    What does everything think about whats going on with the job market?? Everyone I know is either out of work, or their workplace is trimming people. I understand there are down turns and everything, but zero has got better, its only gotten worse.
    Just interested to know where everyone thinks, the current job market is going, Is there anyone that see major growth? or ? Thanks for any answers
    Here is a great site for everyone to keep up on dailyjobcuts . com

    I'm praying to get laid off, get a year's salary if it happens. don't think it's in the cards.
    I don't know anyone unemployed, most I know are rich though.

    Ten percent unemployment will be the new norm.


    It's hard to compete with workers who make $.10 an hour with no benefits.

    bullshit, everybody always thinks it's different this time. The US economy will bounce back. Either in spite of Obama or after he get's Carterized.

    I have to agree. Our economy is nothing if not amazingly resiliant. It will come back. Despite the Governments best efforts to hamper it.

    That sounds very promising... hahaa. I just don't know, I never seen it this bad before. Everyone is on the end, places closing up, just insane. I got to laugh at people at work, they keep saying oh things are turning around. I'm like really we now are on furlough Fridays, Pay freeze, 401k match now eliminated. Just hard to look past what i see
