Bloomberg Business has an exciting new promotion: Parents are invited to use a ripoff someecard to tell their recent college graduate to move the fuck out. Bonus: 12 free issues of Bloomberg Businessweek! Because reading about business will make you better at finding a job.
I wanted to see what kind of life-changing career advice they were offering, and here’s one of the most popular videos from their front page: Why can’t McDonald’s serve Egg McMuffins all day? When you move out and buy a house and car and pay back your student loans early on your McDonald’s salary, you’ll have Bloomberg Businessweek to thank!!!
So do get it, recent grads? It’s your fault the economy is in the tank. Because you’re a drain on the economy for taking out college loans and being unable to find a job that pays above minimum wage after your graduate. Because you caused the housing bubble and the bank meltdowns. Because your generation are the ones in Congress letting Wall Street CEOs slide and not increasing the minimum wage and rewarding mega-corporations with tax writeoffs. Oh, wait, that was your parents! Tee hee. Move out, slacker!
This actually reminded me of one of my favorite Onion articles: Study finds college education leaves most graduates unprepared to carry entire American economic recovery
(Bonus points for anyone else who snickered that they abbreviate themselves to BBW)
(ETA: if you scroll all the way to the bottom, you will see that they issued a micro-apology acknowledging that Millennials did not in fact ruin the economy)
