    The federal mint. Didn't you collect state quarters? I suppose you can print it yourself but I wouldn't recommend it since that apparently is all illegal and stuff.....

    She has a high-paying job on Wall Street.
    She's trying to get a job in New York.
    The new factory will create thousands of jobs.
    They offered him the job but he turned it down.

    Construction of the bridge turned out to be a bigger job than they had expected.

    Somebody forgot to tell the dictionary people that only the Bureau of Labor Statistics decides what is or is not a job because they left them completely out of the definition.....

    The money comes from the private sector, hence, the government doesn't create anything.

    I'm sorry are you really suggesting that when counting jobs in an economy all those definitions in the dictionary entry are applicable? Like, nose jobs?

    From 1984 to 1994 military were included in total employed (from the current population survey) but all that did was raise the employment level and lower the UE rate on a consistant basis. Military are excluded because they're not part of the labor market...there's no freedom of entry/exit and numbers are not determined by market factors.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Then the government should hire 80 million employees and the problem would be solved.

    The same place the government comes from... so does the government actually exist then?

    Ok, so we have an Adult Civilian population of 244,350,000
    143,305,000 are working
    12,206,000 are looking for work
    82,089,000 don't want to work (mostly disabled, retirees, full time students, and stay home spouses)
    6,750,000 say they want to work but aren't currently looking...about half of whom haven't looked for a job in over a year (which makes their claim a little questionable) and of those who have looked in the last year, about 20% say they couldn't take a job if offered and about 47% quit looking for personal reasons, are now available, but haven't started looking yet.

    It's ridiculous to consider all those as "unemployed." You might as well start including 4 year olds.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Yes Sherlock, they do. But military jobs, unlike private sector jobs, are funded by tax payer contributions. So actually the military, as well as all government jobs, create budget deficit spending. Not that the Obama administration or Harry Reid has bothered with a budget. Just spend, spend, spend...

    So let's create jobs that slow the growth of the US economy; and that's what the Obama administration has done. (In addition to the billions in entitlement spending they dish out.)

    This is the result of "spreading the wealth." Take from the givers and give to the takers.
