Another reason could be employment taxes, I don't know how it's in your country.

Meaning that if you at the age of let's say 20 and competing for a work place whit someone at the age of 30 then the one at 30 will get the job due to him/her having experience before... Therefore leading to more unemployment by young people


Pretty sure everyone pay the same tax rates in Australia. It's based on income level rather than age level.

It's the same over here, I'm not sure if you understood or if I was unclear. But over here we have just like Australia a law that that forces you have to tax every month a certain amount of your income depending on your income, that's fine and all and I've got no problems whit that... But what I've got a problem whit is that we have a law that forces companies to pay a tax fee every time they hire a new employee. It used to be a lower tax rate for companies that hired younger employees which enabled them to start working whitout much hassle, now however they've changed that law so companies have to pay the same amount of tax no matter what age you are... And this has led companies into hiring people in their 30-40's since it's a bigger risk for them to hire someone whose never had a full time job before, therefore leading to young people being unemployed... And I fucking hate that...

I do have a job. It's called being a Certified Badass. Doesn't really feel like a job to me though as it comes naturally.

I definitely misunderstood you, as I'm not aware of this law forcing a company to pay tax for hiring new people... I don't think we have such a thing? I could be wrong.

2. If you're a college student, you can apply to FAFSA and check the work study box to work WHILE you're in school.

It's simple office assistant work usually, or managing the library. Please, start some where. Go to your local elementary school and ask if you can be a staff or something. Please just do SOMETHING

After reading all the comments I feel like the odd one out here x3 The only real reason that I don't have a job (and I've never had one to begin with) is because I have really bad anxiety issues. Just the mere thought of getting a job makes me nervous and kinda scared. I'm not all that great at socializing with strangers and just in general, so I can't even imagine myself going through an interview. It seriously just seems terrifying O_O But yeah, obviously there's some things I need to work on as this is something that most people probably don't struggle with to the same degree as me xD
They do, they probably aren't posting because they don't want to be perceived the wrong way.

Working is overrated. Instead I fix jets as a hobby with a bunch of like-minded individuals 12 hours a day and get government compensation.

People who don't work are:
A) Lazy
B) Not settling for a job they don't want
C) Lazy
D) Too broken for work
E) A and B
F) All of the above

I think people should at some point in their lives: work customer service, work (active duty/in the) military, and work period (if able). Just some things that make you a more well-rounded individual. And that's not a fat joke.

You really are a jerk. Obviously you are very unhappy with your pathetic life and feel the need to lash out at people who are struggling just to make yourself feel better.

For the record, I do work, but I don't have to. The only reason I work is to give more money to my kids so they can do whatever they love to do in life without basing decisions on money so much. I have no debts, no more mortgages to pay, and enough income from rental properties to live off of should I decide to become "lazy" one day and quit my job. I have studied hard and worked hard for my entire adult life and my parents are pretty wealthy, which I won't apologise for. Usually I hate bragging about money but it's time someone put an ignorant person such as yourself in your place and that someone might as well be me.

I have three friends who are all MDs and currently not working. One quit her job to take care of her autistic son. Another because her husband is making enough money so she wanted to spend more time with their kids. And a third because his family is super wealthy and he decided he wants to just travel and enjoy life. It's their money and their life so who are you to judge them for not working? I'm sure they've worked harder to get to where they are in life than an internet troll such as you have.

It's true some people are lazy but that does not apply to every person who is not working. In fact it does not apply to most people who are not working. Other posters have listed various reasons. So for you to make that statement means you are completely idiotic and/or have not had enough experience in life. You need to stop being ignorant and think before you write more idiotic stuff. It makes you look really bad, just an advice.

BTW, since you think so highly of yourself, what do you do for a living? Let me guess, 47, divorced, your kids are druggies and hate you, working a dead end job for the past 30 years, hates "libtards" and "obummer."

PS. Every job I've had is because of networking. I was just very lucky to know certain people, and a lot of people looking for jobs are not that fortunate. I'm not going to judge people just because they don't know the right people.


That's nice, you're rich, congrats.

I screwed up three attempts of trying to get a job because of laziness. However, I need to look for a representative from a job training program. Then I'll be able to attend workshops to building resumes and stuff. If that fails, I'm going to give federal work study another shot.

Well, I have school currently, and I'm not even of the age to start working really. But maybe next year, I will.

I feel like the Crunchyroll forums are the last place you'll get any legitimate excuse for people not working. The majority of people on these forums are either too young to be able to get a job, or otherwise. I personally am in school and have to work a part time job along side it while my parents help me with what I can't pay for.

As for jobs not being available, I can only speak for people in the DFW area in Texas, but it feels like there are job opportunities literally flying out of people's butts. Of course everyone is moving here because we actually know what money is and how to properly spend it, so my experience here doesn't really reflect America at large.

Note: That part about Texans knowing how to spend money is just a joke. I know other people know how to spend money. I'm just being cheeky.

I would love to have a job and have been looking for one for 2 years. Apparently, the main reason that companies won't hire me is because I don't have any experience but, how am I supposed to get experience if no one will hire me? I have even volunteered at libraries, animal shelters, and homeless shelters (over 7 years) that can be used as "experience" but still no luck. Yet, one of the places I was rejected from hired a guy who obviously has no work ethic and doesn't even know basic manners. I'm not going to give up on looking for a job but, it seems like no matter how hard I try, I make zero progression.

They don't want to hire people who don't have the guts to lie.
