Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said a few days ago, “There is no bad job. The only bad job is not having a job.”
He went on to say how he drove a taxi and refereed hockey to make extra cash at one time.
His point was when unemployed we can’t be too picky and thinking we’re going to pick up exactly where we left off?
What planet are you on to think that? I’m guessing planet union or planet public sector.
The reality is most of us have had a wage freeze, loss of pay, or downsized at some point of our life.
I have done internships, moved across the country and even worked for free.
You may fall a couple of rungs on the ladder but if making wise use of your time, like education, you could end up better off.
It’s not the end. It’s a new beginning.
Who said life wasn’t tough?
Ask your parents, grand parents or even great grand parents how tough life can be.
Then stop whining and get to work.
There is a reason this country has always been a jewel for immigrants.
It’s a land of opportunity.
Opportunity some of us already living here, take for granted.
I’m Scott Thompson.
