I see a trend, especially in young people, to use the pioneer service as an excuse not to seek, productive, full-time work. It is pitiful how this religion feeds into the inherent laziness of some people and gives them a 'righteous' reason to not do anything with their lives
I know many young witnesses who are not lazy, but are lost or stuck. You are told not to go to college; add to that any job that takes you away from meetings, that might preclude even entry level type jobs at restaurants.
I feel sorry for the rank and file teenagers. They cannot win no matter what they do.
