I would probably have better odds playing the fucking lottery.

And there are no more economically viable jobs left that have any real purpose. The American economy has become a sad caricature of its former self and exists only to support its cancerous self and those few at the top who use it to plunder everything from everyone.

I studied my entire life in public schools and worked part time in mc donalds starting third year highschool,washing cars on weekends and going out perhaps 5 times a year with friends to fucking earn some money because my dad would give me none other than pay for my food, house and education, and i amassed 25k Reais, with which i started trading stocks, and now 2 years later i'm up 20k and making bits of money everymonth while going to university, with which i may find no empleyment because my country is in the biggest recession it ever had.

I'm fine with doing regular work. I enjoy my job. It's a little boring and frustrating at times, but I don't think I'm anywhere near qualified or capable of running my own business.

I've got a great credit score, could get a business loan if I wanted, but I'm pretty scared. Dad tried to start two companies himself, both of which failed and put him into serious debt. If something like that happened to me, I'd probably be fucking crushed, especially since I have no family or friends to fall back on if something goes wrong. Maybe someday I'll open up that donut shop I've always wanted.

Until then, I'm content with getting by, occasionally living well, and not making too many waves.

@RumChicken

Wage slavery is the path of least resistance, and that is why it is the way it is.

Nevertheless, there's a sweet spot to be had that offers both decent pay and work-life balance, and not only is that something to strive for, but it also offers a fantastic opportunity to reinvest that abundant "life" time into pushing yourself even further in life.

@lostmypassword

What @Ignoramus
said.
My father was born in a poor small town in the rural deep south and worked picking cotton before he even started elementary school.

Decided it wasn't the life he wanted, studied hard and took advantage of every opportunity put in front of him, and eventually became an engineer, manager, entrepreneur, and investor over the course of his career, and retired a millionaire in his early 40s.

My circumstances growing up weren't anything close to his, but when I wasn't at school or studying I was shut up in my room constantly self-educating and developing my skillset in computing and software development. The only money spent on me was also food, housing, education, and an old car.

Despite being actively discouraged from entering this field since jobs were being outsourced in droves during the 2000s, I now enjoy a lucrative job, and frequently attract attention from industry giants.

On top of that I'm in the process of attempting to bootstrap a business, and pushing to put in over 80 hours of work a week between it and my day job.

Finding a job - any job - was very difficult in college during the recession years, and I concluded that the only way to get ahead in life is to develop and offer an undeniable skillset to employers, and/or to build my own operation with that skillset.

Maybe in America it is. That's because your country got so used to slaves that it had to treat the working classes LIKE slaves.
Only, unlike slaves, you don't have to feed or house them. You just work them until they break, and hire another.

Here in europe, my skills are valued and rewarded highly. The system barely makes me pay anything, yet I get free healthcare and strong labour laws, and a union fighting for me even though I'm not a member.
Must be pretty shit living in a country where the rich don't subsidise the system.
In britain, the top 5% of taxpayers pay something like 50% of the taxes. Most of my income is flat-out untaxed because they've been putting the threshholds up above wage growth for years to peel the working class voters away from the socialists through bribery.
I recently got a 5% bonus for helping turn the company's fortunes around.

In theory. In application, it's not possible for everyone to at the same time. Your ability to come out of poverty is directly proportional to everyone else taking advantage of that same ability, as it causes the markets to get scarcer with each job taken, which is depressing for someone who either finds no joy in the available successful markets to him, or can't find a successful/profitable market to take advantage of at all (like all of the small business owners in self-sustained communities who were annihilated upon the big business explosion coupled with low-income housing)

It's a depressing thought indeed so I can't blame people for feeling the way they do. The necessary correct response in our capitalist society is to use the negative scenario go fuel your own drive to "get yours" before everyone else, making necessary sacrifices wherever possible.

Depends on what system you play. I enlisted in 2000, busted my ass in a challenging (non-combat) career field, and made E-5 in 3 years (helped that I enlisted as an E-3.) Completed enough college in my time in uniform to qualify for what the USAF used to call "Bootstrap," which will pay you as an E-6 for the last year you're in college, plus cover 100% of your tuition, AND guarantee a slot for OTS to become a commissioned officer. Pay wasn't great in that era, but with no bills (lived in the barracks, ate at the DFAC, drove a shitty car, only "bills" were a pair of small credit cards to build credit, school supplies, and DSL,) so my $24k a year as a SSgt was good.

I've continued to bust my ass and am on the list to make lieutenant colonel next year. When I put in for my retirement at 20 years (just 3 years and a tiny piece away,) I'm guaranteed a pension under the High-36 system of at least $52,900 a year (year 1 based on the current payout.) Not huge, but more than enough for me to live comfortably if I choose not to work. I own two homes (one in my hometown of Sumter, SC, another in Charleston, SC,) both are paid for (and not a penny out of my own pocket except the down payments because they're being rented out,) and I'll only be 38 years old, plenty of time for a second career. My savings and investments are just shy of $900k (unfortunately a quarter of it is in a traditional IRA, not a Roth, so oops, my bad,) so again, I don't need to but I will probably choose to.

TL;DR, sometimes busting your ass can and does pay off as long as you find a place that doesn't ask you to be grateful for the opportunity to do so

Schools not hard. Had a lot of free time except for my third year. Missing it a lot. The jobs not hard either, but it's stressful unless you're working at a small pharmacy. It's been turned into a business so it's about how many prescriptions you can pump out instead of the quality. Theres a lot of dumbasses in my program so if you're even moderately intelligent you can do it.

I have one friend who did his 4 years or whatever and is going to college now "for free" which is cool as hell... butttt... he's 28 just now working on his bachelor's when everyone he went to school with has their masters (like me) and are already established in their fields.

It's basically something to do for 4 years, for most people. It's like, maybe a little better than just working a wage slave job because of the "benefits."
