Ok, I'm going to open up another huge can of worms. Sorry for this. This is just the first forum I've found to discuss openly on this subject. I'm starting to think I'm the only vegetarian in the town I am currently living in, so...
I'm broke and need money. I need cash baad. However, the only jobs I am getting are food service jobs where innevitably sell meat. It makes me feel bad making money for violating my morals, but thats all anyone will pay me to do.
Also, I am broke and lost my shoes. I cant find any cheap vegan shoes (only crocs, but crocs dont work for job interviews).
I just quit my job at a gas station cause selling beef jerky made me feel like that lizard-metal villan guy from GI Joe. Now I'm looking at having to work at a restaraunt that serves burgers. Ahhh hellp I'm stuck in the meatrix of cow entrapment.
Oh also what about working at the one place in town that has decent vegan options (still serves lots of fish, dairy and some meat but also more vegan options by far than anywhere else)? I mean, if I sell three plates of vegan food a day, does it really make up for selling 20 of meat?
I hope that natural foods store is hiring [X(]
RE: Selling meat
good luck in finding the job which matches your values.
It is an ongoing journey to find the ways of livingour truth while living in this world
I would not recommend starvation though 😉
Maybe you could see working in this place as a short term option while better options show up
What would your ideal way of getting money be?
RE: Selling meat
My ideal way of getting money would be selling vegan food and/or anything involved with live music. Sadly, there are no veggie restaraunts around here... hell there are no veggie people anywhere in this place. Not much of a live music scene either.
Oh well, for now I'll accept the paychecks for slinging meat. You know, I used to sell pot and everyone I know gave me shit for being a criminal...
Hindsight 20/20 I would go back to being a criminal any time. I dont give a **** if the state thinks I'm a criminal. Right now, I think I'm a criminal. I should have stayed a criminal. I had much more cash then too...
