The men and women that died for this country in WWII are crying somewhere.

    The jobs are temp to hire, with good benefits if you can actually work.
    apparently, there is a problem with your temp service. your HR department should contact your state's unemployment services, and the positions should be listed on careerbuilder.

    these jobs are desperately needed, and should not go unfilled.

    Doesn't China have a zero tolerance drug policy with dealers facing penalties including capital punishment and don't they make drug abusers and addicts must undergo rehabilitation at police-run facilities or labor camps?
    The question is more important than the answer!

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    It is shows a great deal of disrespect to lump the economic policies of China and Japan in the same context....
