunteer.html and http://www.sandiego.gov/volunteer-program/ + http://sandiegofoodbank.org/volunteer/ Spring has sprung. Summer on its way.Good luck& Matt Holck is NOT a "deadbeat", he cares about the world. He loves and is loved. He's a 100% human.

Agree too many people feel like this economy is a reflection on themselves and a failure to thrive. You aren't alone...my husband was depressed and ready to string himself up when he lost his job ...he can't shake that feeling like he is inferior ...he had to settle for back breaking stuff that frankly is just as hopeless...but you are smart and you have skills Matt...and the we're all getting tired of living this way. It is a matter of time before the worm turns...it is gonna get better. Don't lose hope.

Not a matter of if you will be out of work but when. Times have changed and we are all going through it. When the next round of layoffs start...there will be openings for others to get in..." job sharing"

"'Paid-what-you’re-worth' Is a Dangerous Myth" by Robert Reich - (and it's) ''A fundamentally misleading meritocracy myth.'' http://www.nationofchange.org/paid-what-you-re-worth-myth-1394803915 I think that you'll find that interesting. Extract =

''Fifty years ago, when General Motors was the largest employer in America, the typical GM worker got paid $35 an hour in today’s dollars. Today, America’s largest employer is Walmart, and the typical Walmart workers earns $8.80 an hour.

''The reason Wall Street bankers got fat paychecks plus a total of $26.7 billion in bonuses last year wasn’t because they worked so much harder or were so much more clever or insightful than most other Americans. They cleaned up because they happen to work in institutions — big Wall Street banks — that hold a privileged place in the American political economy.

''And why, exactly, do these institutions continue to have such privileges? Why hasn’t Congress used the antitrust laws to cut them down to size so they’re not too big to fail, or at least taxed away their hidden subsidy (which, after all, results from their taxpayer-financed bailout)?''

employment is socially restrictive unless you converse with dishes

By the way you are working the same section 8 as the people you like to insult. You do it and it is fair to take advantage of the offerings...the poor do it and they are deadbeats. Double standard? And it actually gets you permanently off the grind while it traps them on it. The rich are benefiting far more from section 8 than the poor. Fixing supply and creating demand so people are forced on section 8 ..

Matt got tired of seeing the word rape misused

M@tty, elf's reply above is for you and us all. I agree with what she says and would add that the simple act of growing things - fruit, vegetables or flowers.... can connect us to what is real, true and beautiful in this world - like no temporary wage-slave contract ever can. You don't have a garden or land? Fk it! Just go seed and plant and tend and nurture publicland and verges and do try to let people see you do it and share the produce and give it away. + fyi: http://www.guerrillagardening.org/ggtips.html Good Luck Matt.

I hold you in no greater contempt than those that won't vote for people that raise taxes or supports gun control.

I can't find a perfect apple pie either, of course it don't keep me from eating apple pie.

I don't spend too much time talking to people about how the government is going to take their guns away either, single issue voters just give the 1% what they want for the most part.

the US government gives pout guns to foreign countries

no one I know owns a gun

Sure...got facebook? I'm sure there are services out there that check would be hire social profiles...have you seen the Morgan Spurlock Inside Man episode on privacy and data mining? Rest assured members of Occupy or those with independent or left political leanings are going to have a rough time getting jobs in our new technological age. I think it should be illegal for employers to check up on hires to this extent. I even go so far as to say checking references should be illegal. Employers already have 60 days free and clear to test you out without any fallout...they can fire you for any reason. Now say you worked for a lunatic for years and you are beholden to that reference in order to gain new employment. The work system is turning into a venus flytrap where once you get in you can't get back out. In a free country opportunity should exist not just an egg in one basket no second chance dependent on our " holy job creators" and their good or bad or just plain rotten will or allowances. They are gatekeepers to upward mobility and we have become wholly reliant on them for our survival...self reliance is extinct.

The worst part is...we have no way to check up on that info or too see that it is accurate it us the credit bureaus but with no regulation. If I don't get a job due to some bit of false info or because I'm a member of Occupy...I will never be the wiser...this is insidious control of our free will and it must stop.

banks got my numbers already.

why only some people get to have all the numbers ?

[-] 1 points by MattHolck0 (3867) 2 years ago

if hiring is on whim of personality rather than what labor needs to get done|

I question the validity of need for my work and indeed labor system

I'm not reading that block let alone parsing it (OK I read it)
