If you're looking for money in the streets, clearly your net worth is low, zero or you actually owe money. This isn't exactly the best time to indulge in life's luxuries. You need to get back on your feet first.

Could be using a library computer, or their parents computer if they're young. Either way, if you're out of work selling a device that allows you to look and be contacted for jobs isn't exactly the brightest option.

My workplace is always hiring and it often gets to the point where they will literally hire anybody who applies... And that's how I got a job and worked my way up to being a manager in 7 months.

I have a feeling #37 that they have parents who help pay for it - or are using a computer to post it on the website. This is actually a website, not just an app. The website came before the app.

most places these days, the only way you can even fill an app out or find out if they are hiring is on the internet it would make it harder to find work without this "luxury"

also OP might be using a public computer or friends/family's device etc.


It's not fair to condemn someone who is broke because they have a smartphone. A couple years back I was collecting my change for ramen or skipping meals altogether to pay the bills. And I had an iPhone. Why? Because it was purchased while I was financially secure. Why didn't I sell it to make money? Because I was taking public transportation for one job and it allowed me to track arrival times. It also allowed me to check and respond to emails from both my jobs which was imperative to my productivity and income.

And don't even start with computers. A computer is 100% necessary for job hunting, as very few establishments accept paper applications these days. Transportation to and from a library to use their computers is wasting time that could have been spent filling out one more job application that day.

How about we all stop to think about the necessities and time required to find a job and keep a job these days rather than viewing useful tools as "luxuries".

youre an idiot. someone who is actually poor would sell their device to feed themselves. you can only go a week without food. if they were really desperate. no matter how important internet or phones are now a days they are STILL A LUXURY. real homeless, broke people have NOTHING at all.

#21 in Germany you actually get money for donating blood, plasma and/or platelets. Since so few people do it, most hospitals etc give you at least a 10€ voucher (for plasma) up to 75€ for platelets.
