    they were begging for part-time workers in Indiana. Literally, every fast food sign has "HUGE Job Opportunities, inquire inside"

    That may have been when the older Baby Boomers started their evil conspiracy to cut their kids out of any jobs . Us greedy bastards. Taking away all those minimum wage jobs when a recent graduate in Marketing could get 6 figures.

    We didn't "get it", you know internet n shit,  so we were obnoxiously cut from every job possible unless one knew Cobol for Y2K.

    So we were pretty well positioned to dominate the low wage job market and DENY , yes DENY our own kids the opportunity of even becoming a underpaid management trainee at MickieD's where uniforms needed industrial grade solvents to rid them of the grease collected in a single shift.
