sick off the job

Hummh a case where Obamcare would actually help job seekers by removing the stress from worrying about, "what happens if i get sick?" Then again, i guess opponents would say, the unemployed don't matter much anyway right?

Amplify’d from
only are job seekers worried about finding a job, but job seekers also have to hope that they do not get sick or hurt themselves while being unemployed.

who's selling who?

Get with it...if you want a job today, you better know how to sell (yourself), regardless if the position is in sales or not. There's too much competition, for the few jobs that are out there, to not have a game plan.

Amplify’d from
A positive attitude has everything to do with sales and selling.

well look who is adding jobs

It's been a long time since Chrysler has actually hired workers. Maybe they finally got it together with the style and design to keep up with Ford and GM. At least the Dodge Charger is a sweet ride...

no lies jobs go overseas

So let's get this straight, insurers are mad that they can't lie to patients anymore and actually have to spend money on healthcare? So instead they want to send American jobs overseas. Great job guys...

how many people are still looking for work

It's hard to say. The data at best is conservative since people often just drop out of the crazy job hunt scene.

  • The share of working-age people who are actively participating in the labor force, either by working or looking for work. This share has been alarmingly low in recent months, indicating that many workers are sitting on the sidelines because they find the job market so discouraging.
