I agree...its not too late. A lot of those people have degrees, there are jobs out there, yet corporations are holding those vacancies hostage (IMO) to continue to make Obama look bad with this high unemployment. It's a great start to an even greater end. What they need to do is become more innovative and actually attact the pockets of the source.
They need to think about taking all of their money out of banks. Why continue to patronize a bank that has been loaned YOUR MONEY in a bailout, but won't loan TO YOU. Then they take your money (bailout) and take lavish trips and vacations??? Look for credit unions to put your money in...ever notice that they haven't failed or required a bailout.
Cancel credit cards. Ever thought of who the credit card company banks with?? If you have a Visa/MC and they bank with Wells Fargo, BOA, JPM-Chase aren't they (Visa/MC) just extending you credit from your own money from the bailout with interest?? If you have a department store credit card and they bank with any of these, isn't your credit limit actually your own money, since our tax dollars bailed them out??
The government bailed these banks out with OUR MONEY and the banks turn around and take trips and stay at lavish resorts, and pay out million dollar severance packages...yet the needed our money??? The government could have bailed out "we the people"...we have debts too, and they're mostly owed to the banks that were bailed out.
Every U.S. president that has ever held office gets a pension...a pension that is passed on to their surviving spouse. But why are "we the people" paying for secret service, office staff/equipment, travel and mail for 10 years when they are no longer in office?? The presidential salary was raised from $200,000/annual to $400,000/annual by Bush...VP, cabinet members and congress don't have fixed salaries...their salary increases EVERY YEAR!!! Yet it took *** near 30 just to get minimum wage raised????
Repulsive republican't gov (a millionaire) of Michigan immediately kicks 40,000 people off of assistance when their unemployment rate is above the national average. Ok, so it's not for a lifestyle, it's for assistance and I agree there should be a cap on years. Yet, when it comes to the pension of the state representatives he's going to "review a reduction" in 2013??????
Georgia's repulsive republican't governor has allowed for state jobs to be outsourced to India...Georgia's unemployment rate is 10.2%...above the national average. Yet with all these unemployed people you would take jobs they could be working and give them to India. And the real kicker...they are customer service jobs answering calls for their food stamp program!!!! If he had employed people in Georgia who are getting food stamps he could have cut back on the amount they received in stamps.
Every state, federal and local department HAS CUT EVERYBODIES SALARY EXCEPT THEIR OWN...they would cut police, fire and EMT services (that again....we pay for) and not cut their own staff, or reduce the number of "perks" they receive for doing approximately 20/hrs per week work. Why should they still get city cars when the city is struggling. I LMAO at Detroit city council who decided that they wouldn't go on their scheduled break because they were afraid THEY WOULDN'T HAVE A JOB when they returned...not concern over the residents, not concern over bad city services, not concern over the housing crises...but concern for themselves.
Know the message before *** the messengers!!!
