The founding fathers of America wanted a country that offers “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” And this phrase is the ultimate goal for millions of people who have migrated to America. But it is what it is – a Dream and a Pursuit. It is dream that one can never achieve and an endless unproductive pursuit. What am I this critical?
Let me ask. How many people wake up in the morning and look forward to going to work? How many people don’t mind the end of the weekend and the beginning of a week? This is NEVER the case. American life is about getting through the week and to the weekend. Once the weekend is done, the goal is to get through the week as soon and as unscathed as possible, so that we can enjoy the weekend. Everything is geared to help take you through the week as soon as possible, hence the existence of Monday and Thursday night football. But then the weekend slips by oh so quickly, and we are staring down the familiar start of another painful week. Why is it painful? The week is always painful. The week is always stressful. The week is always dreaded. Why is this? Why is work in America always so stressful? This is because the workplace is always understaffed and we are overworked. Every job that a person does is more than what one person can comfortably do. Of course, employers have their reasons – reasons that are perfectly valid. But at the end of the day the average American hates his/her job. Some jobs have more security than others. Those jobs require more education and more work including weekend work. A person working a less secure job is worried about that very issue.. that it is not secure.
America is the richest country in the world (as of today). Unbeknownst to its unsuspecting citizens, America continues to be the richest country at the expense of the Americans.
