Job Entitlement

It’s the American, welfare state way, of course, to be entitled to everything, especially a job and benefits. This man is suing Borders Group, Inc. because he wasn’t given adequate warning before losing his job prior to the financially insolvent company going into liquidation. Jared Pinkser is suing under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act that requires companies to give a 60-day notice prior to mass layoffs in a bankruptcy filing (not liquidation). He hopes it is the start of a successful class action lawsuit. What a guy. Borders Group Inc. was in obvious trouble long before the liquidation, and it was well publicized for the prior 3-4 years. Mr. Pinkser, it seems to me, was rather comfortable in his job and he was negligent about seeing the obvious because that meant he would have to be proactive about seeking new work and making changes in his life. Certainly, entitled people should never have to move out of their comfort zone to be responsible for themselves and their future.

    I’m betting that Jared Pinkser is a 20-something or 30-something graduate of both the public schools and a state college who majored in something like “Communications,” “Political Science,” or “Philosophy;” carried a “C-” cumulative GPA, has no social skills, no business sense, no work ethic, no entrepreneurial ambition (obviously not), and probably lives at home with Mommy and Daddy in the same bedroom he grew up in.

    I encounter talentless little losers like Jared Pinkser, ADHD-addled adultolescents, whenever I’m forced to patronize retail brick-and-mortar businesses to buy something essential that can’t be ordered online. These creatures couldn’t make it on their own or adapt to the real world even with someone holding their hand every step of the way. Sadly, they ARE Amerika today and of the future, which is why this country is effectively finished.
