Our day to day struggles to survive and make sense of the lives we lead and those relationships with family, friends that at some point become dysfunctional to use the psychiatric term. We all need to get along with not only others but most importantly with ourselves. At work, they want you to have the team mentality where the job is more important than the individual. One becomes an employee number and nothing more, there is no interest in what ideas you can offer to make improvements to the workplace environment. The suggestion box meant you had a least the feeling that your job was secure as long as you worked your assigned hours and not complain. Temporary workers are invisible to management because of that status of being “temps”
We now live in the age of employment agencies that are used as a shield to protect the employers from having to hire anyone directly to accomplish their goals. How many jobs are out there where you can work at the same company long enough to get retirement benefits? It appears that only employment for the government in the city, state and federal level offers that kind of job security. If you are not in that select group of individuals good luck with your future in the private job market that exists today.
Those who are now starting out in the world of work will have challenges unlike previous generations but just like those who came before who crossed oceans and mountain ranges to demonstrate the power of the human mind and spirit will overcome any obstacles to a better life. That belief has produced the world we now enjoy. The Millennials now have the task of making the world a better place than the one they were born into. Game on!!
