In your opinion, is having a job - any job- better than having no job at all?


I suppose this depends upon what you mean by "better." In my opinion, any job is better than no job at all. I have seen this first hand. No job at all, especially for extended periods of time, often leads to depression, low self esteem when one MUST ask friends or relatives for spending money, and that often leads to alcohol, drugs, and the list goes on. On the other hand, I have seen that person get a menial job BUT it kept him busy, his time was occupied, there was cigarette money at least coming in so he didn't need to beg for smoke money, and the list goes on. Having a job also helps when applying for another job. Often it is devasting to put on an application that "I am not employed at the present time." I hope this helps. Its just a personal opinion.
