    A lot of time I hear people utter sentences like "Have you found a job yet?", "Do you know where can I find a job?", "I have no job..." or "It is impossible for me to find of job."

    I see that people perceive job/work as something essential, that exists naturally in the world and they think the concept of having a job is fairly easy - you go there, do some stuff on a computer or some manual stuff (NOT thinking about the job/effectiveness and persistent laziness is a must), come home and by the end of the month receive your paycheck... and of course find that paycheck too small and rant about it.

    Wow...

    Not once have I seen these people question WHERE does the work and the money come from. They don't realize that a work/job isn't something like gravity - an element that is present at all times. They don't understand that there must a be person that first have an idea, then tries to upscale this idea, hire new people, still find a positive cash-flow, adjust the entire business model to still be able to generate any revenue etc. And then you have your socialist government that tries EVERYTHING to ruin any small and mid-size companies, but I wont bring politics to BHW so enough of that.

    OK, not so sure where I'm going with this, but I want to say one big KUDOS to everyone who is giving a job/steady income for anybody else and please try to educate other people that they have to be active, hungry, follow their dreams and to try to be independent.

    Two quick questions:
    1. WHERE does the work and the money come from?
    2. What's the use of (posting) this thread?

    When you're unemployed and too lazy to do IM, I suppose there's lots of time to philosophize about "work".

    I think the OP is approaching things wrong. Instead of "work" and "money", think "value".
