By what the fuck, mate - Australia
Today, I started working my crappy, minimum-wage retail job at a local electronics store. An hour into my shift, my boss sent me to scrub out a discount bin, after some drunk cunt in his teens staggered into the place yelling, and puked his guts into it. What a life. FML

Go to college and do a course.
Statistically speaking OP would be in the exact same situation regardless, sorry but an education does not guarantee a job.


74- That makes you a very patient person. I couldn't do your job, I can barely stand the emergency department even as a patient I can't imagine doing it daily. Kudos to you!

#11: So everyone outside of the United States is rich and care-free? Sorry my friend, but the terrible economy is not strictly limited to the U.S. People all over the world are getting any job they can nowadays.

Welshite, Australia's unemployment rate is damn low compared to a lot of the world. You might want to research stuff before giving opinions on it.

Actually Australia was one of the only developed countries to not go into recession during the global financial crisis, the economy remained strong. Plus Australia actually has a minimum wage (about $16 an hour, increasing with age and training) so even a minimum wage job in Australia is better than one in many other countries.

True, but most people who are paid by minimum wage are young people. Now let's look into detail; looks like the unemployment for young people in Australia is over 15% : /.

Minimum wage unfortunately hurts inexperienced workers. Most people do not want to have to train someone at 15-16$ an hour if they are not worth it. And even if you are hired, a young worker may not even be guaranteed that many hours.

I watch too much youtube, as that is what I thought of after reading this thread.
