Thread: A job!

  1. #1

    Default A job!

    I finally got a job in this hard economy. The bad part is this though... I will have to completely give up going to my cottage this summer, coincedentailly this is where my best friends are for their entire summer break. I will not see them once this summer. So, to add to my already bad social situation on the hoimefront, I will now most likely never see my summer friends ever again. So, what does this add up to be for me? Well money which is wonderful, but as a negative point it means I will have little to no social contact with teenagers and my very very few friends for 3 months

    Hey, even being a Laborer is a good find when the unemployment rate is nearly 10% now.

    Actually, the unemployment rate is worse than that. As a way of making the economy seem stronger after the dotcom crash and 9/11, the unemployment measurement was changed to only reflect people actively looking for work. After you didn't have a job for X months (12, I think), they assume you're no longer looking for work and therefore you're no longer among the ranks of the unemployed. So the actual number is much worse.

    Which makes his finding a job that much more awesome.

    And this is the key difference between how we measure "unemployment" and how the French do.

    I would really like to see a second figure - "under-employment" - introduced into the measurement pool. I'll bet that quite a few people who are "employed" are actually "under-employed," meaning that their pay/responsibilities/respect is well below their training.
