    AMR Background Check

    You don’t know what the average 18 year old mind is like at that age you said so yourself. So how come you didn’t go off to come fancy university, being of above average intelligence?

    Are you dense? Of course they had my permission, I signed. I walked on because it wasn’t sold to me as a battlefield, This wasn’t signing up for the army, this was signing some papers and getting a frisbee, remember 18yo you was way different than normal 18yos and you're right it’s not their...

    Oh absolutely let people make their own choices and deal with them, BUT there used to be classes in high school dedicated to learning real life **** because not everyone ended up going to college. How to balance a check book, information about credit, he’ll back in the 50’s women learned how to...

    What do you mean. For this debate, Discover signed me up for $3500 limit card, super high interest but I knew nothing about interest and nothing about the penalties of not paying.

    Exactly, it’s on the uneducated. And back before the housing bubble burst, credit was so cheap it was being given out like candy. $3000 limit credit cards for 18 year olds with no history or co signer. Tell me you honestly think that’s a good a idea. I ask again, how do you think the people you...

    Huh? You mentioned you’re 22. Your generation is already graduating to the worst student debt problem and you want to add hurdles? I get that you’re gifted and can research. I graduated highs school a year early by taking the chspe, then got my ged almost like a double high school diploplma...

    Lol because if they don’t know what theyr’re doing when they go apply to emt school they’re not going to be allowed in. In a sense, setting them back a few years while they hopefully learn about and fix their credit.

    I’m saying that it was wildly irresponsible to give these kids credit cards. That the blemishes it may or may not have left on their record should not hurt them 4-5 years later when job searching. And that high schools should do at least a semester of credit / keeping a household.

    AMR Background Check

    I agree with a good a debate but there’s certain things one can just assume if they are confused. Do you really believe everyone you graduated high school with would do great given a credit card and no counseling?

    Exactly that’s what one should do, but most 18 year olds are thinking about those new pair of shoes they’re gonna go get

    AMR Background Check

    You like arguing huh? I guess i have to be really specific with you. They were allowing 18 year olds to sign up for credit cards without any prior knowledge on credit.

    That’s awesome dude, but you are the exception, not the rule. And yes they were signing people up right there and giving out frisbees if your were approved. This was pre 2008 though, so maybe why you don’t relate. Money was cheap

    I think its a bit of a reach to put a a 20 year old kid who was given a credit card and went willy nilly to how they will perform in a job they will be highly trained for. At least for my generation, credit was never talked about in high school, then the first day of school at college there were...

    How has being in EMS changed you?

    Which is why I’m saying if you can get that initial number next to the dotted line any higher from the start, its an advantage, period. Be it 25 cents or a dollar. What I meant by doing your research is knowing that an emt basic is not going to make as much as a starting Paramedic so asking...

    Continuing education between an EMT and Paramedic.

    Don’t more paramedic program require work experience as an emt as part of their pre-reqs?

    How has being in EMS changed you?

    I haven’t done research at all but $11 sounds awfully low for Dfw area. Check indeed.com glass ceiling.

    I see two things at play here. I want to say this in the nicest way possible but someone with a sense of entitlement. That they have completed the required coursework to become an emt and got hired should come with respect of your peers. In any job you’re lucky if you get common courtesy until...
