Just goes to show that a college degree isn't everything....some of those who have one, are still out of work for there is too much competition for jobs. Also, most never use the degree they graduated from in the first. Too much emphasis on a piece of paper and more emphasis should be placed on hard work, dedication, capabilites, ethics, learning, listening, arriving to work on time and focus. There are no college courses for these attributes!! Keep up the Good Work Ryan!!

The whole country has limited opportunities- and it's about to be worse. Here is an example of someone who will do the jobs Americans "don't want"- Not only have those jobs been taken by those who are unauthorized to work here, millions more will soon be eligible for the remainder of the jobs- (the ones we do want). In fact, Americans have always wanted and done all jobs- Jobs "we won't do" were filled by entry level, inexperienced, the challenged, and teenagers. This young man is very lucky for the support system he has. Good work.

Just to add a little something here...Lawrence's job opportunities are so limited. I agree with lawrenceloser 100%. Great, uplifting story though.

Though I can relate with the difficulties of these people, try getting a job being over 50 and out of work several years. The job market is tough for many different types of individuals and circumstances.
