NO people do not really want to work.
People want to collect a pay check or collect unemployment.
People have mortgages on their houses they can not sell.
People cannot move to a new location for a job
Debt is central to fragility.
Everybody is cutting spending and running out of things to cut.
It could be years before we feel that we have pared enough debt to start spending readily.

I'm not sure everyone "wants" to work, however, most of us "need" to work in order to survive. The fundamental necessity for survival is money. One cannot rent an apartment, buy a car, pay for electricity or internet, power their fancy gadgets or purchase food without it. Granted, many things people find "necessary" really aren't truly necessary to survive but in this era, most cannot survive without their technology.
It is hopeful that a person will, in the very least, seek a career that they enjoy while earning the necessary finances to meet all of their "needs". I think that would probably be what people seek ... a job they enjoy doing if they "have" to work.
Thank you for your viewpoint. It is a challenge to find work that is also enjoyable. As life would have it one has to do a number of jobs to learn what is most likely going to be the one you want above other possible choices. Thank you again for replying. Everything we can learn is helpful and gratefully appreciated. Charles Faber
It all depends on the person. Some people have to work so they can feel functional. Some people could sit in the hammock all day. My grandfather told me that it should never be about the money. If thats all it is you will never be happy. Find the one thing you can wake up and do everyday for free with a smile on your face. Thats the job for you.
What great advice, dreams2reality.
