So the baby boomers are retiring? So what? They dont make enough money after retirement to survive so many if not most of them go right back to work. They take all the lower income jobs left out there, the jobs once monopolized by students and the like. I know because where I used to work 8 out of 10 of us were retired and getting pensions. While I was trying to survive they were living high off the hog collecting SSI and pensions! So, while their industrial jobs are opened up they do not leave the job market and thus are not leaving open positions for those of us who are not retired. Its a damn jokebut you cant blame them with ridiculous costs of medical coverage, bills and the skyrocketing costs of food.
Then you get reports that the unemployment rate is falling! No. People are running out of unemployement money and thus no longer being monitored by the mighty ineffectual system. Thus they are no longer a part of the "Official" equation. Then you have those who find seasonal jobs like working for home depot, Lowes or a landscaping company. This is not permanent employment but the suits pretend it means something. It does not. These people will be back on unemployment in six months and back to the drawing board they go. Somebody needs to get the thumb out of their ass, stop filibustering and start doing what they are paid (and given pensions for the rest of their lives) to do!
