Gaming and work: what’s the real story?

I watched my son and many of his peers go through a period of a lot of video play. It was a combination of easy distraction and cheaply filling up the time while waiting for a decent job to show up. For males in this country the deck is stacked against them for entry into good paying jobs. Educated or not. So of course some non producing nitwit will surmise that video games are the cause of lack of work drive in young men, when really it is raft of other social and economic ills. If you put every other minority group ahead of working class group of men you make it harder for them to be considered on just merit. There was a time when we valued our men. Now not so much, so better video games than getting in the way of the special interests.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
