WHERE ARE THE PROMISED JOBS MR. PRESIDENT ?
The stimulus bill ($767 billion ) was passed even though many of our elected officials didn't read the bill.The president promised that unemployment would not exceed 8% and that ready shovel jobs would get started. Now 12 months later, unemployment is at 10% nationally with only 30%of the money spent.Our president wants to start a second stimulus plan.In many parts of the country unemployment is 18%+, the news media is not reporting the serious problems facing many of our citizens.It's time to make our elected officials be accountable for their in-actions.
All job growth this year has been in government. The latest unemployment data showed a significant rise in temporary workers and services, retail. This is the holiday season and many stores will do half their business from November through the end of the year. There will be a resumption of higher unemployment after the first of the year after the retailers have layed off temporary workers, they of course do not count in the numbers of unemployed. There are no new jobs, and with an increase to payroll taxes that is assured to continue into 2010.
I believe 2010 is the year the economy turns for the better. Jobs are the economy for most of us. In my area construction is picking up and that is a very good sign.
Don't know where the jobs are...we just laid off 3 employees from our unit due to loss of funding. In addition, more cuts were made at the state level for us, which filters back to the government supplement. I'm talking about the mental health field. CUTS. As well as no psych beds available, waiting list is a week or more. We got cut, how about you? Thought things were supposed to be better for free health care, or does mental health not count?
Dispose of your belts.. they can't be tightened further. Looks like 2010 will be the year for suspenders.. but then, it could be seen coming, and LONG before we even knew who'd run for president last year.
The signal for Closer of industry and loss of job can not be good indicator for a better prospect for any country. In a Democratic country elected officials will be accountable – it is already there. People can change anything and everything by a democratic movement provided the elected officials remain inactive. But the elected officials are in action, of course, with without any fruitful results. It may be an unprofitable policy matter. But in 2010 there appears to be a little economic progress. It is hoped a further improvement in economy will be seen very soon. In addition after the loss of Massachusetts seat the Govt is in constant review of the policy matter. It is hoped that a better day will prevail for every body very soon. Out of 4 years it is only one yr is passed off. To remove the economic mess of the previous governance surely it will take time. American economy is not a local affairs, it concerns with the world economy. Thanks for sharing.
There are no Jobs. The News is lying about them just as they were lying about the service jobs that were supposed to be coming in when our factory jobs were being sent overseas.
All real statistics show job losses. This website has occassional updates on it www.outlivesheep.com
The stimulus was a failure and even if it would have succeeded it would have only been for a short time since that is another bubble (I called it the Job Bubble) since there is no natural growth in the economy (meaning the money is unnatural) when the stimulus ended and the money dried up the jobs would have went away. The same thing happened with houses and the various other bubbles throughout history.
Find out where the American jobs related to sustainable and renewable energy resources, petroleum and natural gas, and other forms of energy are likely to increase in the 2010s and 2020s. read more
As of May 2011, the unemployment rate is 8.7%. It's not perfect, but it's gotten closer to his goal.
