In the new economy, millennials are fighting for minimum wage jobs, I feel like I’m being put into an arena with other millennials, all vying for the same job.
Today I was at the “Lodi Stadium 12” theater in Lodi, CA. This is the third time I’ve been here for a “job interview” in reality, its much more like a job COMPETITION, a job FIGHT. I have to fight my way through the waves of other millenials vying for the same job, just so I have a slight chance of talking to someone.
The first round of this fight consists of a timed math test, to weed out the mathematically weak. This is the third time I’ve taken such a test, I’ve failed my first time and I’ve passed it last time and this time. Then I get a fake interview, and I’m told “we’re looking for other applicants” by a robotic interviewer.
This immorality has to stop. I’m not a GLADIATOR. But that’s what I feel like. I feel like I’m in a gladitorial ring fighting against my fellow gen Y’ers for a small chance at a position. My brother actually got the SAME job over 8 years ago without all this fuss and competition. I’m literally fighting for the same job, that 8 years later is completely flooded with competition.
