Why do people think everybody can always fall back on low-wage no-skill jobs when you lose your job?

As if they're in never ending supply. People can also be overqualified. Companies don't want to hire you if you're just using them until you get a job you're qualified for. Everybody thinks they're entitled to these jobs or something? I'm sick of people telling me that I need to go get a McDonalds job until I can get another accounting job paying $50,000/yr. Not everybody who's unemployed can just go get a minimum wage job.

You never know until you try and having a job cleaning toilets is better than having no income at all. Would you rather be a whiney bum, setting around complaining because you cant find the job you want? I mean, I know where you're coming from but assuming anything is not good. There are still people out there... More
