Co workers

I must confess no matter how many years I work in my current environment I cannot get used to the fact that a certain portion of the staff are not well educated enough to actually qualify for the jobs they are being paid to do. Many of them have been hired in the past by having friends or neighbors or spouses or whoever in this large organization (non profit, services sector). We have scholarships and mentors aplenty but these sneaky illicit money grubbers refuse to give in, sneering at the hard won academic credentials and work done by others if they do not like their style or opinion. preferring to bitch about their lack of opportunity, rather than do the work necessary to do the certificates or diplomas or degrees whatever. So these are also the people who are most vocal and active at work in manipulation of positions, also they are whiners and complainers for whom nothing is ever good enough, or to their taste. They just are there for the money. There are even a few who think they are reincarnated from the past and they milk that for all its worth with the supernatural freaks. Charmers one and all. There are also those who often have neurotic issues but kiss ass really really well. (sigh) oh well another day another dollar, another week closer to retirement (pointing to the calendar).

That's a Nasty Post

And really, I think the co-workers you hate could probably write an almost identical post about you.
That BS about credentials? C'mon now, maybe you're the one in the wrong line of work. I've known quite a few people who were more talented, hard-working, and knowledgeable than candidates with the right 'credentials' - it's actually a complicated topic.
I think you need to look more deeply into your issues, and perhaps seek some professional counseling because all that seething anger, hatred, and bitching is going to hurt you in the long run.

I've been told by a few immigrants to the region on how nepotistic it is and how difficult it is to get a leg up. I think they thought it would be different because Canada loves to propagate itself as so advanced socially and it would be a paradise compared to their countries - which are notorious for nepotism. I get the feeling many immigrants get a nasty wake up call in Canada and why many leave. They experience more hurdles in life than the government will admit to.

So poorly written

With all of the gramatical errors in the confession it was hard to believe that the person writing it was qualified themselves.

I’ve seen legitimate union jobs not even posted and then handed to uncredentialled and inexperienced siblings, friends, etc. so many times it’s alarming.
