    Everyone wants their lives to have meaning. Everyone wants to see their labor make a difference in the world. The poor are entitled to this desire as much as anyone, perhaps even moreso, because their labor tends to be more difficult and has fewer financial rewards and securities.

    My granny told me years ago that one of the answers to life was to decide this: to you live to work, or do you work to live.
    Secondly, she told me that some people do get lucky and love their jobs. However, as long as you got paid, you ought to be content.

    Well, that advice served me well. I did not live to work, but had my successes. You are not what you do to make money.

    A job should be something you do so you can have a life. I know many seniors that have lost their pensions due to mismanagement and an inept government agency that oversees them. With todays young workers that see their parents work for 30 years and not see a pension, is it any wonder they are not loyal? Business has done this to themselves.

    And to think that the government stole SSI, which meant that every one will stay as long as possible working, which mean that the job market is filled.
