low rates of pay
Everyday on Facebook people post and tell others “Don’t give up.” They are nice sayings but the pandemic has taken its toll on the world. Not to mention, violence is cropping up heavily in the United States and a few European countries. Large numbers of people have lost their jobs and have no idea when they will be employed again. Many businesses have closed resulting in fewer positions available. Looking for work is not easy. Many of the positions available are for lower pay because the companies know individuals are desperate. It is wrong as there is inflation and everyone has the same bills to pay every month. Employers should really try to think it through and remember what it was like when they might have been struggling. All you see on the internet are people who can’t go on and are acting out their aggression on other individuals. Just the other day, a woman was killed over road rage while she was on an anniversary getaway with her husband. I am sure people are telling him ‘don’t give up.’ Life isn’t easy but if we dwell on everything that is wrong, nothing right will ever happen. There are videos all the time on Facebook about men and occasionally women, leaving their families. The person left behind always tells themselves, “Don’t give up.” They make a plan and have the determination to make it without their partner. In the Good Gus series there were never any stories where people gave up. The point of the series is to remind children if something goes wrong, there is always a solution.
