I'm Sick of These Lazy, Entitled Free-Loaders Gaming the System and the Job Sites That Are Enabling Them

Sharing is Caring!

Sorry in advance for the rant, but even though the economy is on the rise and we seem to be headed in the right direction, there are still far too many lazy, pathetic, entitled losers amongst us that its’s a drain on the entire system. It’s going to take a lot more than tax cuts to reverse the severe damage 8 years of Obama and his nanny state, leftist friends have done to this country.
I own a small, family-run business in Illinois and we were recently hiring for an office position. We decided to post the position on a few job boards such as Indeed and Zip Recruiter. What happened next really pissed me off.
We had plenty of people who applied for the job in just a few days. We went through all the resumes and chose what we felt were the best six and proceeded to schedule them for interviews. So, these were people who actually applied for the job, responded to our interview request and corresponded with us to schedule a time for the interview. I couldn’t believe what happened next.
We had six interviews lined up over three days. Not a single one of the six applicants showed up for the interview. NOT ONE! Not a single phone call or email. Nothing. All of them simply blew it off. After thinking about it I realized what was happening.
I’m not sure if it’s the same in every state, but in Illinois, in order to continue to receive unemployment benefits, you have to show that you are actively looking for work. These scum were simply using these job sites to “apply” for jobs so they could show they were looking and had interviews. All they had to do was show they had contact and scheduled interviews. This is absolutely disgusting.
These large job sites, such as Indeed, allow for these pieces of shit to more easily game the system. I have since spoken to other business owners and all have said they have had similar experiences. Not only are these people costing the rest of us tax dollars, but they are also making it more difficult for people actually trying to find employment by cluttering up the sites with their bullshit resumes.
I was so mad I actually called and emailed the state unemployment office and reported the names of all of the people who did this. Unfortunately, being in Illinois, I know nothing will happen. I think business owners should be able to report this type of activity and get these low life’s cut off. Not only that, but these job sites should allow for comments from businesses on a persons profile so that others can see they are scammers. Save others the time and effort of dealing with these losers. Keep others from possibly hiring one of these idiots just so they can work a few months and quit so they can get back on unemployment. Obviously that won’t happen either as these sites want as many users as possible. It’s a system that’s a true hinderance to economic growth. Business owners have a hard enough job to have to waste precious time dealing with free loaders.
It’s a shame what 8 years of leftists did to this country. I remember when people used to actually look for work. Actually go to a business and put themselves out there. Now, most of these lazy assholes just upload their bullshit resumes and wait for a business to contact them. Like they’re entitled to the job. God forbid they had to actually work to find work.
Never again will I post a job online as we found a great person to fill the position through word-of-mouth. Not only that, but I will never hire anyone who simply sends me a resume. To me, all that says is I’m too lazy to make an effort. Sorry for the rant, but this really had me pissed off.

  1. The problem isn’t so much the job sites, it’s the agencies that accept those confirmations as proof that they’re actually looking for a job.
    They should demand a written note from the prospective employer that the person actually showed up and at least made an attempt to appear hire-able.

  2. have you noticed the hard to understand HINDUS in the JOB BUSINESS HERE?
    They constantly TROLL the jobs, NEVER tell the PAY or benefits in the adds, they are SO LOW tech that they offer engineering jobs to cooks and WAITERS.The USA has been INVADED and CAN’t even build a wall against this 3rd world TRASH. OF COURSE they SCAM the SYSTEM!!!
    we just GOT a third world Paki running our FCC!!! EXPECT CRIMES and coverups at the FCC!!!
    pc; chitown IS a SHITHOLE run away!

  3. This encourages me because I’m interviewing soon for a job. It’s nice to know that most of my competition will be no-show. If only this were true.
    I agree that people shouldn’t abuse the unemployment system, but there are other explanations for why people are no show. Possibly they don’t exist at all. Job sites need to look like they’re being used, so they may post fake job applicants. Dating sites do this sort of thing, and reddit has been known to puff itself up with fake posts, so it wouldn’t be surprising if job sites are overloaded with fake resumes too. Don’t blame job hunters for this. Blame the business people running these sites, who condone these marketing practices.
    A reason why real job applicants are no shows is that they may apply for hundreds of jobs and schedule dozens of interviews, then pick and choose the best. The internet lets them virtually automate the job hunting process. Maybe your part-time low pay job in the middle of nowhere isn’t competitive in the job market and they see no reason to come to the scheduled interview when they’ve accepted a better offer elsewhere.
    Yes, it would be polite for them to inform you that they’re not coming to the interview and have accepted a job elsewhere. But they don’t, and maybe their perceived rudeness comes from the fatigue and despair that comes from filling out applications and going to interviews that end with, “We’ll let you know,” and then the employer never does. So the way kids look at it, they’re just reflecting standard business practice, that’s all.
    Anyhow, years ago I was on unemployment for a few months (out of decades of employment), and learned what it’s really like.
    Once again there’s this fantasy that Republican business people have about social safety nets being a welfare rip-off. The reality is that you only get half pay and it’s only for six months, and then you have to work a minimum of six months before it’s replenished. Meanwhile, how am I going to afford $600 a month for a room (which is minimum in my area) on $1000 a month unemployment? Also, having large gaps in your employment history is a turn-off to employers and reduces your chance to get a better paying job.
    I’ve never applied for food stamps, but just now I checked it out. With a pension of $750 and no other source of income at present, I could receive $63 a month. That’s a bowl of cereal and a can of chili a day. Wow.
    The total SNAP budget is $70 billion, while the Wall Street bailouts of 2008/2009 were $700 billion, and were followed by a trillion dollars a year in ‘quantitative easing.’ Follow the money. Your exploiters are living in mansions on country estates, not in tents on median strips. And welcome to the 99%, because someday a subsidized corrupt megacorporation is going to run you out of business and you’ll be on the street too. That day may be sooner than you think.

  4. the only cretin is the author. what kind of a moron thinks people want, and are able, to survive on meager unemployment benefits. perhaps your “job” was crap and paid crap wages. nobody wants to live in the “luxury” of unemployment benefits, or SNAP. stupidity is forgivable; ignorance is not.

    • Unemployment for these types is just a weekly draw to augment the other criminal activity ( gaming ) they are participating in. Multi family multi generation group homes just play round robin with the social system as they pool their money and bilk the public for all they can get.Three or four regular weekly checks can cover some mortgage and rent payments adding to the levels of corruption that is really involved here. They always point out those on the bottom of the totem pole and don’t follow the money. Corporations are buying up neighborhoods and turning them into rentals. It is the corporations that are befitting handsomely from the destruction of society and exploiting the people who are easiest to manipulate. That is why there are no deportations or stringent screening of visitors. We are being set up for the fall !

  6. Thank you for the rant. Somebody has to point out the abject dishonesty that has exponentially increased over the years. We have a society the is churning out and admitting in, legally & illegally, socialistic parasites and leftist insurgents. The Sal Alinsky, Clowerd & Piven communistic strategies are playing out in modern society with the help of miseducated and brainwashed stooges for the cause. We have dropped the ball on keeping the government in check and standing up for what is right allowing these types of cretins to populate our once great nation with immoral and inhumane ideologies.
