Every day on the news, we see stories of people who are looking desperately for jobs, but I wonder if they really want to work. A friend is a manager at a very successful company. Over the past 6 months, he has hired 3 men and none of them have lasted more than 3 months. The other managers specifically spell out the duties of the job, which begins at 3am and finishes around 11am Monday-Saturday. all of these guys say they would like the job, they even spend a few hours on-the-job during the interview process make sure they really get to see what the job is. However, once they are hired, they are often late, have excuses to leave early, complain about working, refuse to follow protocol, etc... This job pays decent money - in the mid to upper $30,000s plus benefits, holiday pay, sick leave, etc..... They have tried hiring experienced people as well as people they believed were trainable...but none of them want to work! My friend has been there over 1 year and loves it. They have other employees that have been there over 10 years, so it isn't that the company is misrepresenting itself,but the new hires are worthless.
is this just a freak coincidence or have Americans really become that lazy and jaded?
