I'd been wanting to type this out while attempting to put all the words right in this post. Sometimes, when it comes to discussing about our world and the environment we're living in, people usually felt hard to express themselves, as we see the world with a large diversity of perspectives, regardless the affiliations of our family, religious, and societal institutions around us. By the way, this is not an ACADEMIC WRITING. Long post, but it's worth reading. :)
2 weeks ago, I went to an economic function in the MCA Building. And a speaker by the name of Nigel Foo, a senior analyst of Malaysian economics presented a brief view of the global financial crisis. IT ISN'T OVER YET. Even things in California today don't work out well. Recession is still a terrible catastrophe and it even cut out the jobs for government workers and teachers.
Editor's Note: This is only my opinion of the world's economy. Viewers' discretion are advised. You may share your opinions here, but please do so with a sound mind.
I'd been actually thinking about the word, "money" all the time. At first, during my teenage times, I always wonder, why an average human is born being fed, and later being sent to school, graduate, and being forced to work for the sake of money. During your works, comes office politics and unnecessary conflicts. And people who work usually don't have the chance to live their own lives well. They just serve the top pyramid's self-interests, not their own.
I heard from many of my "Aristotles", my teachers, of course, saying that there are too many people having degrees nowadays. To successfully get a job, you need a Master degree.
If you disagree with what I'm saying now, then ask yourself. Why employees stay as static as they are and the employers soar higher? Even so, the employers face even more stresses as they compete with other organizations.
To add more terror, job security is an issue nowadays. So, you just imagine that you're just invest your 3 years and RM 60K in universities and suddenly you are not able to get a job. Even if you get one, you're still worrying if you suddenly got fired.
I tell you a testimonial of a man I knew. During his working days in a company, he had a good job performance that impressed his boss. Despite of having a good friendship with his boss, he suddenly got fired one fine day. It's such a betrayal to him. Thank God today he's an IBO - Independent Business Owner.
See the world today? Well, I'm just talking about the perspective view on the world of employment. This financial crisis has made billions of people unemployed worldwide. I remembered a newspaper article entitled "25,000 to lose jobs after CNY" during this February. It's really eerie.
