    ...or she may have to go to work at Taco Bell. Truly tragic!

    I'd be happy to, as long as she endorses this $2,000,000 check that I received from Nigeria.

    I'll gladly send her $5 to see her tits.

    Sweet Tebow.

    What a self-absorbed little twit.

    I hope she stays unemployed for another year.

    Eh, I can think of something a little better than Taco Bell that the sweet lady can go to to both A.) Immediately become employed, B.) Pick up some fast cash and C.) Do something fun.

    There's a reason it's called the world's oldest profession. :)

    She could open an escort service for all the right reasons. And set up shop at the top of Four Seasons. 8)

    I have friends & family members who are struggling to find employment, so I'm not unsympathetic to anyone who is looking for work.

    But at some point, we've got to realize that just extending unemployment benefits indefinitely, without requiring stringent requirements to seek employment, is only going to exacerbate the problem.

    Look at what this girl wrote in her email:

    "I’ve been looking for a job aka $$$ for over a year. I haven’t applied to Taco Bell or the equivalent min. wage jobs yet. Thanks to the Gov’t and the voters, I have been able to barely survive off Unemployment Insurance and several extensions."

    I don't know what this girl's job skills are, but if you want to reach the top of the ladder, you've got to start at the bottom rung.

    She doesn't seem interested in that.

    I wonder what other jobs, besides Taco Bell, she views as beneath her.

    Some of the most important job skills young people need to acquire are just the habits of getting up in the morning and going to work. They need to learn to follow direction and how to work within a team.

    Almost any job will give you those skills and make you more employable elsewhere.

    Why would anyone hire this girl who has no work history?

    She has a degree in international business. Taco Bell's not going to hire her, just as it wouldn't hire anyone here who has a degree.

    I was about to post a rant, but deskslave's comment beat mine. He's got somewhat of a good point. When I tried to look for a different job in 2002, I think a lot of my problem was that journalism jobs are not exactly plentiful even in good times and the places I was applying to just so I could have a job and some kind of income had absolutely no idea what to do with an applicant with a journalism degree who worked at a newspaper for six years.

    Seriously, I had trouble getting interviewed for jobs I could have had easily in high school. My degree was a disadvantage when I applied for the kinds of jobs open at the time. I'm guessing, they thought I was going to ask for $10 an hour. Of course, I'd never made more than $7.50 at that point.
