i find it absolutely ridiculous that he said theres still jobs out there right now because theres hardly any. and when you do get called for an interview, they are usually interviewing at least 20 people for that one spot. i have experienced that not too long ago. i have had one interview in the last six months and it took them about a month just to get all of the interviews done.

I completely disagree with Daniel Seddiqui's assertion that "there are endless opportunities for anybody" when it comes to finding employment. Given the context of his unrealistic statement, I would consider myself to be a person who would fall within his all-inclusive category of "anybody." However, I am an unemployed, middle-aged, white male who suffers from emphysema. In the current employment culture which places a higher priority on youth and diversity than it does on other, more important aspects (such as education, experience, talent, ability and a track record of professional successes), my own age, gender and race preclude me from being given serious consideration for most (if not all) of the positions for which I am abundantly qualified. Even my status as an honorably discharged military veteran has done little (if anything) to improve my chances of finding work. And when you factor in my current pulmonary condition, there are NO employers who are willing to add me to their payrolls. It would be interesting to learn if Mr. Seddiqui retains that same perspective in another 30 or 40 years. I doubt he will.

Why are you playing the race card.I doubt if your race or age has anthing to do with you not finding a job...You just said that you have emphysema.Did you ever stop to think that maybe this has something to do with it.Employers are not going to hire anyone with a life threatning illness..They have to think about insurance cost how many time you will have to call in sick ETC..

Amerie, do you think people with chronic illnesses are unemployable? These folks have to make a living, too.

I agree with you 100% but dont play the race card and the gender card when you dont get hired.Because I doubt if that had anything to do with it.The man has emphysema thats probaly why he cant find a job.
