Most college graduates in America do not want to start at the bottom, why is this happening?

My coworkers , i can't believe them. At work, they don't do anything. Just read books, watch TV( there is one but we're not supposed to watch it), and talk. Boss is a boss that is never there supervising. When she is, then they do stuff. but if she's not there , they don't. They just spend time being dumbasses, listening to hip hop( on boombox ) and things like that. Then they at times, have conversatioins where they say they want to get 18 dollar, 20 dollar per hour jobs. And actually that's their aim, they apply to jobs like that. But i mean, they don't even work here at the low level so how can they possibly be responsible at a more demanding position????!! My gosh. the job we do now is Work in the scanning department Preping documents( remove staples, tape, retape notes, organize) and scanning and moving boxes around. etc. But they don't do nothing and thinkthis job is for uneducated people, that they are better than this. They think they are god's gift or something. One coworker is studying at ITT tech. will get his degree in Networkign. The other is in a college, going to graduate school and his aim is something in Finance. I'm a University graduate and i don't mind working in 12 dollar job. It's work, it's imporatnat and i'm here to help. But these guys, think they are special and should be getting 20, or 26dollalrs per hour. so they don't even work and then they want such high pay??? Unbelievable.

Man, I totally agree. Not to generalize but most Americans want to be on top but not work for it. Then they complain about how people from other countries are taking their jobs. If you dont qualify for the job then its not yours. I'm Asian and get a lot of bullshit. I have been around a couple of people who complained... More
