Bottom line – a lot of Americans don’t have to directly deal with consequences of their actions until they’re adults and then it is a shock to their system. A plague of many American males is lack of morals and I’m not talking morals in terms of “don’t kill” “don’t steal” but the moral obligation we have to meet our obligations.
When someone is hired to do a job they’re not there to draw a paycheck. They’re being paid less in a dollar amount than what they produce so that the owner, or manager, can be more productive. This is a tough concept to grasp for some people but if you’re not generating more in value than what you’re being paid than you shouldn’t be employed.
Few young men these days don’t know how to stand on their own two feet and cover the ground they stand on. Own your actions, own your reactions, and have some pride in yourself by having pride in your work.
