The children around here are driving flashy cars, while gabbing on the cell phone, while the laptop tells them where to turn. They only wear the latest fashions, and are way too smart to do any kind of manual labor, but not to worry, we have mexican's that are all too willing to take the menial labor jobs that pop up. But where are the teens, and twenty something, spoiled brats going to fit into the workforce? There are new houses poping up everywhere, and factories are closing faster than you can say tax abatement. I shudder to think of what kind of jobs will be available to the next generation's kids? The USA may not be a very friendly place 20 years from now. Crying or Very sad Makes me think twice about having a family.

There are 16 yr olds driving new cars around here also way better then what I drive, I was working at a sawmill at the age of 10 but my 16 yr old turns her head when I mention to her about finding a job. The world is a different place than it was back in the 60's and 70's kids are lazy!
