Feeling Unemployable Yet?

Liberal millennials are all about feelings. They want their feelings to dictate the entire universe. Anything they don’t like or anything that hurts their feelings, they want banned and want it gone. If oxygen offended a liberal millennial, there would be a petition and protests to get rid of it.

Now, when I was a kid, I was taught that throwing a fit to get your way doesn’t get you what you want. Liberals, on the other hand, were never taught such a thing because that is exactly what they do to get their way.

Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, colleges and universities started to cave in to these fits and cater to students’ feelings. Colleges across the country are starting to become a haven of liberal fascism: anything that offends liberals or hurts their feelings is outlawed on campus.

The fact that colleges are letting liberals have their way only feeds their ridiculous egos and makes them believe that if their feelings can dictate school policy, they can dictate anything.

What they don’t realize is that this is completely untrue. If you’re an employee, businesses do not care what hurts your feelings.

Of course, there are businesses who do cater to any and every liberal cause, such as Target. Businesses like law firms, hospitals, or basically any other major corporation, however, will typically not care about what offends you.

They care about professionalism and making sure their employees do their jobs correctly. That may sound rather harsh, but that’s just the way business works.

Businesses conduct business and make money. Yes, they do care about their employees, but only if their employees are professional. If you let your feelings dictate everything in life, it is guaranteed you will not make it far in a corporate career.

Here is an example of what I’m talking about. One thing liberals love to do is express themselves through their physical appearance, particularly feminists and social justice warriors. These are people with various types of nose rings, purple hair, ridiculous tattoos, and in extreme cases, blue armpit hair.

Typically, you will not see these people working the greatest jobs. You can expect to see these people working at Wal-mart, coffee shops, and Hot Topic.

Why, you ask? Because CEOs and managers value professionalism—and that includes your appearance.

There has been some liberal outcry with this particular part of the business world. There are those who believe it is unfair to have such strict dress codes in the workplace and want to get that changed. The problem they run into is that businesses do not care if their rules and policies hurt your feelings.

For example, in an article written by Alison Green, a group of interns unhappy with the dress code policy at a company decided to ban together and sign a petition to get the dress code changed. After they confronted their boss, he called them into a meeting and fired them all.

I disagree with Green’s claim that young people of all generations act this way. She does not believe it was a millennial thing. Though no generation is perfect, the millennial generation is exactly the type that would do something like this.

It’s no secret that we are the entitlement generation; it’s that exact sense of entitlement that would give an SJW intern the nerve to propose changes to the company’s dress code to accommodate their new septum piercing.

This sense of entitlement must come from how millennials were brought up. They were brought up by parents that focused on their kids’ self-esteem; they were taught a sense of self-importance by their parents. Though it is good to have high self-esteem, liberal millennials have twisted that and now believe that the world owes them everything because of how important they are.

This is the everybody gets a trophy generation. They believe their opinion and feelings (trigger warning: Trump) trump everything else. Their sense of entitlement gives them the nerve to make all kinds of demands from their employers.

They demand higher wages for doing less work and working lesser jobs. They believe that the whole world is there to cater to their feelings, and when it doesn’t, they claim injustice. The business world has their own set of rules that companies have to follow. That’s something every college student needs to understand before they enter the workforce.

If you want to make it in any job, you need to act and dress professionally; if you accept the job, you need to negotiate your pay rate initially and not complain about it later (that includes benefits too), and you need to follow all of their rules. That’s just how the world works.

If you don’t like it, your employer will not care. They don’t care about your safe spaces, they don’t care about your self expression, they don’t care about your feelings. They’re a business. They don’t have time to deal with people who will cause issues. Your feelings cannot and will not overrule a company’s policy.

This is a very important lesson to learn because as college students, when we graduate, we will be new to any job we have. Signing petitions and making demands based on personal preferences and feelings is career suicide and you can bet it will cost you your job.

The company does not have to hire you; they choose to hire you and you should show gratitude. Be professional. Most importantly, remember that business do not care about your feelings.
