Millennial's too lazy to volunteer for Fire Departments

Just good capitalists, why waste valuable labor time and not get paid...

Mostly small rural areas that can't afford to pay.  I know they are all over Upstate New York when I was stationed on recruiting duty there.

According to the National Volunteer Fire Council, younger generations are simply not signing up to volunteer. Modern lifestyles involve more transience than in past generations. And more families consist of two-income households or people working multiple jobs, and often employers impose inflexible schedules that make volunteering to fight fires in off hours much more difficult.

On top of those factors, millennials frequently tend to have more debt than previous generations carried. That can make unpaid volunteer work unaffordable and unrealistic.

So I guess all the rural areas will just burn down.

Capitalism's a contact sport, wear a helmet i guess....

Dont look anywhere else but at the past generations that have laid a foundation fir a society that has chipped away at the dignity of work. The whole reason we have an immigration problem is that our society decided proper food production was of barely any importance so wages were squashed to the floor in that sector. And people wonder why only impoversished immigrants who promptly send american $$ back home are the only ones who will do it. The collapse of the american dollar will solve immigration "overnight".

Having personally seen some of the response times of truly rural areas by a volunteer force...   this is pretty much the case as is.

Plenty of smaller towns also have volunteer fire departments, not just farmland.  Thank god some people care about their communities and not just there selves, typical millennials.

Woodys generation is paying ur generations medical, retirement, social security etc,etc. Careful. Not sure if ur generation realizes the ponzi scheme we've been put under. And yeah, even ur private retirement benefits get subsidized by the new incoming workers in each company. Ur generation just thinks "nah we're just gettin what we put in".....ur not. Period. If thst was the case ur benefits wouldnt be anywhere near commesurate with todays prices....

Even if u were wealthy and put away those investments....does that money just magically grow with the correct application of magic fairy dust? No, its dependant on the continued growth of economic output fueled by those still working.

This is EXACTLY what is going on

And it will be the same 30 years from now when the millennials start retiring

It's alarming to see how many people lived a very long time not intrinsically understanding some bare basics. Im not even some finance/econ fuck and I get it. I'm not an outright capitalist nor outright socialist, but we can't have a discussion with people about the right mix for our society because so few people understand the basics of a free market economy and how it can be perturbed to the point people get fed up and swing the pendulum too far the other way. You have to understand at least the basics to understand what we've been put under. If you can't, or just won't as I suspect the case is here, then these constant dogwhistles about commie this or that mean absolutely nothing because you can teach a monkey to hold up anti socialist signs. No different.

I love how it must be that millennials are "lazy" instead of the reality that so many people in this country are paycheck to paycheck even with both spouses working. So taking on some unpaid duty when you have a family to feed and barely any left over time as it is? Pay a nigga, see what happens.
