This is another puzzler to me. Why does Obama and others think it is a travesty that some folks have two jobs? Or as they say, HAVE to have two jobs?
I see a lot of people every day that have two jobs, I see some a couple of times a day at various places. When asked why they work all the time their answer is that they want to buy a car of pay for education. I laud them for working hard! Isn’t that how this country was built, by hard work?
I have had two jobs at various times in my life. I did it to get ahead to pay for college, or later to have some extra cash for Christmas or summer time activities. I never once saw myself as a victim.
Their alternative would be to collect unemployment or get other government assistance. I think they are too ingrained into the principle of self sufficiency to consider being cared for. Sure, everyone likes play time but I think the ones who have two jobs like to make some money too. I don’t think we should make victims out of them; I think they “get it”!
I also know that if I were hiring people I would look hard at the ambitious, two job people!
