Not I.

My career is in engineering, and all the necessary on-the-job "socializing" is handled by my secretary.

A privilege is something that can be given and taken away and is considered to be a special advantage or opportunity that is available only to certain people (i.e., employment given to a person who demonstrates ability and willingness to do the work).

Therefore, employment is not a right, it is a privilege granted by an employer.  That privilege may be revoked at any time.

The mere fact that you may need a job does not mean that anyone is obligated to hire you.



Eh even if your rights are being denied how do you prove it and who has the money to start legal proceedings? To sue you need at least $5,000. You can’t sue after every little infringement of your human rights cause for example someone found out i was dumb so they wanted to get rid of me cause they had doubts that I was stupid, which they were right even before I realised, so they just found something else to fire me over. Unfortunately i slept through an alarm and couldn’t sleep the night before and am a deep sleeper and missed work. So I got fired and rightly so. I regret it so much cause it was going to be an easy job- minding a dog and house sitting which I was looking forward to cause most of my jobs were cleaning and that’s exhausting! I would much rather a less tiring job.

Eh I don’t think that applies in every job.

You said you also don't want to do a lot of work too. That's not a good idea for someone with I assume little in the way of work experience.

An employer is more likely to give you a part time job when they've seen you can handle a full time job. The attitude you have towards jobs doesn't seem the best.



Depends on what you consider a low end job? I’ve only ever had physical jobs. I can’t choose to get a full time job as it’s not up to me... I used to work as a cleaner and it’s very difficult to secure full time hours. I did have full time work for a week? Temporary work and 8-4 ish I think for pick packing for a week so that was a “full time” temp job. Eh I just want a job that I can get skilled up fast in and so I don’t need to practice / have experience and just do. Hence why I really want a telemarketing job. A few of my exes got them pretty easily.but I don’t think they stayed in it for long. Never hear of people lasting decades in those jobs. I think if you want a full time job you’ve got to have some type of education - diplomas,certificates and degrees. Experience is not enough. Maybe for waitressing and stuff but I can’t do that till I’ve sorted out my knees.

Where did I say I didn’t want to do a lot of work? If you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life.
