Here is my opinion that nobody asked for, but I know that I am not alone on this one.

I was talking to one of my cousin's 26 year old friend, who is out of work and says there are "just NO jobs out there right now" and does not know what to do for money.

Now, before we get started, I understand there are people who are getting laid off right now, especially during COVID. There are people who are in hard times. And there are people who are struggling.

But, when I hear someone say, especially these kids who have been out of school for a few years that there are just NO JOBS OUT THERE, I can't help but think "what a joke".

There are TONS of businesses in Western New York who I'm sure will agree. They need help. Lots of it. Some places just need bodies, no experience needed.

So, when people say there are no jobs, what they really mean is "I don't feel like working". We all want to make a lot of money and have the perfect job and have great benefits, but sometimes people need the reminder that they have to WORK to get to that point. If you are needing money, there are plenty of jobs out there, so don't say nobody will take you. Start somewhere, get creative, begin a CAREER....and go to work. The rest of everything will come.

Remember, you can always change jobs when another job opens up, but don't say there are no jobs.
