I've heard of so many people complaining about their inability for them to get a job. Some complain about the nature of their job(s). You will hear things like 'the pay is low', 'the pay and the work do not correlate', Some will even say 'I don't mind working just N30, 000 or N20, 000 or a friend even said that she doesn’t mind N10, 000', all she wants is a job.

Interestingly, as some are complaining, some are wishing they could work in a certain business or company because that payment is pretty much attractive - N50,000 - N100,000 per month. 

However, they fail to see that all their time has gone into that company and at the end of the month just to get the token that they've been promised as salary.
