Census jobs provide short but welcome opportunity
WASHINGTON (AP) — As Census workers gear up to count us, they are counting themselves lucky to be employed.
This once-a-decade temporary work force is giving a timely boost to the battered job market. Census workers accounted for nearly a third of the jobs added in March, when hiring occurred at the fastest pace in three years.
Over the next two months, another 600,000 to 700,000 Census jobs will be added, putting $10 to $25 an hour into the pockets of some desperate job seekers.
No one is claiming that Obama isn't responsible for *some* of the '09 deficit. He just isn't responsible for *most* of it.
Let's also not forget that much of Obama's deficits isn't owing to increased spending, but rather to lower revenue as a result of the recession. That accounts for about $250 billion/yr.
So out of your 90 million figure, roughly 15 million have no job -- yet you count those among your complaint of those not paying federal income tax. The other 10 million are employed, but you count those twice; once in the group of workers who pay no FIT and then again in the group of underemployed who pay no FIT.
