PS - what field you work in?

I am a volunteer and paid professional firefighter (I am in two different agencies) and an emergency services officer. I am also a part-time disability care worker as that provides stable work loads and thus income.

Before that I used to be a cleaner, which paid for my tertiary level education.

I don't think I have done to bad for a high-school drop out who was homeless at one point.

Exactly. Hard work and determination can definitely take you places in this country if you are willing to make an effort and have a long-term plan with realistic goals. - So good work with your success, you made the right choices and kept working hard at it, it's a good achievement.

I don't generally play the "pity party" game that others like to play, mostly because I have been at the bottom... And I care for those who are generally worse off anyway. So whilst I may seem "harsh" in my approach, some people need a dash of reality.


Not bad at all for a high school dropout. TBH I would have loved to be out there out and about in field somewhere, however in Eastern Europe manual labour jobs used to pay like shit (maybe they still do I don't know never looked into it since I left), and the office jobs paid well, hence why I went to higher education, cause it was embedded in my mind that.  Then later on in life, when some of your friends become blue collar works and some white collar workers, you find out wow ok you can make money in a manual labour job in this country provided to stick to it and learn and become experienced. Knowing that I will never push my child into a profession, I will tell them be something that you can get work for. Blue or White it won't matter.

Nothing wrong with tough love. I always tell people tell it to me straight then hide behind fake messages. You can't fix what you don't know is a perceived problem by someone.

I am the incompetent person that could only get a job if it was handed to them by mummy/daddy works in a small business, trade apprentice or a job through nepotism where mummy/daddy being manager at a company.
Employers/businesses do not want to employ the wrong people and spend more time and money to do the job properly.
Why employ someone with low IQ and mental health issues ahead of a normal person that has no issues?
I have no idea what work I am capable of doing. No car license rules out a lot of jobs like Uber/taxi driver, delivery driver, factory, cleaning and many menial jobs require a driver's license. Not having driver's license makes me unemployable.

Economic migrants have been given jobs ahead of local workers for a long time and it has been covered up by the government.
The majority of available jobs are never advertised and are handed to economic migrants that are flown into skilled and unskilled jobs ahead of local job searches. There are many jobs that local workers never had a chance of applying for and will never get because employers bring in cheap foreign workers to take jobs to work for lower wages and help boost companies profit margins. Reducing cost of wages helps boost profit and reducing wages is the best way. From a business view it is great but local workers miss out on jobs. 

Applying for jobs online is a waste of time, because most emails are never read and automated rejection response if you are lucky. Knocking on businesses door and being persistent is probably better way of finding employment than useless online applications or sending useless emails. No one checks emails, automated repose or emails never received. A physical presence, passion and determination is going to be harder to ignore that unless online applications or emails that no one reads or ever responds to.

It is hard work to gain employment in this  country. I would move to any other country in this world and it would be easier getting a job. Australia is the hardest job market in this world to get a job. If you are lucky to have a job in this country it is hard work to keep that job and not get replaced by easy to bring in cheaper foreign worker. You are very lucky to have a job in this country. I hope you do not get replaced by economic migrants that can work harder for cheaper pay rates and they will not join Unions.

Economic migrants also do jobs that local workers do not want to do.
