Gas price pains, hunger pains, debt collectors, medical problems, when will the process slow down so that partially unemployed can catch-up. I know the man told Bruce to get a job. It is easy when companies like you.

How is this hope and change working out for you? THERE'S AN ELECTION COMING UP...I HOPE YOU REMEMBER THIS LIST WHEN YOU VOTE!
Government jobs will not solve the unemployment problem....not in the USA nor anywhere else in the world. The Private sector has to do it. Get the government out of your lives, cut taxes on small companies, do away with this overblown retirement system for government workers...let them fund their own retirement. Get rid of all the government red tape for conducting business, cut taxes on business.
Get rid of all the un-necessary overburdening welfare programs.
Governments all over the world have gotten too big, they waste taxpayers money. Let the taxpayers keep their money and let them spend it as they see fit.
We can thank Obama for the situation here in America. And for sending billions of our hard earned tax dollars everywhere but to the Americans who need it. Vote for change in Nov.
We need it bad!
When I graduated from college in 1979, it took me months to land my first 'real' full-time professional job. It is always a very difficult time for a young person to pry open the doors and for them to find their directions in life. Don't under-estimate young people here or abroad. Many of them are more than willing to tend bar, wait on table, wash dishes, drive taxi cabs, work on assembly lines and work at the loading docks. Jobs are tough to come by, and there's are many people competing for the few that are out there. We're of a very resilent stock here! We'll weather this crisis irregardless of who is control of the White House.
The 16 to 25 year old age group normally has an unemployment a rate of 10 to 12.5 percent. At it's peak it was about 19 percent. That's a 72 percent increase. Compare this to the rest of us: normally being 3 to 6 percent unemployed and at the peak 7 to 10.5 percent gives a 95 percent increase. My numbers may be a tiny bit screwy cause I am just eyeballing the chart linked below, so the difference could be greater or smaller than I am saying. The point is, young people have it no different than the rest of us. Their unemployment rate to start with is simply twice what older people's unemployment rate is. It may even be significantly better with young people at a 72 percent increase vs. a 94 percent increase. The Bureau of Labor Statistics tells all: http://www.economagic.com/blslf.htm
