More Job Seekers Than Jobs In USA

By GARY BAUMGARTEN

If you're out of work and frustrated that you just can't find a job, you're not alone.

The number of people seeking jobs outpaces the number of available jobs in record numbers.

President Obama eluded to this when he said that, while the economy is showing improvement, the number of people unemployed would likely grow before the job market gets better. Funny how they say the economy is improving, the stock market is rebounding, yet people who have been thrust onto the unemployment line still can't find jobs. What's up with that?

The other day I interviewed Sue Kelly who runs the food bank for Monmouth and Ocean Counties in New Jersey. During the show she told the story of a welder who has always provided for his family but who was injured on the job and lost his leg and can no longer work. This proud, fine man, is now availing himself of services at the food bank.

What she didn't relate on the air was the story of a Wall Street couple who purchased their dream home on a river and were the envy of all their friends and relatives. Then the bottom fell out - they found themselves out of work - and now - despite living in their luxury home in a decidedly upscale neighborhood are visiting the food bank in order to eat.

I'm glad the economy is rebounding and there's, supposedly, a light at the end of the tunnel. But where are the jobs?

How can there be a recovery without jobs? All this talk of the recession is over is just gibberish. It may be over for Wall street but not main street.Figures don't lie but liars can figure.

You want to know where the Jobs went? They are in China, India and Mexico to start with. American employers do not want to pay american wages, not while our suicidal trade laws Nafta Cafta and the WTO allow employers to send all jobs (they are now sending engineering jobs to China). IF YOU WANT JOBS BACK IN THE USA REVOKE AND REPEAL OUR SUICIDAL TRADE LAWS OTHERWISE YOU WILL DIE ON THE STREET HOMELESS!!!
