Cum Laude Graduate with Honors
(Charlotte, NC, USA)
I am a Cum Laude Graduate with Honors and I cant even work at McDonalds.
I am frustrated with the economy because I recently graduated cum laude for a prestigious North Carolina University, and I can not even work at McDonalds.
Apparently my generation has it backwards, which will doom us further in the future. Many of us were told by our parents to get good grades in college and to keep a small part-time job for spending money on the side. What has happened is that graduates do not have real work experience (as graduation requirements already make it difficult to graduate on time, much less have time for a real job). This has left all of in the hole; many of us moving back in with our parents.
It is unfair to the future of America, but we will continue to fall deeper in this hole if we do not start creating jobs. I just hope that things will start to look up so that the economy can slowly turn around; bailouts, incentives, whatever works is OK with me.
I think it will take awhile for the economy to turn around however, as we need to create jobs, quit wasting money, and slowly start to contribute to our huge debts to other countries. It will take everyone to participate.
