Why work so much? ?

Why do people work so hard at thier jobs to make money  - only get sick (usually due to stress) - Only to spend all of thier earned money (doctors hospital bills, current health trends)  trying to get healthy again? Surely once they are healthy again they will return to the work, of course.

    That's a difficult question to answer because it depends on too many variables.  For instance we don't know how well people manage their money.  What their spending habits are.  Some people live their lives as minimalists and suffer bad luck in the health department.  Other people consume more than they need instead of budgeting their money, they live out of their means on a continual basis.

    I think many people work incessantly because they believe that more money makes life easier.  To a certain extent it does but at what price?  Often times people work like this because they have to.  They have dependents (elderly parents, young children) that rely on them financially, housing, transportation and other associated living expenses.  Sometimes people inherit a pile of debt from another diseased relative which often stalls their own future plans.

    I think for people without health insurance or covered by a federally funded healthcare system or even ones that have both but are seemingly outside of the scope of coverage, getting back to work after illness is paramount.  Some workers don't have disability coverage, don't have or opt out of employee benefits and therefore have no income during periods of illness.

    Because most jobs don't pay nearly enough for people to cover all their expenses and build a comfortable savings.  They need to work as much as they can to try to get ahead, because every time an expense comes along it's a financial crisis.  And because of our broken healthcare system that gouges people for everything it can, that sucks away peoples' savings so they have to work as many hours as they can.

    We work to better our lives and pay taxes to support the dumbbells and whiny snowflakes.

    • Isn't that what you are doing? Whining about how hard you work and pay taxes and use school yard banter to prove you are a mature adult capable of producing your own thoughts and not simply copying the previous troll Ricky's response.
