Bill need to get a job
Janitor son = Considered a Loser
Janitor daughter = Most don't seem to care
This way of thinking is sexist in both ways, funny enough. It treats girls like children, making it okay to judge them with easier standards (as if they're not capable of more). And it bases a guy's worth on his monetary success/ prestige, even if that doesn't actually make him happy.
I notice this type of low-level thinking a lot.
A lot of union janitorial jobs where I live. Good paying jobs with great benefits. Man’s got to make a living.
I'm currently a janitor and I'm deeply ashamed of myself, if that answers your question. I'm probably the least successful financially of my immediate family. My life is waking up in pain followed by sorrow in the evening and a quiet resignation of discontent to cap it all off before bed. My father thinks I'm a failure, but probably for other reasons
Nah as long as they're happy I wouldn't care. It's important to make enough money to be independent, but beyond that do whatever makes you happy.
Worst job I've ever had, and even though I was very good at it I'll never do it again. Completely soul crushing.
I would have no problem with it.... especially if he was that kick-ass janitor in the teen spirit video.
$42/hr? Do they call him in for consultation on bathroom or trash related crimes?
The janitor at my gym is a super cool dude. No matter the time of day, he always greets everyone with a smile and says something like, "how are you my friend? Good?"
We might not all acknowledge each other as members of the gym for one reason or the other, but we all acknowledge him because we know he's a cool dude who just so happens to clean up after our dirty asses.
If he could support himself financially and was genuinely content with his job,I wouldn't mind if my son was a janitor
Or some sort of conspiracy theorist that wrote garbage books
Doesn't Janitor get paid pretty well? Regardless it's a good job, without janitors we would be working at filthy places. Mad respects for janitors.
Nope, if he was happy and lived life with integrity...I would support..
You bastard, I was going to ask how he liked them apples..
You do realize that civilization would collapse without all the low paid workers like janitors, lawn mowers, burger flippers, etc. Even a little further up the totem poll we would be absolutely fucked without things like truck drivers to deliver your food and clothes to you. Its baked into the system. Without low paid poor people, civilization can't survive.
When I was in college, I had a friend from that town who did not go to college at all and had no plans to. He landed a job with the college as a janitor. He now makes $55k there. Ironically, his wife is a professor there and makes $57k.
My mother makes it pretty clear she doesn't approve of me working as a security guard. She is always harping on me to find a higher paying job, and to do something that takes advantage of my intelligence. My sister's are all pretty successful in a monetary sense.
I just don't view life the same way that they do. I value free time more than money. At my current position, I can browse the internet and learn about things I'm interested in everyday, while working. I don't do it because I'm lazy. I do it because it makes me happy, and I always enjoy learning about what's going on in the world, reading about new technology, politics etc.
I don't have a family to provide for, and I never will, so I don't have the same incentives to find better pay. I have asked for a raise recently, but it didn't work out.
I also have extreme social anxiety, so I can't talk myself up the way others can. I'm more likely to undersell myself than oversell myself, and I don't actually believe I have any real special qualities.
If they asked me in an interview what I can do better than other people, or what my skills are, I'd likely say nothing and none. I don't consider myself special.
I have nothing to really offer an employer, and there is no real good reason for them to consider me for a higher paying position.
If he was happy then I'm fine with it.
Would not bother me. Maybe he’s also serving at a food bank and has awesome hobbies and good friends.
