Someone not having a job = / = not wanting one.
Someone not having a job = / = not trying to get one.
Someone not having a job = / = lazy.
Someone not having a job = / = stupid.
Someone not having a job = / = useless.
Someone not having a job = / = mooching because they can.
Someone not having a job at a time period in your life when you did have one, does not mean they’re not trying as hard as you did. Or that they want it less than you do. Or that they look less places than you did. Or that they’re any lazier less intelligent than you were at the time.
It’s not the same for everyone. It’s not the same now as it was thirty years ago.
It’s not the same in each city or town or country or state.
Some people hit a chance and can snatch it. Others stumble pass it without realizing until it’s too late. Many are never even given that chance. Some people have connections, some people have to claw their way on their own, some people have a tiny nudge in the right direction, others are jerked in all the wrong places. Some people can hit it off quite well at an interview and then crash as soon as they get to working, some can’t handle an interview to save their life but can be the best workers, some people can do both, some people have varying levels. For some it depends on environment. For some, time.
If you easily found a job the second you turned eighteen without prior work experience, good for you. Not everyone can do it. Not everyone is willing to let someone try to do it. If you are still struggling and thrashing to find a job at fifty-two, you are not less than that person who succeeded so young.
Some people also have more skills in open jobs to offer, while others have skills better suited for jobs not available to them so easily. Some people lose their jobs so others can have a chance, some are the reason that new person will not get the job.
Do not tell someone “Just go get a job then”, “go get a job now”, “you don’t try hard enough”, “I could do it so can you”. Do not tell someone they are being lazy because they’ve not managed to get one. You. Have no idea. How hard that person is trying. You have no idea why they don’t have one.
It is not that simple. If it was, then more people would have jobs.
Because quite a few people without jobs want them believe it or not. They’re fighting for them. Struggling to get them. They have mouths to feed and bills to pay, shelter they desire and blankets to keep them warm. Some of them need medication. Some of them need gas to get anywhere. Some need money for other transportation. Some need to pay for a phone.
