    Economy Adds 308,000 Jobs in March

    WASHINGTON — U.S. businesses created jobs at the fastest pace in nearly four years as hiring increased across a wide array of industries in March, the government said on Friday in a report that stunned financial markets and provided long-awaited evidence of a job market recovery.

    Unlike what the press normally hypes, an economy will always rebound with jobs uniformally across all sectors when it has been slumping and companies find they can do more profitable business again.

    A job is job - some people in this country think they are too good for certain jobs...which is why my ole Mexican friends have homes and most of you rent. They started out holding two or three of
    'would you like fries with that' jobs - One fellow I know became a 'big wig' in the export business and still held a second job...he finally sold his home and bought a nice place on the water in Florida....He said he owes it all to great America...there a jobs everywhere - you just have to be willing to start somewhere and work your tail off.

    At anyrate I don't know what sort of job someone like you might be searching for - maybe you are more like that fellow I know who sits at home and lives off his credit cards waiting for the one hundred thousand dollar a year job to stop by....

    Perhaps you are joking.

    Either way - a job is a job.

    Watch thine tongue, for you know not to whom you speak.

    Would you like to confess your trade or profession? I would be happy to provide a few details about myself if I knew it would not embarrass you.

    What got me this morning when i saw the article on yahoo was it said. that we added 300,000, unemployment goes up. and im like i heard the rate went up a point. how does that happen? And and i was just amazed at the bias of pointing to the rate going up rather than the job creation
