Folks of my and Happy’s generation grew up being constantly told “work hard and get a quality education and you’ll go far.” So we worked our asses off, we got those college degrees and took on the debt to attain them, and then we found out once we got into the working world that businesses now practice a contradictory system where they want experience along with the degree, but you can’t get the experience without getting a job for which you need that degree. Not to mention the legal slavery that is unpaid “internships,” where you have to take a second job just to pay to work the first.

And when they do pay you, it’s essentially minimum wage.
And little or no benefits.
