Get A Job
Be here now. Go there later. AP (07.13.10), via Eschaton:
Job openings dropped in May from the previous month and layoffs edged up, fresh evidence that employers are reluctant to add workers." "Job openings drop in May as hiring stays weak"The department's report, known as the Job Openings and Labor Turnover survey, illustrates how competitive the job market is. There were about 4.7 unemployed people, on average, for each job opening in May." Ya wonder if this has anything to do with the number of unemployed folks out there? Ya think? Naw, they're just lazy, shiftless ingrates, is all. Then again, maybe it's those chickenshit bankers: "One reason hiring is weak is that small businesses, which create about 60 percent of new jobs, are having trouble getting the credit they need to expand and hire more workers." UPDATE: Another one of them pesky graphs. This fact-based stuff is getting rather tedious, eh? UPDATED UPDATE: You can only get just so compassionate.
