The headline numbers look great right now, but compared with 18 years ago, "3.8 percent unemployment just ain't what it used to be."
    This, plus the one Trillion dollar deficit, is why there's no dancing in the streets over these numbers .. Just so glad I'm retired and out of the job market.

    The temp services are making a fortune here. $10 temp jobs in places that are not climate controlled.
    The companies wear out one crew with promises of a perm job, lay them off and the process starts over again.
    It is a shame.

    If there are so many available jobs, why are there young, homeless people multiplying in many places?
