Broke Stupid

Posted on Tue, Aug 2, 2011 at 9:42 AM

I have gone to both college and university and I have pounded the pavement for jobs. I have been underemployed, underpaid and living at my parents house forever. I'm so sick of it. What happened to the 'go to school, get a good job and succeed' story? I have heard many of these same stories. Why isn't the government doing something about it? If there aren't any jobs out there shouldn't the people know? We just keep signing up to be broke. No wonder they bring immigrants in because the people who grew up here keep leaving. Thanks Nova Scotia! —Stupid for Staying
