    What makes you think that the above you have listed doesn't apply to me? You cannot make rash assumptive inclinations like that.
    I made no assumptions about you. The thread was started by you on a 'rant' and all you suggested about yourself was that you were pissed about the situation. I've no idea how you might be personally involved.

    The OP isn't talking about these positions, they're talking about retail and other relatively unskilled jobs that usually ask for experience. You can't get experience in this area without someone giving you a chance without experience, which is seldom seen in job advertisements for these positions. They usually state you need at least a year's experience in that field which is impossible to get if this is what they're all asking for.
    There is always volunteering or general work experience where there is no type of financial gain - why do you think people do that in the first place?
    To gain all of that experience of course.
