Students not the only ones struggling

November 13, 2009 at 2:13 am (Research)

This post title speaks for itself. Students are not the only ones struggling to find work or make decent money. Other people are affected as well. The worst part is, an article on CNN.com says its our military veterans that are falling by the way side. As Veterans Day has come and passed I thought it would be nice to reflect on our military veterans, as I did I was shocked at the unbearable truth that many of them are struggling when they leave the service.

This article titled, “Veterans: Rememberance Days are for the dead, what about the living?” talks about some veterans and how they are disheartened at the fact that they fight for their country and are not even guranteed a job when they leave the military. They are faced with the same predicament students are faced with, and end up doing odd jobs.

It is crazy to think that the people who serve our country so well are not helped when they leave. Not only that all their years of service gets them is odd jobs and minimum wage. Another way to think about Veterans Day, huh?

Students, I would encourage you to not be discouraged as you are not alone, their are veterans next to you going through the same thing.

    I mean it’s no secret that people are having trouble finding work as you already pointed out, but it’s especially sad to hear that people who risked their lives for this country are also being thrown to the wolves when it comes to the job market. But, it’s a dog eat dog world and I guess they are going to have to fight for their jobs like they did for their country. Nice research.
