Got that right! We all should gang up on these tight azz companies and give them no choice! If it wasn't against the law, I'd torture an employer to hire me and keep me, and pay me for what I was worth!

The problem is most workers aren't worth much... most of the people complaining have at most a high school diploma and are working an unskilled labor job... you don't make much because you don't have a skill or knowledge that sets you apart from other people...

I do not see any point of hiring someone with a Diploma or GED and hiring someone with out them! What makes someone with a Diploma/GED better than those without? I personally don't think some stupid piece of paper is going to help you or make you a hard worker! I've been working for many years, since 17 yrs old and worked hard and dependable and I don't have these documents! These kids with these documents are actually worse than it used to be, no most are doing drugs and living with mommy! I've seen them walk off jobs because they were too hard,I'm way older than them and still keeping up! I mean come on people, why worry about a dam piece of paper especially in Greeneville, it's not like your going to get an office job or build rockets or something, you'll never have anything or get ahead because of the Government making sure of that by taking so much out of your paycheck and getting no assistance, why bother? This world is so f**king messed up, it will never be fixed! Besides, these employers are not hiring anyways because the cost of living has risen and supply and demand has dropped, you can't live anymore unless you live in your car or pitch a tent in the woods, can't open up your own business because other people are doing the same thing or you may not even be called because people just can't afford it! We're f**ked and that's all it boils down to, we are drying and dying with little to no money or anything else to show for our lives! The Government has got it planned, they even raised the Retirement age so they hope that you'll die before they have to pay you, they set guidelines so that if you make too much, you can't get help but may not make enough to buy food or other things! They got it planned, they tax you to death, you pay taxes for everything out here and I mean EVERYTHING! The second you flush your toilet in the morning, your spending has started and it keeps adding up. Your even paying while sleeping! You are in debt while living and during death. F**k it, better off killing yourself so that the Government can't take anything more, in this life, the males are screwed for life!

You not having those documents is why you have been working hard low paying jobs your whole life... what makes someone with a diploma better is they are more educated. It doesn't make them a harder worker, its just the opposite in fact, they don't have to work as hard (physically) for their money. And there are good jobs in Greeneville, you just don't know about them because you aren't qualified for them...

I do get paid more than most. I've been everywhere looking and applying and no one will hire me, of course I am working now but not by anyone in Greeneville. I get a good hourly wage for doing a job where I'm at than the same job I would have done in Greeneville, but Greeneville is my home,my family is here, I do not want to pack up my life,what's left of it,and be forced out of it. I'm educated, I have common sense but if you are too educated your common sense goes away. As far as being qualified for jobs, a person with a High School Diploma/GED isn't qualified either unless they start working and be trained for the job right? So I fail to see the point, train me in other fields, then I'd be qualified too, your not going to be "qualified" in anything until your trained.
