My breeders spawned me without my consent and now they expect me to wageslave and do other things I don't want to do for a life that I didn't ask for. My NEET days are numbered.

What a fucking joke.

I'm turning 29 soon and I haven't worked in almost a year. Before that it was job hopping from sub 15/hr job to the next. At some point I'm just going to have to except I can't keep running. I still live with my parents and don't work. I honestly don't care, but there are hard realities that i can't contend with

what the wiz above me said is right, those were some of the most miserable years of my life. Yeah, years. The worst part is that it was a worthless effort, since a family friend just turned up one day and said "hey you want a job? here you go" and bam, I suddenly got a job. Now I'm breaking my back and hoping I get accidentally hit by a car on the way home while pretending to be "thankful for the opportunity" because that's how it works in the fucked up region where I live.

I can't really work full time because I still have to study, the last time I did have a job was in a restaurant and it's basically hell because I had to work with people between 16-20 and most of them being succubi made it even more worse.

It's almost impossible to get a job right now for me probably because I'm older than 22 and then they have to pay you more than the slave wage they give to younger people.

Boss took away my night shift hours and made me do day shift. I had a breakdown today saying I'd kill her. I don't remember much else but I'm at home and my parents said I was dropped off by the police. Did I just fuck it all up?

Pure luck. Thrown applications at everywhere I could get to and the one that I finally got was by complete chance, if my job center appointment had been 2 minutes out either earlier or after then I wouldn't have got my current job.

As far as jobs go it could be infinitely worse, but I still hate working at all. The one positive was that when it was really busy there is no time to overthink anything and time fly's by because you don't get a chance to stop and wonder what time it is before your break and then the end of your shift, but since probably mid January it is absolutely dead so there is plenty of time to dread.

I miss my NEET days in a way, though I still had to "volunteer" at a charity shop back then so I don't miss it too much. At least I had a set week then whereas now it's just set at the end of the week and that is it.

This (>>214366). But I will still reply.

>You did give your consent though.

False statement.
>They're not forcing you to metabolize. They're not forcing you to not kill yourself.
There is no argument here.
>Take responsibility of your life and quit being a child.
Normie detected.

Now to actually reply to your non-arguments. I did not consent to be born since I had no capacity to do so. The damage of the decision taken on my behalf is done and is irreparable. I can't ever be unborn, I can't ever not have been. Now you may say that I consent to living by the fact that I continue to live. You mention that suicide is the answer to my problem. That is fair to say, but suicide won't take away all of the suffering that I've directly experience due to having been forced to be. Furthermore, suicide comes with existential anxiety. It takes either lots of effort to break the barriers that allow one to carry through with it or lots of suffering to cause someone to kill themselves.

But you never addressed my point, which is that my breeders created me and now expect me to wage instead of maintaining my livelihood. After all, they wanted a son, so why should they arbitrarily stop caring after their son past a certain age? That I didn't ask for this life does not mean that I don't want it. Perhaps I do, and I just wish to not wageslave, I'd rather stay in my room and engulf myself in my interests.

Im working for a temporary work company for 5 months now after being unemployed for 10 months and its already too much again, I make minimum wage, my workplace changes every few weeks and I constantly have to work overtime only to get home exhausted, put a pizza into the oven and then go to sleep.

What the fuck is the point of all this if I have no time left for myself, even weekends feel like nothing cause on friday I just go to bed and sleep until 11am on Saturday, then Im mad that I've slept so long so I sit at my PC and browse 4chan and on sunday I'm so anxious that I cant start anything because Im so focused on my time running away.

Had a job interview for a big company in front of 7 people today. 3 normies went before me and when they came back every one of them was happy, relaxed and told that there was no pressure and that the people interviewing us were friendly and all that and i could hear them laughing behind the wall. But then it was my turn and all the familiarity seemed to have fell apart altough i tried to seem friendly. It's like normies, especially corporate normies have a sixth sense to see that something is wrong with me, that deep down i absolutely hate that kind of responsabilities and that i'm afraid and disgusted of the cold world they live in.

I often leave work early and don't show up some days. My conclusion from work is that you need to find a job where you work very independently and alone if you are a wizard. Maybe even a shitty job like being a janitor would be good, since you work by yourself and do your fucking shit at your own pace. If you can't find a job such as this, it's probably better to go homeless or kill yourself, literally. I would kill myself if I was told that I had to stay at my current job for the rest of my life.

Corporately-correct email arguing is probably the most retarded thing I've had to experience while working. Email chains lasting almost a full week, paragraphs and paragraphs of unnecessary explanations, all written by smarmy cunts who have no better use for their time.

Teaching as a Wizard is not fun. I am not really qualified for much else and I fucked up a masters qualification which would have been my only ticket out of teaching (I sort of hate myself for that).

I am a qualified physics teacher and I have just accepted a job at a very good school; mercifully, the behaviour is very good and the students are relatively diligent. I don't know how I got the job but people in the profession keep telling me that I'm a good physics and maths teacher (they say that to everyone to stop them leaving).

I am not looking forward to 70-80 hour work weeks as well as working Saturdays. Teaching can be fucking soul destroying and I want an escape route.

Does anyone here wageslave from their home? I'm so sick and tired of being around normalfucks on a daily basis. I dream of a job where I wake up, go on my computer, open my work, do it for around 6 hours then I'm done. I would learn whatever i had to and if I got paid 30k a year for it I would be fine. That is what I make now working on a production floor. I would be willing to study whatever it takes but I'd so I for something I could learn within a couple of years. I'm good with computers, generally fairly intelligent overall. I just hate commuting and I hate waking up early. I heard medical billing is good but you need a degree for it.

Yeah I do web evaluation work for Appen. There are months I make 800 bucks, there are months I make 0. Biggest problem with online shit is how unreliable it is. If you're living with your parents and paying zero rent it's OK, but if you have a steady line of bills arriving every month I wouldn't depend on an online source of income if I were you. At least not the type of work I'm doing. I'm currently getting a certificate to ease my way into teaching English to some kids online. That looks more stable.

I know this is just a shitpost but whatever, I was hit with a strangely strong motivation to add my own take on this.
>You did give your consent though.
I didn't, I categorically couldn't because I didn't exist. If you mean that since I choose to keep living I give my consent then let me give you an example: If you created a robot and gave it a strong survival instinct, the ability to feel pain and be strongly averse to it then have you truly given it a choice? I find it difficult to say yes.
To put it in other words, it's like saying to someone "you can pick A or B but if you pick B I'll shoot you" or that "you can vote for the other party but your vote wont be counted". That's not a choice, even the law recognizes that consent is invalid in situations where coercion is involved.
Besides, making live knowing it will suffer and that it will find it as difficult as possible to end that suffering is not just cruel, it's evil, and they committed this act of evil solely because they wanted to. But that's beside the point I guess.
Also, remember that your parents didn't just force life on you, your parents were they only ones who could prevent your death.
>They're not forcing you to metabolize.
My mother makes a big deal out of me not eating. Most parents do, if their child doesn't eat, they do everything short of forcing food down their throat. Parents, or to be more precise, humans DNA, wants to live, and it does that by reproducing. Humans do not want their children to die because if they didn't care the species wouldn't have survived to reproduce. So they technically don't force you to but this ties into the next question so I'll get into it there.
>They're not forcing you to not kill yourself.
They do everything in their power to prevent it. They don't "force" you to live but they make it as hard as possible to kill yourself, for example: if you show signs of wanting to die, they will be more watchful as to lessen the times you can attempt. If you do attempt it, and fail, they will most likely send you to a mental hospital, where you will have your autonomy stripped from you and every measure put in place to make sure you realize the "error" of your ways (that you need to be a productive member of society no matter what it means to you, your body, or your state of mind, simply because once again, we would not have survived as a species if we didn't utilize each other and your cant use the dead (except in the metaphorical sense like as motivation or something)).
The police (well, most people really) act like this too, even going so far as to try and revive you if they find you dead. Which, if they succeed, means they've condemned you a second time all so that they can feel happy that they've "saved someone". This is why it doesn't matter what they law says, or what your parents say because their actions betray their hollow words.
>Take responsibility of your life and quit being a child
To put it simply, your parent made you/keep you alive because they want to and they want to make you because if our species didn't we wouldn't have survived. While I may be crazy, your mindset is incredibly simplistic, and most likely motivated by mainly emotion which allows you to think "Whoa man, it's so simple, why doesn't everyone else just get it?".

The more i read about ny next job the more i fear it, everyone seem to complain (262 opinions, 2/5 note on average on some internet page) that the workload is heavy, stresfull, fast-paced and being a postman in such a car-unfriendly city must be hell on earth. I'm also very disorganized and have a shit memory, how i'm gonna manage all the packages, mails, adresses, the trafic along with the eventual rude customers, coworkers, boss or whatever ? And i work saturdays too : i'm fucked. I begin tommorow if i succeed at the driving test in the morning so i'm tempted to just fail it on purpose because once i'm in i won't be able to quit it as i don't want to disappoint my mother and sister again. I already quit 2 jobs in a row recently, soon i'il be 30
but never had a stable job, can't study because i'm an early school dropout. I know they still got hope about me but if i keep running away they will lose it and i'm tired of stressing them and being a burden.

I remember working part-time as a "post man" when i was a teenager, delivering commercials during the weekend. It was such a pain in the ass to locate all the mailboxes. Some mailboxes were organized into one spot, some mailboxes would be on the individual houses themselves, and then you had mailboxes inside apartment complexes where you had to ask someone to let you in. The job was brutal but it was basically a scam, the route they gave me was way too big compared to the shitty pay. I was doing everything on a bicycle as well, having heavy bags filled with mail, attached to the bicycle. It was really shitty.

Driving in the city is incredibly stressful, especially if just have obtained a lisence. After some exposure you will get used to it though. The job will probably be very stressful and shitty in the beginning. At least you get to work alone.

I'm a senior in college and I've been looking for work for over a year. After applying to dozens of places online and only getting two phone interviews I decided to go to the career advisor at my school, who amazingly found me a job at a nearby school district as an "IT Technician". It only pays $10/hr, and is part-time, but I like it so far. I pretty much go around upgrading the OS on all the computers, or cleaning them or fixing things. Sometimes I'll bring my iPod to listen to music or a book to read. I'm almost always by myself, except sometimes a teacher will ask me to fix something or I'll go into a lab that has kids in it.

The kids are strange. They don't laugh at me for being an ugly freak like I imagined, they either ignore me or sometimes say hi to me. It seems the only thing they care about is fortnite or other shitty video games, and they often yell out stuff they heard on the internet in the middle of class. Like the other day I heard two kids calling each other boomer and zoomer. I think this confirms the demographics of the latest wave of cuckchan users.

I almost wish to stay at this job but if I stayed after graduating I would likely struggle to pay my student loans. Also even being part-time I keep getting called off, many weeks I only come in one day, either because there's not enough work to do or I haven't gotten permission from the principal. I would've gladly taken this job out of high school (and would've been able to do it just as well as I do) instead of wasting years at college just to become a debt slave. But life isn't allowed to be that easy anymore, I guess.

Just failed the test anyway, my life is hilarious. Out of 3 people i'm of course the one that didn't pass despite the guy saying clearly that touching a cone during the manoeuvers was eliminatory and guess what, one of the others candidates ran over 3 cones, the succubi 2 and she even did a scratch on the right side of the car when parking, me 0 and did everything ok but they got away with it because they didn't do a major blooper during the city drive that followed. I still makes our instructor a fucking liar. I did a blooper because i almost took a no entry road, the succubi did it too but it didn't seem like a big mistake because it was in a less busy area (being the first one to drive from the sorting center i had the worst road by far, when the others started we were in the countryside), altough in absolute it's the same mistake. Motherfucker stressed me, constantly telling me to go faster, not at all what i learned at the driving school, and he didn't like my driving style overall, not "economical" enough to work in the company. Anyway, another defeat i'il have to live with.

Was this a test for getting a drvier's lisence or for the job? You have to drive efficiently in the city or you slown down the traffic, they won't let you pass if you drive too slow afaik.

I was disgustingly bad at driving in the beginning, but after driving almost every day for over a year I'm 'ok' at it I guess. Unfortunately you have to get exposed to stressful situations in order to improve (drving on ice, in heavy traffic, and so on).

I've really been struggling with my anxiety and super neuroticism at my job. I feel that every one of my co-workers knows there's something up with me and that they're all scrutinizing. They constantly half ass their job and due to the prison mentality they all have, no one reports each other. Yet as soon as I might forget to do something, someone is making a comment about it. Hell, someone tried to blame me for something that I didn't do yesterday and I had to correct them. It's really starting to take a toll on my mental health. I've become even more paranoid of people, it's getting to the point where I don't want to leave my house on my day off, even though I need to. I finally have some free time and I need to get food, I'm almost completely out, yet I can't bring myself to go outside.

This sort of thing happens to me to, I'm going to start looking for new jobs if I make it to the middle of summer (more than half the staff is on thin ice with something we have little control over) with this one that at least offers a back end position because I'm sick of it. Already blew it with one I didn't take up the offer on so that's one bridge burnt when I didn't know any better hanging on to this one.

I hadn't realized until now, but my will is uplifted and broken down multiple times a day. I have a constant feeling of hope, followed by crushing despair. I am wagecuck, I think some of you guys can relate.

I actually have a nice job, I do my tasks on time and I am lawful neutral with colleagues.

I am 26 and facing possible cancer. Mortality not by my own hand. I've had to remove two dick moles and one hip mole, and there are two more to go in the back, plus I am already seeing new moles that I will have to eventualy remove. I have this rare skin disease where I get white spots all through my body.

Yesterday I got planted for something important, then I went to the doctor and got my last dick mole and hip mole removed. I can't fucking pee. I can't sleep, I always wake up at night, even though I take my meds.

I am having a strong episode of something mental because I am a loony and I am paranoid and down and my colleagues have noticed and they started treating me different, forever. "A freak that guy is". This is too much for me. I will drink and use some drugs today. Can't fucking stay sober. I hate life, I can dettach from everything except from my mind.

I have a nerve damage in my neck and shoulder. Due to this I have problems standing upright, my body just collapses. I have problems with the lungs, brain, gut, everything basically, also likely due to the damage. On top of this I'm a wagecuck in a physical job. I live with a family that I despise. Every day of my life is identical, I just go to work and sit in my room. I go to work and pretend that I'm normal even though I'm completely destroyed and a wizard on top of that. I come home just to be around morons that I'd rather never see again. My life is just one big wait. The damage is healing slowly through rehabilitation, it's the only thing that keeps me going. But the damage is very severe and might not ever heal fully. I will probably have to end my life it if it doesen't heal, although that will not be an easy thing for me to do.

After a year of non-stop work, my temp contract ended a few weeks ago. My life has been nothing but hedonistic since: I haven't showered or left my house once and I only leave my basement to use the bathroom or retrieve food from the kitchen at night. I don't see my family for days at a time which is delightful. Just anime and video games and indulging in delicious food.

But all good things surely come to an end and my agency has already lined up a new job that starts Monday… effectively the same work I was doing before. It is just as well because my savings are depleted and I cannot keep paying my part of rent any longer without income. My current plan is to power through another 90-day temp contract and return to NEETdom for as long as my savings can muster. It is going to be a very long two months.

Does anybody else have experience working for short bursts and coasting on their savings? How long do you generally last before returning to work?

How did you get your nerve damage? Genuinely curious. I care about my wiz brethren. I had sciatica before and I understand how hard nerve damage is. I've had multiple sports injuries, the only thing I can do is lift through my injuries and strengthen all muscles surrounding the injury. Got a torn ACL, I squat and deadlift a lot for it. Got a torn rotator cuff ligament, I overhead press a lot.

I can't fucking lift if I am abusing substances. I'd lift today but I literally have open bleeding wounds, one of them in my fucking dick.

I am moving back with parents for a while. Our relationship has improved, for the first time ever we get along. Communication was key, they harmed me for many years and I damaged them back in retaliation, now we're even but we are not friends. My mom knows this, my dad is more childish and still think that we can be friends after 26 fucking years. I stopped comfronting him but I ignore his "bonding" advances. I accept food though.

>How did you get your nerve damage?

I've likely had the damage since birth. I discovered it after I started working, because it got a lot worse due to the work. After I discovered what it was, I started the rehabilitation through neck and shoulder exercises. The problem is that my body has adapted to this injury, after I started rehabilitation some very strange stuff has been happening to my spine, and I have constant neck spasms. This nerve has been near dead all my life and now suddenly just came alive. It's over for me if it doesen't heal, I can't be bothered to live like this. My life could have been different, everything was ruined due to a dumb circumstance. Life is so disgusting and cruel.

Over the course of two years:

>become paranoid that people are watching how anxious I am
>train myself to calm my legs

>start developing bruxism
This one ended up being a slightly different story where I bought thicker/firmer chewing gum to deal with it but my cheek bones started popping because the excessive hard chewing wore down one of the joints in my jaw, so I had to stop.

>work in shipping for a hospital
>look up and there's a guy pushing a cart with a corpse on it
Always takes me out of my work because I think about what kind of person they might have been or why they died. Some guy wheels them out of their room immediately and comes to the loading dock to send them to the funeral home, meaning depending on the night you're going to see several dead people (or rather, the uncomfortable outline of their body from within the zip-up cloth bag). It's strange to see them when you know how recently they died– there's a family somewhere in the hospital grieving (hell, they might not even know yet). I don't think I would mind seeing a skeleton from decades ago but it's terrible to see a fresh body and know how recently they were still a person: they had an entire lifetime of desires and interests and memories and now all of that is gone forever. It's like I'm seeing something forbidden and profane, like when you're going somewhere you know you're not allowed and on edge.

There was a small one today. Maybe 10 or 9 years old, couldn't tell the gender at a glance. Those are the worst because for a lot of people they're in the hospital because of poor choices they made themselves, a child is essentially blameless yet dead regardless. I'm not usually one to place children on a pedestal for no reason like a normalfag but they still bother me more.

A coworker told me a few weeks ago they had a 800lbs guy die and ended up having to transport him out in a fucking trailer instead of the van because it literally couldn't support his weight and it was all they had on hand. I have no idea how they got him to the hospital in the first place.

I've worked in admin my whole career and Data Entry stuff has been some of the most cushy stuff I've ever had to do.

Methods of entry vary a little here and there and some companies are more up to date technologically than some of their peers, but using a computer is going to be standard across the job, it might sound daunting especially if this is your first job but it gets boring rather quickly, I promise you that.

Never experienced any real deadlines other than the reasonable expectation of getting data entered within at least 5 working days of us receiving it, pretty manageable.

One of my best jobs involved me working on my own in a light and airy office in my local hospital, very rarely did anyone from my "team" come down as they were all Healthcare Practitioners meanwhile I was the Admin slave.

Really had the ideal arrangement, I cycled to and from work and had a better self image, work even had a shower which I used in the morning, I was able to leave early once my work was done but still claimed my full 20 hours per week (kinda fraud but I didn't get paid shit anyway so I wasn't about to claim less)

If I may offer some advice to my fellow wizards:

A while ago (possibly several months or years ago, don't remember exactly) I asked in a wageslave thread what to do with my wagebux, since I was living at home and had no significant expenses, and wasn't interested in spending money on entertainment or consumerist hobbies. A kindly wiz recommended that I put it in savings, and I can only reiterate his advice today:

If you're in a situation comparable to the one I was in (working, living at home with no expenses), you're in a good position to save 90%+ of your income (as I did). Continue doing this for as long as possible, while living frugally and not wasting money on stupid shit. Realize that the average wageslave is living paycheck to paycheck and is one significant expense away from financial ruin. Eventually, your life will take an unexpeted turn (probably not towards normalfaggotry) - maybe you'll decide to get more education, change careers, or hell, even buy property, and at that point you'll be glad for every penny.

Sometimes thinking of how most people live from paycheck to paycheck brings me some sense of security with my little cushion. I also save all my change and get more on the side every day I can with a little extra work, who knows how much is there but it's a nice chunk for years of slaving away for the mountain of coins I started from when I actually thought I was going to be homeless.

Because the average job which is posted on a site has hundreds of applicants who meet the qualifications. Hell, most jobs you could probably figure out how to do after being trained regardless of work experience or education.
The supply of workers exceeds the demand for the workers. This makes it highly competitive to enter most industries and also keeps wages low since there will always be someone desperate enough to work for less.
So it all boils down to finding an individual who they can tolerate being around. This is where aesthetics, social skills and friendliness really come into play.
If you got the interview your resume is decent but you need to work on your people skills.

I've had like three people at work now ask me why I was losing so much weight and if something was wrong with me. I think the weight loss is a combination of taking kratom, constipation, having to walk a mile daily from work back home, and just generally eating either three small meals a day or just one meal on my days off. I used to weight 198 but now I'm like spooky skeleton. I don't see anyway of gaining the weight back without becoming unemployed again so I can just go back to eating and sleeping 14 hours a day.

I run a cash register alone for three hours alone during the busiest time of the day and it's been busier than christmas eve with all the doomsday prepping and I'm supposed to get other stuff done between customers but for the entire time I have lines 8-10 people deep with overflowing carts and they're talking on their cell phones bitching about being late but I can't help it because I'm always scheduled alone at that time. Literally the only employee in the store. Working alone is great except when a riot is about to break out. Yet I'm still more anxious about annoying coworkers (who hate me) and my mom by quitting than being bitched at by customers who seem to think I just don't want to call for backup (backup does not exist). Then they fill out surveys saying how slow it was, but the grand joke of that is, the results turn that into saying I'm slow. I'm signed in on the register at that time so when hamplanet soccer mom#28 selects "Had to wait to be checked out" the results we get say I have low "speed of checkout" score. WHY DO I GET PUNISHED FOR THE STORE MANAGER REFUSING TO SCHEDULE ONE MORE PERSON AT THE BUSIEST TIME OF THE DAY.

I can only cope during the terror by never looking in the general direction of the line. Pretend it doesn't exist. Never look any customer in the eye. I dissociate or "leave my body" or whatever it's called, where I feel like I'm dreaming and my body runs on autopilot and I watch myself go through the motions. And when I finally eventually have a free moment, I go the office and abuse kratom and benzedrex because I don't know how to get "real" drugs.

And now I notice just how disgusting the average customer is. They smell like they don't bathe (people would harass me if I stunk but it's okay for normalfags for some reason). Their hands are visibly dirty (people would ridicule me if I didn't wash my hands). And they cough and sneeze and dont do anything to mitigate the effects. They just stand facing my direction, three feet away, and cough or sneeze and don't turn or cover their mouths. If I dared to do that I'd be pushed down and stomped on.

The company sends out tasks like "build a 'keep your home healthy' display and spread coronavirus awareness!" And I read it as "take advantage of the mass hysteria to SELL SELL SELL! and make sure to do your part to convince more of the public to panic!" But when they start rioting I'm sure the company will suddenly be silent. The company sends out newsletters saying 'everyone should work from home if they can!' I guess that applies to the people working at the corporate office? Because the fucks working at the 12000+ stores across the US can't stock shelves or get robbed from home. And a chance of death is no excuse to miss work! "If you aren't willing to put your life on the line for THE TEAM then you can just fuck off get real know your place you expendable reject be grateful we don't murder you right now for being so ugly"

The educated people leave in the first place because there aren't any quality jobs.
The boomers are sitting on the actual quality jobs for years.
It's impossible for someone to get a job on their own effort without any reference or bribe.
The jobs left over are bad and can be done by someone with a high school diploma.
>Or is it like the US where getting a degree will leave you penniless?
Getting a degree will leave you both penniless and futureless for some.

There's less capital being invested to make well-paying jobs in those countries. The educated people with means leave if they can because their economic opportunities aren't great in their own country.

This is kind of the big thing with the whole education scam. Even in the US, where there's complaints about shortages of x, y,z, there's no real effort to educate more people in those subjects because it's expensive. Most universities have limited space in STEM programs since they are expensive to provide. The tuition from the other subjects subsidizes some of STEM as they're cheaper to teach. Companies themselves could retrain workers but they don't see that providing a big enough return which is why they just want to say no one can fill the job and bring in H-1Bs. The education is paid for and they're cheaper to employ.

You haven't "lost" anything until you actually decide to liquidate your holdings, that is to actually decide to sell it off. Your investments just declined in value, but you're still holding an X amount of whatever stock you own. Once the panic subsides, the market will eventually recover from this dip as it always has in the past. Simply continue to hold your investments and do not sell them, this time next year or so I bet it will have recovered fully and you would have not lost anything. Meanwhile if you sell now, you'll permanently lose whatever money you invested in the stock. Take a look at this chart, noticed how the stock market always has a series of boom & bust cycles, but the overall trend for it has always been to go up. Sure, your average joe investor can't compete with the high tech daily algorithms that profit from minute stock market movements, but then again he doesn't need to. If you simply have a long term horizon for your stock market growth and don't succumb to the occasional panic that causes most investors to lose their minds, you'll do just fine. There has never been an instance where the US stock market went into a permanent decline and stayed there, the overall trend has always been for it to grow. People still need goods & service and while this whole virus thing is pretty scary, humanity has survived much much worse epidemics and came out just fine. You'd be surprised at how resilient humans are, it'll take a lot more then some minor flu variation to kill us all off. I'd suggest for you to stop paying attention to the news so much and stop watching the stock market. Don't touch your investments and most importantly don't sell them off. In a year or s,o I bet the market will have recovered sufficiently where you'll be thanking yourself that you didn't sell anything off.

Why did you get a degree in something if you didn't want to do the only thing it qualifies you to do? I mean what are you gonna do, invent new types of computers? Good luck if you're not Einstein. The only thing normal people can do with a computer science degree is become a code monkey or a server monkey and the latter only after doing even more training and certifications. The degree becomes outdated incredibly quickly too because of how fast everything in the field is progressing, if you don't work actively using your knowledge base in the industry you will become less and less attractive to potential employers over time. I would just become a code monkey if I were you. (actually I would just be a neet but, you know, figure of speech and all that)

What they really mean are businesses that operate purely for recreational purposes.

It's so loosely defined in the shelter-in-place mandates that have been issued so far; even GameStop was able to class itself as "essential business".

So practically everyone in my department is working nights, starting next week. I will go from "working alone in peace with very minimal interaction with people in other departments," to "having to spend 8 hours holed up with a few other coworkers." On top of that, my schedule is changing. Instead of working Mon-Fri nights with weekends off, I'm going to be working every second weekend, and I'll have a random day off in the middle of the week. On top of having to deal with normals literally every shift, I would have less time to decompress, as I feel better rested after two consecutive days of doing nothing.

I don't have paid sicktime, either. If I catch anything (coronavirus, flu, whatever), I'm without pay for however long I'm off. Also, I'm going from working alone to working with, at minimum, two people in my workstation, often more. I'd rather not get sick.

"Society will split into two…

We’re at a point now where society can split into two. Some people will return to the world while others will stay in quarantine. Some may need to do so. But most people will do so because of their personal belief.

If people wish to take the chance, why shouldn’t people be allowed to go back to work/socialize? Those who wish to quarantine themselves in their homes can continue to do so.

It is legal for the US government to shut down trade due to pandemic. But that can only last a couple of weeks. After that, the compelling interest argument stops.

I can easily go in front of the Supreme Court and argue the government, local or otherwise, is violating my First Amendment Right to Freedom of Assembly. The reason for restrictions on pandemics no longer applies when people can choose to go into quarantine. If Malstrom chooses to socialize while the reader hides at home, Malstrom is not inflicting pain or disease on the reader who chooses to stay locked in their house. I can’t be blamed for ‘spreading pandemic’ when people can choose to stay home.

It is extremely difficult for any American government to prove compelling interest over First Amendment rights outside of existing precedent. In a couple of weeks, I expect society to split into two. Some will go to work, others will remain in their house.

A few months later, one narrative will collapse and the other will prevail. I suspect the narrative that ‘Coivid 19 panic is being overblown’ will prevail. Historians will laugh at us for shutting down society over a cold virus."

If you live near a winter resort try get a job at the ski lifts.
My interview was straight with the boss and it was basically; "Are you an alcoholic? Do you take drugs?" Very easy to get into and most stations are solitary and since its winter, cozy. Its basically like being a security guard, you set up some nets and shovel snow in the morning and during the day you just sit in your comfy hut and turn off the lift when needed. Very boring though and I advise some audiobooks or podcasts, internet might be a problem and reading is not really possible because you need to keep an eye on those morons.
Pay is shit of course but you dont have to deal with normalfags and you can get a variety of schedueles, 4/3, 5/2, 6/2, 6/1 etc. and best thing is weekend during the common work week instead of Saturday/Sunday when everything is closed and full of normalfags.
A lot of resorts also have summer attractions open so you can be employed ten months a year.

Very wizardly job and I recommend it if you have the chance.
And be vary of their machinist training courses, I heard there is no real benefit except that they might legally shit the blame on you of something serious happens. Also you are more likely to be assigned to a two man station.

No one said bosses were responsible for that, we don't want them to be. We want our independence from bosses and freedom from them, not a dependent relationship on them where we have to beg for everything. We don't want bosses at all,because they deny us our liberty. We are thinking creatures, and to deny us our liberty is to deny us the opportunity to think for ourselves, which is to deny our very existence. Freedom is a product humanity because of the very fact that we are all unique individuals, conscious of ourselves being different from others, creates a desire to act freely. The craving for liberty and self expression is a fundamental and dominant trait that we are denied in the workplace.

>for people to become educated to freedom and the management of their own interests, they must be left to act for themselves, to feel responsibility for their own actions in the good or bad that comes from them. They’d make mistakes, but they’d understand from the consequences where they’d gone wrong and try out new ways.” [Fra Contadini]


Liberty and freedom is a precondition for the maximum development of ones individual potential, and we do not have liberty or freedom in the workplace. We are denied our self expression, they rob us of our time, and they rob us of the fruits of our labor while we are paid crumbs.

So we want full responsibility over ourselves. What we have now is not that, what we have is a dependence on a boss who denies us of responsibility. In turn, this stagnates and retards our growth to our full potentials. We want control over our own self activity, not to give it to some boss to control us like slaves.

The capitalist firm is a centralized hierarchical totalitarian institution and those subject to it will see their abilities to manage their own lives, their creative thought, individuality, and self expression eroded under a constant stream of orders from above. In turn, the pretensions to power of those at the top are justified, as our capacity to manage our own labor without a boss is weakened by authoritarian social relationships that keep us dumb and from thinking for ourselves.

We want our own self-empowerment, not dependence on authority and not to give someone power over us.


No one is free to start their own business as easily as you want to believe. Do you live in reality? Don't you think that if it were so easy then people here would do so instead of taking the humiliating position of being someones wageslave? You need money to even to begin such ventures, which most people here don't have, and even if they did, our society is structured in such a way that the vast sweep of work is done collectively and socially (and the capital owned by a minority of rich to who enslave us), not as freelance/contract work.

What standing do you have to speak of liberty issuing from an authoritarian organization and society? There is no liberty under authoritarianism, except for the boss.

You're dishonest coming into the wageslave thread and acting like people here made a free choice to be a wageslave. The reality is that they had no other choice, because the society they live in and their own circumstances in life, which is the circumstances of the vast majority, leaves them no choice but to be a wageslave.

The pic is a shortsighted rage, Bezos is rich because normies are consumerfags, not because he steals someones wages. Consumerfags give their wages to his empire voluntarily, because it is a good service for obtaining material objects. If you feel that Amazon steals your wage - be less of a consumerfag, there are no Amazon-only essential items. He's not nice to his workforce, but that makes him rich-er, not "rich", he'd be a billionaire even if Amazon was a half-charity. Same story with most billionaires, normies suck and these guys happen to supply to their demands well. And my demands, too, Amazon has some great objects there, rare, hard to find, all in one place. I demand 15 minute delivery for my material hedonistic needs, using drones, planes, electromagnetic catapults on zeppelin warehouse networks - I honestly don't give a fuck, if the technology allows it - let's do it. Monumental mad projects like that I'd gladly wageslave on, and give a part of my wage to.

>the poor are trying to rob
Labour creates all of the worlds wealth. Without workers, there would be no society or civilization. So when we wise up and liberate ourselves from our masters and bosses, it will just be a re-appropriation of what is rightfully ours, not theft. The only theft is the wealth the boss derives from their position as a boss, or the wealth that someone derives from renting out land, or the theft that someone derives from renting out homes, the theft from charging interest on loans, the theft from gaining an income through stocks and not through work. All wealth derived from work, and not from passive ownership over private-property, but that is where the rich derive their wealths. Thus all the greatest thieves in society are not your fellow poor neighbors, workers on strike trying to raise their wages, not the so-called criminals that steal from supermarkets because they can't afford to eat. The greatest thieves are the people controlling us and running society, the business owners, the landlords, the bankers, and the politicians.

It is not robbery to take back from a thieve what is rightfully yours. The wealth of the world was created by workers and we will take back what is rightfully ours.

When we say Bezo's is a thief, it is because of how he earns his money, which is through ownership of a corporation and the power that position gives him over the distribution of surplus that comes from the amazon business. He is only able to retain that position because the state defends private property rights by violence, and if there were no state to defend these unjust rights then the workers would be Bezo's equals and they would get an equal say in how to divide the surplus in which they all contributed to in making.

Communism is a worse trap than wageslavery, you'll be forced to work on things that you don't care about, exactly what capitalistic wagies do today. The only difference is that essential products would be much cheaper and everything that is more than essential would be really hard to get, because nobody cares about making a lot of high-tech dishwashers due to no competition and hand-washing being "good enough". Everything would always be "good enough" and everything would forever be shit compared to what slaves of capitalism have, where there is at least a productive competition between lizard people. Collapse of USSR was a massive breath of fresh air for everyone in it, until its corpse started rotting.

Besides, what product of labor does an amazon warehouse worker has? The fact of movement of a 1200 boxes from a shelf to the conveyor belt? How do you compare it to the labor of an office rat that has to chew through 1200 spreadsheets a day, to distribute the surplus in a fair way? What if the rat is unhappy about your distribution and starts spreading its social nets to undermine your position and get a larger share? Soviets solved this issue by killing people like that, if you're not blissful about being a social slave and accept what the party is saying - you're an enemy, a parasite and should be disposed of, with lying manipulators having a massive edge in this game and a solid reason to conspire and make this system even harsher and more stable. In the end people like that came to power, and the whole system became like that, and it's like living in a snake nest. Monetary power was replaced by social power on all the levels of the system, if you're an "important person" or friends with the TV salesman - you can get it, if not - you're not really worth talking to, communism did not happen yet, money doesn't matter much, demotivated labor did not produce enough TVs for everyone and engineers aren't that interested in reverse-engineering capitalistic TVs or toilet paper production lines, rocket engines and tanks are much more fun, go back to the queue, smile harder and re-read the government-approved sci-fi books about the happy communistic life on a Jupiter moon in the nearest future. Same situation as with not having money in a capitalist society, but with even more shit on top of that.

I believe the actual non-trapping way out of this shit is building the infrastructure through wageslavery, avoiding it personally as much as possible, and then squeezing their capitalist balls hard enough so that everything necessary for survival becomes practically free through technical progress and taxation alone. With no possibility to die of starvation or cold, people would have less reasons to do shit jobs, with too-big-to-stand companies falling apart due to that. It would cause even harder competition between lizards, they'll have to lure people to work for them as the value of money and labor would raise, with even higher risks/rewards for lizards and big rewards for the time people spend on someone else's project.

The "demand" is only socially created. People are bombarded with images saying they need to have everything new. It's manufactured demand. Amazon can also only do all of those things since they have the bargaining power against other producers. The producers then also lower their wages. He has to make sure everyone is skimping as much as possible so he can offer the products at the cheapest price. It's the same thing with wal-mart.

Stockholm Wizzuh.
That being said I sort of wish I had at least a part time job I didn't hate, because I'm bleeding money as there's no unemployment here. Just bargaining in this hellish reality we call life.

I am straight up going to kill myself. I can't get a job PERIOD. I have a Computer Science degree but apparently no skills that companies want whatsoever. Coronavirus has made getting a job even more impossible somehow.

I wish someone would help me. I need some kind of guidance. I feel incredibly lost in this world. There is zero opportunity.

Have you tried freelance sites like Fiverr or PeoplePerHour? Virtual Office Temps could also work.

It's a really bad moment, programmers are mostly working remote, and it's rare to hire newbies to do remote work. HR and managers will want to talk to you one on one which is impossible right now.

Apply to 300 entry job positions, dont worry about how shitty the company is, you just want to have a year of experience in your resume, HRs will consider you then. If you have a linkedin account, recruiters will spam you the shitty positions they can't fill.
Try to get a job where you use the language you want to use later. Don't get a javascript job if you loathe frontend web development because you'll have a hard time moving away from there.
You can try learning something like django or rails and upload a basic site to github to show that you are able to do something.

You have to compete against $1/hour indians in those places. Freelancers are hired either because they are extremely cheap (outsorcing to third world countries), are 'experts' in a specific field or their social network.

I loathe programming. I haven't found any kind of programming I enjoy. I studied it for 4 years but I'm going to be miserable no matter what I do in this life so I guess I'll do this.
The only jobs that exist are web dev. I have no web dev skills or knowledge. All entry level web dev demands years of experience. All programming jobs pay like complete shit

Two days simply aren't enough to rest from a workweek. It's like being constantly waterboarded, the time you're out of the water simply isn't enough to breathe

I'd make more if my job just fired me and I went on unemployment.
