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?
