Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “The crowning fortune of a man is to be born to some pursuit which finds him employment and happiness, whether it be to make baskets, or broad swords, or canals, or statues, or songs.”
Not sure employment is a “crowning fortune.” I’ll let others debate that.
Employment, however, is vital. It puts food on the table. A house overhead. Gas in car.
My wife has employment concerns. That’s not strong enough. Frustration? Disdain? Getting closer. Disgust? There you go! Wish people hired on merit. Not on who you know.
We don’t know the right people!
