Another one: There’s jobs where I live or near where I work.

Why it sucks: Over 9% of the population of the United States is unemployed.  Unless there are enough jobs available for that many people, then you can’t just expect everyone to go out get a job.  Even if there were that many jobs, some employers would not hire people because of any of the following reasons: too old, too young, too little experience, too much experience, unemployed too long, not unemployed long enough, too tall, too short, too fat, too skinny, too white, too not-white.  (Yes, discrimination exists even when it is illegal.)
