I realize that schadenfreude is a particularly ignoble emotional response, but how am I expected to control myself after reading:"...Luis Illades, an owner of the Urban Rustic Market and Cafe on North 12th Street, said he had seen a steady number of applicants, in their late 20s, who had never held paid jobs: They were interns at a modeling agency, for example, or worked at a college radio station. In some cases, applicants have stormed out of the market after hearing the job requirements.
“They say, ‘You want me to work eight hours?’ ...."”
[Yeah, yeah, I know. Schadenfreude is the entire point of the piece.]
