I guess we can safely conclude this article is applicable only to so-called first world. In Asian countries the situation is almost always desperate, population size and competition is SO TOUGH that candidates just don't get to have a "say" in things.

Plus, in many Asian countries culture plays a role, a "boss" is like a god most of the times, he bestows his "blessings" of "granting" you a job.

Yes, as you can imagine, I've been to both sides of isle in both places, so I can pretty much tell this article is good natured, just not for everyone, which Jean already mentioned.

Regards.

It was the same in the so called first world not long ago

The only way things change is when a small group of motivated people start to organize, mobilize, unionize.

Yeah that comes later, before that, economic situation needs to be at par with the Western civilisation, which it isn't at the moment, so poverty plays a huge role there, much bigger than here.
