    Default Plenty Of Jobs For Those With Skills

    http://economy.money.cnn.com/2012/07...economy-metro/

    Employment expected to increase 8.8% and Economy expected to increase by 7.5%!

    One thing I can say about UL, they do an excellent job of getting their grads ready for the workforce!
    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
    C S Lewis

    That is the story everywhere...there are jobs if you are skilled, but lets not forget we are now the country of cell phones and video games. Therefore if texting is part of the job requirement, there is a big list of sutible employees, but if welding a weld that will stand the test of an xray...need to look south of the border

    That's a pretty offensive comment to your brethren in the Teachers Unions!!!!

    Are you insinuating our children are not leaving school as educated as an illegal immigrant??
    DA UNION ain't gonna like this..........

    What I find more than a little peculiar is that while some seem to have little difficulty securing and holding down multiple jobs, others can't seem to find and hang on to one.

    somewhere along the line the American public has been led to believe that an education was a GUARANTEE to a high paying wage, college grads today are unwilling to put the time in to entry level positions, thinking that they can immediately walk into six figure junior partner positions, armed with a degree but with little actual work experience or common sense...it also doesnt help that we (as a society) pay actors, athletes and politicians a kings ransom when they perform nothing more than entertainment

    Look at poor Mariah Carey she's only getting a mere 18 million a year for sitting her rear end in a chair judging American idol.

    If you don't like the salaries paid to entertainers, don't watch them. The same with televised sports. Ratings = revenues = salaries. As for politicians they are stars already. As someone noted here a while back, "I don't think a commoner should be candidate for President."
