Certainly no one who's looking for a construction job unless they hit the lottery or had a rich dead uncle leave them money.

    Another reality is, company's who have the job openings are not going to hand hold office workers for the next 9 months while they learn their job.
    Again, sounds like excuses.

    You're speaking, I assume, out of ignorance. Go buy a house for 250K, have it lose it's value to 120K with an assessed value of 125K and tell me how willing you are to eat the difference, sell and move when you're paying $1,800 a month including taxes and insurance.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That makes no sense. You would further go into debt to work a job you could never repay your debt with?

    That's not an excuse alright but that isn't very bright either.

    Re: U.S. economy adds just 74,000 jobs in December

    For the last 5 or 6 months, I've given Obama the benefit of the doubt about our recovery and have refrained from voicing any criticism on the employment situation. Although it was going very slow, it appeared that we actually might be clawing our way out of the mess we've been in, and slowly but surely on our way back to the top... But after reading December's jobs report and realizing that the number of people who dropped out of the workforce and gave up looking for a job, out numbered the net jobs created by a 7 to 1 ratio, I'm beginning to feel like maybe I jumped the gun.

    Well... There's always next months report... I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    A government website. Of course what Obama says and the IRS and the BLS and HHS etc. is all absolutely true.

    Which, of course, isn't true.

    Pointing out that the job situation is better than it was 5 years ago is now "blaming Bush."

    What really makes sense, is to stay on unemployment insurance and not pay any bills. Yeah right. What makes sense is to get back to work and continue to look for a better job or look for moving up in the company you are working for.

    That's not an excuse alright but that isn't very bright either.
    Staying on unemployment insurance is really bright. Sit at home and do nothing including paying any bills with the amount you receive on unemployment.
