Bad jobs

...Workers don't take them.

Story # 105, O. T.

Bad Jobs,

           “The economy always creates bad jobs, but in a strong labor market, workers don’t take them.”

  Dean Baker, Center for Economic and Policy Research

        I could not pass up this quote by an economist that best describes the United States employment outlook.

      There are unemployed, underemployed and people who hate their jobs.

      There has never been a better time to create something on your own.  Seth Godin has been preaching this continuously to get you to do your ‘Art’ and be happy.

      But to create your own work or change jobs in uncertain times will be seen as foolhardy or reckless and require tremendous courage.

      Also, but --- it is foolish to spend a lifetime whining about your job and the lack of opportunity.  If you are willing to move, there is a job for everyone who wants one.

      Bad jobs --- When “workers don’t take them…”, wages go up.

      Is this a great country or what?
