Been trying to find a job. Been trying since December 2020. I got three offers.
- fly to Brampton, Ontario on my dime to work for $17.75/hour. How about no?
- same but $18/hour. Same answer.
- do night shifts here for $16/hour. Living wage here was last reported at $20/hour, in 2019. It's probably more like $22/hour now, at least. Same answer. (Living wage in Brampton is about $35/hour, if anyone was wondering.)
I'm not exactly sure what's going on with this make believe labor shortage but here I am. Hi. I can drive truck. Liquid, fuel, freight, high security, shunting, whatever you like.
Anyways, off to college then. I guess I'll take my fair wage using tax dollars. That hurts. It hurts me personally. It goes against my beliefs but here we are.
I make situation worse now. Sorry. I do crappy things when I'm backed into a corner I wasn't prepared for. How was I supposed to prepare for this, or even foresee it?
Is this propaganda or what? Why is there a pretend labor shortage?
