The purpose of this thread is to remind ourselves that while layoffs are ongoing, wages falling, hours cut, tech help decreasing, store openings almost non-existent, hospital census crashing...

There is hope, a future and better days ahead.

Please add more as you see fit.

Not really sure how any of the pre-pharms, current students or new grads will have a better life.

My quote is: "SDN told you so."

Well, there is always people in worse situations than new grad pharmacists. McDonald’s workers living pay check to paycheck, bartenders, homeless veterans.
Right. Unemployed in your late 20s with no marketable job skills and $200k+ in debt? Such a first-world problem. Those spoiled Americans...

"America" and "prison" in the same sentence. Very apropros for Americans literally imprisoned due to colored drug possession vs white drug possession (as well as the economic underclass) except for the better life part. LMAO genius statement from #43

"Flatten the curve!"

(from exponential growth of desperate new grads with $200k+ in loans flooding the job market, accepting lower pay and worse conditions, and cutting corners on patient safety)

"May the odds be ever in your favor!" - greeting from older Rph to new grad.

"Game over, man! Game Over!" - spoken by a new grad, Walgreens or CVS RPh.

"Supersize or regular?" - new grad

Pre-pharms who signed up for this said they did it because it's their passion and to 'help people". They never mentioned money so they have nothing to worry about.

"don't plan for things that won't happen" - in reference to a decades-long career / same job for decades / becoming debt-free after 250k+ in loans / the future not being a dystopic hellhole

Sons of Pharmacy! My brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the courage of pharmacists fails, when we forsake our colleagues and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. Falling salaries, years of student loans to pay off, diminishing jobs, poor work conditions, and record numbers of new grads begging for jobs when the age of Pharmacy comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good profession, I bid you stand! Defenders of the Profession!
