Keep working!

If you have a job, stick to it (unless you have an offer or two to choose from).

If you don't have a job, go look for a job. Or rather, make full use of your time, like helping out at home, take up new hobbies, improve your skills, etc.

For me, i'm thankful for the job that i have, and despite of the ups and downs i have, i'm loving it, and learning everyday!

Anyway, this is a piece of new i got a few days ago from The Star online:

Not the time to be choosy about jobs, says Abdullah

IPOH: This is not a time to be choosy about jobs.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said jobs were plentiful in the country, as shown in the number of migrant workers in the country.

“They are willing to come here to work although they are not well paid.

“I want our people to take over the jobs now held by the immigrants,” he said at the launching of the Rural Action Plan at Ayer Kuning.

Abdullah said people should not be choosy about jobs and hoped that factories would stop taking migrant workers.

“We have nothing against the migrants but the interests of our people must come first,” he added.

Abdullah said government agencies should show villagers the economic activities that could be carried out in their villages, adding that the agencies should facilitate the issuance of licences and permits to unemployed individuals who wanted to venture into business.

Rural and Regional Development Minister Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib said the plan was an extension of the Vision Effort Movement.

“The Government hopes to make villages into advanced, interesting and profitable places,” he said.

Abdullah later told reporters that there was no reason for Pakatan Rakyat states not to implement the plan.

“It is for the good of the people that the Government is coming out with the plan,” he said.

Well, keep working on finding a job, or at your job!~

Love & Peace!~
