There is one thing we can all agree – although our society is constantly developing it seems that certain things are falling behind, and stable employment is one of those. The unemployment rates throughout Western countries have been higher than in the past few decades, and that is not a good trend to keep up with. The USA is an excellent example of people having trouble to keep their 9 to 5 job and provide for their family each and every month. On the other hand,...

Addicted To A Certain Kind Of Sadness
