    I don't understand how ANYONE can be unemployed in America.
    I am not interested in any of these as I own my own business but if I wanted a job every day since 1/1/2010 I received email notifications about jobs in my area of Florida. Hertz, Crab Shack, Manorcare, Dunkin Donuts, Kohl's,Outback, AMC theatres,Enterprise, Dollar, CarMaxTruBlue, Aerotek...
    Just to name a few of the 840 distinct emails with job offers!

    840 jobs all for one person!

    In addition in Washington State apple pickers are desperately needed and they pay $150/day almost $50,000 a year.. and these jobs are available right now!

    The problem is NOT available JOBS..
    It's people that want to work!

    This is hilarious.

    You think my father would actively chose to give up a 110k job for just around 20k a year in unemployment benefits?


    No, you're a liar.

    Naaaaaaaaaaaaahh...I think he would be good at pumping a septic tank...that is if somebody else drove the truck

    I know he believes the 45,000,000 who are on food stamps are really enjoying life. Most of the people who eat the food purchased with food stamps are children.The 50,000,000 with no health insurance are having a ball too...at least the ones who aren't sick yet.

    For someone who owns his/her own business, you are incredibly stupid. First of all, just because you receive notifications about jobs doesn't mean they actually exist. Some of it is most likely lead in advertising just looking for a response from desperate job seekers. As for any legitimate positions, I'm willing to bet they receive hundreds of applications for each position, so just because you see a job is available doesn't mean that everyone unemployed is going to get it.

    But what I really want to address is your statement that apple pickers in Washington are paid close to $50,000 per year. Actually, they only make around $8000 per year.

    Farm Jobs

    These people are lucky to make minimum wage, housing is not always provided, and the work is seasonal.

    You should fit in well here with your tales from fantasy land. It seems to be an ongoing theme in these parts.

    yeah that is the way to win converts to the republican party.

    tell the Americans voters who cant find jobs that they are lazy POS who should be ashamed.

    Jesus the right has no idea just how callous they are.

    What about the hundreds of jobs I see advertised daily in our local paper?

    We are small to medium county so I have to assume across the whole state of Florida there are thousands upon thousands of jobs advertised every day.

    If people were so desperate for work I would think these employers woudn't have to spend the money to advertise.
