Get some real experience

John-Paul Witt | Monday, February 22, 2010

To Mark Easley (“Words of wisdom,” Feb. 18),

As a holder of a four-year degree from a prestigious (I hope) university, I completely disagree with your “advice” to working people. I don’t know how much experience you have in a 9-to-5, but especially now, it’s a struggle to get by even with a degree and a good job. It’s even harder when your job involves cleaning up after spoiled college kids and holds no appeal whatsoever. To quote you, “It is very pretentious to think you know what is best for others.” I hope you get some real-world wisdom before you criticize people who are working hard for a living.
