"Great stuff. Let's be creative, when this economy fully open up, we should not be relying on the arrogant people to employ us. Let's do something for ourselves."

"You are far better than these entitled crybabies called unemployed graduates. As if the world owes them jobs, no company sent anyone to varsity with the promise of employment. Hustling is the new norm."

"This is so dope."
