HGC, the words “cool”, “wonderful”, and “fabulous” in a short post test positive for sarcasm.[/quote]
Not at all sarcastic. I do think it’s a positive change, and wish I had been exposed to more opportunities to live and work abroad other than just the Peace Corps when I was a fresh grad. The opportunities may have been there, but as the internet was just starting to evolve in the mid-90’s when I graduated from college, those opportunities were hard to find.
I think, like has already been said, that the phenomenon of youngsters working for lower pay is nothing new and does happen all over the world. Recent grads at home, too, need to get their foot in the door oftentimes through internships, volunteer work, or working for peanuts, just to get some experience on their CVs.
