    As of May, 5.4 million people were experiencing long-term unemployment*. If you were to ask any one of them to describe the job market, they probably wouldn't have many positive things to say.

    Yet a new CareerBuilder Talent Crunch survey found that 38 percent of employers currently have open positions for which they can't find qualified candidates.

    That's nearly two million jobs. This is why we need to invest in targeted education.

    We can't have education until we have a significant number of students willing to be educated. We don't have that today.

    We'd have jobs coming out the ying-yang if only greedy and selfish American workers would learn to accept reasonable wages.

    yea, you're right for once............I wonder who would hire Sanda Fluke, that is after she gets done with her degree in femanazism, maybe, some ambulance chasing law firm who specializes in bankrupting some evil corporate firm or small biz. for not having enough kotex dispensers in the ladies room.....:lol:

    That sounds like a Republican "talking point". The truth is, many of those who have lost jobs are more than willing to return to school for training. Also, the huge number of those with student loans also proves people still want an education. I don't even have to look that up. It's common sense.
