@Alan Benard@facebook Also, you sir, are an idiot.
@NJB Exactly! If you are an able-bodied, educated person, as the writer clearly is, and you choose to make substantially less money then you are capable of because you want to be a writer or the like, why should I have to subsidize that?
Karina, someone with your qualifications would have no trouble finding a top-flight job in either the food service or housekeeping industries.
@Username Where do you see the term "lifestyle" in my post? My point is just that the author of this piece has made a choice to A) live in a very expensive city and B) pursue a difficult career path. Not to be needlessly harsh, but if the job market here is telling her no, maybe she should listen, instead of asking for a hand out. Ultimately it would reduce economic and social distortion in both the Brooklyn media market and Omaha real estate market.
I like this piece and generally sympathize with you, but part of the reason you're unable to find work is because you've chosen to look in a hyper-saturated market (New York + Media) that's not very meritocratic. I think society should subsidize people's lives, but not their dreams. Maybe you should just move to Omaha and sell real estate.
screw you, asshole. take your airline miles and shove them up your ass.
