    What's your point?
    That the job situation is better than it was five years ago. Which was the question I was asked.

    again, share with us how the government manufactured this scenario where it is smarter to avoid part time employment in order to realize greater income



    In the very near future, there are going to be two groups described as the 49'ers and the 29'ers.

    The 49'ers will be the company owners who will not hire that employee to put them over 50.

    The 29'ers will be the employees who cannot have a work week greater than 29 hours.

    These groups will not come into being until the Employer Mandates are enforced.

    Okay.

    Really though, any post war time you care to site was a better economy than 5 years ago.

At this point in my career I'd prefer to diagnose and run the business and let someone else swing the hammers. I learned most of what I know working in a small family shop in Warrenville Illinois for 7 years. That kind of training is hard to find these days. I have a good friend who is a machinist, he has an apprentice too. We really need to go back to this kind of education.


    My bother in law was a Boilermaker until he retired a couple years ago. Sadly his welds were straighter then than his short irons are now. Examples of his work around his house are almost like artwork.

    To your point, though, he defined for me the difference between trade union and labor union. The Boilermakers actually train and maintain a pool of expert tradesmen who are assigned to jobs that require very specialized and expert talent and additionally guarantee the quality of the work and supervise and certify the people in the union.

    It's a great system that provides an available and valuable workforce when needed.

    So it is your contention that the war in Iraq and in Afghanistan HELPED our economy?

    How long will this emergency response be required?

    We have an excellent welding program at our local high school. An old master who landed a couple of patents and really doesn't need the money teaches it. Not a bad skill to learn, it can be a good career or backup.

    I'm betting your bosses will find hiring a bunch of part-timers and trying to train them - and dealing with the turnover that comes with part-timers - will cost them a lot more than complying with the ACA would have done.

    yeah, your bosses are jerks.
