"oh my god, you’re seriously going to pay college kids $15 an hour to flip burgers? get a real job!"
a real job? you mean, like, an internship at the white house?
okay, well what about the national democratic party?
what about interning at the united nations?
wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not
This is the irony of it all: the fancy internships that would boost your resume in fact costs you. The time you would be spending them is the time you cannot earn a living so naturally people who can afford them are often rich enough, whom, with the help of the glorious resume, will most likely get better jobs than those who could not. We live under the illusion that if we work hard, we will succeed, and that success is within one’s reach.
