    Labor Secretary: 'There are jobs out there'

    Pay no attention to that rising unemployment rate!

    Labor Secretary: 'There are jobs out there' - USATODAY.com

    It's up to you

    I am not an economist. I believe that numbers only tell you part of the story. I deal with real people, and I know that the only true replacement for a job lost, is a new job that pays good wages. I'm committed to making that a reality for anyone who wants a job.

    That's why I'm so excited to announce www.myskillsmyfuture.org— a new online tool to connect workers with high quality training and local employment.

    By visiting the site and adding information about your most recent work experience, you can see exactly what skills you need to qualify for a broad range of careers. You can also find local training and education providers and, yes — you can see local job postings.

    In other words, what's next ... is up to you.

    There are jobs out there.
    And, this Labor Day — and every day — I'm going to continue helping people find them and employers fill them. If you're ready to embrace a 21st century career, I want you to know your Department of Labor is here to help you. And, if you're an employer looking to fill positions, we've got a list of great candidates for you.

    Re: Labor Secretary: 'There are jobs out there'

    It is so very sad to read something like this. They seem to feel the answer to creating more jobs is to start a website. This is the best the government can come up with.

    And there is still over two more years remaining of this feebleness.

    I don't care how many Americans voted for BHO, they are instinctively too good a people to deserve this.

    "The big question: Are things getting better? To answer that, we need to look back more than a year ago, when the economy was losing a staggering 800,000 jobs a month. Our actions, most notably the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, stopped those losses."

    Here's the group of people that should get on the internet and check this out; if their internet access wasn't turned off.

    Eventually, you don't have any more jobs to lose.

    That's like punching a hole in the side of a milk carton, then celebrating the fact that it stopped leaking eventually.

    First we have Muareen Dowd telling us that we're too stupid to understand just how brilliant Obama really is. Now we have this ole girl telling us that we're too lazy to get out and find a job.

    Where do you get your statistics, Pbrauer, because every time I read this type of stat it grows by another 50,000.

    Here are other stats which show that the job losses weren't near that high.

    Did you do any real research rather than just repeating what was said in some left wing web site? Where is your link?

    Re: Labor Secretary: 'There are jobs out there'

    I just got hired along with another guy for a new job, and it's looking like we'll need a third. Are you guys suggesting that there are no jobs at all or are you just deliberately misinterpreting his statement so you have something to attack?
