Generation Y Workplace: Millennials Who Quit Jobs To Get Ahead

Generation Y Workplace: Millennials Who Quit Jobs To Get Ahead

Commented Mar 11, 2013 at 14:08:38 in Canada Business

“Entitlement aside, if grunt jobs only pay minimum wage and millenials have huge student debts, I can't blame them for wanting a liveable salaries.

No one wants to be 30+ years old and renting with student debt.”

“I'm 51. It took me 10 years to pay off my student debt and I'm still renting. I took my time, because the interest rates were low, and the market was a better use of my extra money. Renting gave me the flexibility to jump jobs and geography to get ahead with a lower cost. Now, having been forced to be a contractor for 4 years, I don't have the stability to buy nor the desire to saddle myself with a mortgage and maintenance costs.”

“I've had 5 jobs within my 1.5 years of graduating from university. Why? Jobs offers minimum wages. Short-term contracts. No advancement opportunity. Unethical employers.

But it's too easy to blame everyone but myself. Every generation has their sets of challenges to overcome. The way we handle these challenges will be what defines us.”

“I don't like the interpretation of this study. Does it suggest that foods made with natural ingredients are 'healthier' than processed foods? I think not.

I'd rather be unhealthy by this studies standards rather than eat a Hungry-Man every night.”

“Then what do you think was the 'real cause' of the violent behavior exhibited by your young relative? If you, his family, cannot help prevent the antisocial/violent behavior, then who will? The parents? The government?

In the USA, citizens will scream bloody murder if they think the government if telling them how to raise their kids.

In the meantime, a rational individual, would argue in favor of more stringent gun laws in order to keep your young relative from possessing an automatic firearm, at the very least.”

“Perhaps this study is further proof that more individuals are becoming increasingly frustrated with the way democracy works in Canada.

If voters were more engaged in politics, perhaps we (voters) could collectively take blame for our governments failings. Rather than blaming a figurehead or political brand.

Check out the Online Party of Canada for those individuals who like to vote on individual issues, not failed brand/parties.”

“"I wonder who are the poeple supporting this industry"

People who watch too much TV and Movies support this industry. For instance, society collectively agrees that religions like Scientology, are ridiculous. But masses of people will still flock to see Jack Reacher in theaters which fills Tom Cruise's wallet because they can't help themselves. Many people don't realize how they can support something they dislike.”

Why Am I Punished For Supporting War?

Commented Mar 26, 2013 at 13:57:54 in Canada

“But you are...not being punished for supporting the war.
People whose lives are ruined by war are the ones being punished.

Also, people have no problems with supporting the war / hating biking lanes / etc. and socializing with un-like minded people. It usually comes down to the individual and how willing they are to admit errors when presented with sound reasoning from the other party. Something war supporters / detractors are equally guilty of being insensitive about.”

“Reducing this trend is not as simple as "staying out of trouble". While that should work in theory, the reality is that people get into trouble.

What will reduce the trend is examining data about what type of trouble Aboriginals are commonly incarcerated for and taking preventative/rehabilitative steps to prevent these occurrences. Which is likely what the report suggests. But whatever...”

“You realize that reducing the trend of Aboriginal's in prison is in Canada's best interest?
Prisons cost money. Slows down the courts. So even if you hate Aboriginals, you should be able to see some incentives for taking the report seriously.

I'm not sure what solicited your comment about myriads of excuses, probably an unconscious hate towards aboriginals, but it's in direct disagreement with the claims of systemic discrimination in the justice system.”

The Root of Canada's Obesity Problem

The Root of Canada's Obesity Problem

Commented Mar 11, 2013 at 10:46:30 in Canada Living

“Canada has no strategy when it comes to foods and healthcare. Which is unfortunate considering the complexity of the relationships.

Private food manufacturers sell non-nutritional foods made from many clever derivations of wheat which increases the rate of health issues (obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer). The Canadian Taxpayer then needs to increase funding for our health care system to pay for these long-term health conditions.

Individuals can't "afford" fresh foods, because why buy apples for $5 when you can get 2 bags of chips for $3. Bag of milk 4L for $5 or bottle of 2L Coke for $0.99. Or they have "no time" to cook in the day because I need to watch 4 hours of TV every night. Dinner time was traditionally a family-event where kids are taught to cook and appreciate the value of good ingredients.

I agree that the parents definitely hold the most influence, but we have elected officials in government who are just as complacent.”
