we, as a people (americans), are soft. many people under the age of 50 do not know what hard times and/or sacrifice is all about. we have been enjoying good jobs and riding high on the hog, then when something bad happens we don't know how to deal with it. the depression era americans learned how to deal with adversity, they adjusted and moved on. (most of em anyway) we have had it too soft; now we don't want to do jobs/work that we feel is beneath our dignity and we look down our sorry noses at the "foreigners" who are just glad to have a job! we have forgotten the notion that work, any work, is a noble quest whether you clean toliets or are a CEO. (yes; i have cleaned many a toliet)
