The world is rigged against men, females are considered first in any none gender based top jobs, men wouldn’t help men if they ain’t related by blood. The only thing remaining in the job hunt is the despicable jobs that no human should be doing and they’ll be forcing that on graduates and the irony is, no woman wants to be with a struggling man. Tell me why these people won’t do what it takes to eat even if it’s legal/illegal 🤷🏽‍♂️”
