Have you spent Thousands of dollars and untold hours perusing a Degree that your counselors assured you would get you a good job or any job at all? Have you discovered age discrimination is still alive in West Virginia even in Government positions. Have you discovered that many jobs you trained for and spent thousands on have been filled by applicants from out of state even after you paid thousands to State institutions. Many of these counselors,professors and administrators are selling false hope to West Virginia students who have chosen college over a vocational degree. Why are so many State jobs being filled by out of state workers?

Employment rates for new college graduates have fallen sharply in the last two years, as have starting salaries for those who can find work. What’s more, only half of the jobs landed by these new graduates even require a college degree, reviving debates about whether higher education is “worth it” after all.

Why are are our teachers leaving the State,unable to find a job where they were born and educated?
Why are many gas field related jobs going to out of State workers?

Why are State contracts being awarded to Ohio and Pennsylvania Companies?
I graduated in 2010 and have simply given up on finding a decent job in my home State.
A lot of wasted money and time went into my degree.

Hey Graduate,

Up yours!

What makes you think that because you have a college degree that you deserve a good job?

Just look at me.....I am a worthless, cry baby, piece of crap that can't do anything.

I learned to be a 'yes' man, to suck up to those above me, and to put down those below me when I was with the gas company.

what?? do you think that you are too good to go out and learn to suck up as I did!

Well if you worked for Hope you had to be Family,friends,or SUCK that's the only way you could get on with Hope.
After they reorganized they put A stop to nepotism and cronieism.

Jack me off,

You give too much credit to the suck ups and in bred nepotism that worked at the gas company.

You need to give some credit to pieces of dead weight like me who were the real back bone of the company.

I sat around that place with my head up my rear end for 35 years.

Give me some credit for being a piece of dead weight.

Were you part of the Breakfast brigade that stopped at Moores Restrant every morning
For an hour while still on the clock?
