Has anyone taken a retail or low paying job recently out of desperation/fear while job hunting? I see more and more Help Wanted signs in the Castro and up around SF, but I still have 4 good months of unemployment left.... I have really good office skills but the recruiters arent finding anything. If you did or even if you didn't , what city do you live in? If you didnt, why not? Thanks!

Proof that GOP is right about UE Plenty of jobs around but laying on your ass and collecting taxpayer dollars is so much easier. Isn't that exactly what the GOP is saying?

Pretty much what they are saying. Of course the Democrat worshipers on this forum will tell you it's 'just not true' and 'people are really hurting'. Nah, people are just lazy.

Let's try this again 1. Settling for a job outside your career field and below your education set is NEVER a good move. 2. Using all your unemployment is a good move unless you find a position in your career field. 3. The GOP would have us believe that any job is a good job, even if you are underutilized and demoralized because of it. Think of rocket scientists laid off in both Houston and Cocoa Beach as flipping burgers in McDonalds. Its not only a waste of intelligence and education, its down right depressing. 4. The Dems would have us believe that education is the solution since todays jobs seem to be on the lower rung with no upward movement or higher education required jobs. Though I agree education is always a good thing, the cost of going to college today make it next to impossible for the average joe to go without federal help (Pell grants and other state grants) AND WILL ONLY PAY FOR A BACHELORS DEGREE which is not 'higher education required jobs'. 5. The answer is the rich get richer while the poor get poorer and the middle class gets screwed to the point they will become a dying breed. Once we lose our middle class, the USA will die. Our current system runs off the back of the middle class.

So what happens when the unemployment ends and you don't have a job in your field? Any job is a good job when the alternative is unemployment. It is not next to impossible for the average joe to go to school without Federal help. Just not true.

When was the last time you went to college? Even in California where tuition is one of the lowest, more and more people in our county have had to drop out due to financial problems. No, a job is not good if you end up having health problems due to depression or other factors (which is what is happening to these rocket scientist flipping burgers). You can't repay student loans that way and they will NOT take no. Even my own mom, 65 years old, on SS has her check garnered by fed student loans.

    State schools are very reasonable in CA Simply working for a few years and saving money and then continuing to work during school will alleviate most of the cost. Anybody who allows a job to lead to depression has other problems.

    Again, when was the last time you attended college? Let me guess - NEVER! The lastest on financial aid in California? Not gonna happen this year. The budget won't allow it. They are gonna stick it to the poor and the middle class to make the numbers mesh.

    Tell that to all who have dropped out of both state and community colleges due to budget restraints. I work for a community college as a part-time instructor/professor. My class size has seen a drastic drop due to students who can't pay for classes with all the recent tuition increases.

    And maybe the poor should stop taking money in the form of food stamps and wellfare.

    Most states require welfare recipiants to work for their 'hand outs' as you it. I like to think of it as a hand OUT and a hand UP, not just a freebie. If they have worked in the past, their taxes paid is what they are drawing on. I know in Texas you must put in 20 hours a week either in free work in the EDD office or in classes to get your food stamps and check. Also, you can not draw on this forever like in the good ole days. Now if you have only a high school diploma, you can draw for 3-6 months depending on factors such as 'are you getting education', 'family needs (such as being pregnant or baby at home'. But then Healthy Families which is mainly fed money is trying to kick in and help the children for a longer time than the allowed welfare period. The sucking off welfare teet ended a few years ago with the requirement of working, education and not paying for babies any longer. At one time you could stay on welfare for ever as long has you kept spitting out a baby every two years. Not any longer.

    I'm entitled to what the bill of rights say and that includes the pursuit of happiness, no discrimination, and other such inaliable rights. BTW, how many people have you hired lately? If I have two people come in, one has worked in the field lately, the other took a job flipping burgers for a while, which do you think I am going to hire? Always remember - what you do for money will follow you the rest of your life.
