wow...golly gee...do you think it might be time for them to uh...move to a different city?
maybe log on to monster.com and uh...maybe find a job in another town?
obama forbid they MAY have to move to find work...
freaking generation exxers...
Again, this is not what the data show. It is also not what I have seen. I know people who graduated from college with their BSN (and this was a low, low ranked college) this year and they had multiple job offers for outrageous amount of money. And this was without connections, and again, from low ranked schools.

Rockpuck, aren't we being masons supposed to all agree - how else can we accomplish our plot of world domination? YOUR NOT GOING WITH THE PROGRAM!
As you say, employment markets vary. Even in the "best of times" certain markets will be saturated for certain professions - I do not think the data show that this saturation is dependent upon prevailing market conditions for nursing jobs. Especially because medical jobs will grow independent of such conditions due to the fact that medical help is always needed. The demand is inelastic.
if the nursing demand was subject to prevailing economic conditions it is most likely to show up as statistically significant in a simple regression without any controlling variables. I used real and not nominal numbers, so inflation isn't a factor.
oom and gloomers have actually NOT been correct historically - if they were, we would have seen negative GDP for the last quarter of 2007
As I said, I do not doubt many ATS members are being truthful. Misery lovely company, and people love talking about how bad they have it - especially on a site that is enthralled with populist propaganda. But ATS is not a sample which is statistically generalizable to the population.
so you have to move away from the place where you grew up? too bad! you/your family needs to eat.
the point i am trying to get across to you is. SURVIVE.

On the minus side, the reversal in the unemployment rate was ultimately dependent on the fact that some 422,000 people were taken out of the labor force altogether (many were classified as discouraged workers who, having become jobless, and no longer looking for work--out of frustration with dwindling job vacancies--are not considered part of the labor force by government statisticians). As The Financial Times' Edward Luce noted, if these people had remained in the labor force, the unemployment rate would have hit 9.7%, which was about the level foreseen by many economists. In one of the most forbidding sentences I have read in the press for some time, Luce then attempted to describe the significance of this development: "However, the drop in labor force numbers in July mirrors a rise in the number of people looking for work earlier in the year, which then exaggerated the rise in unemployment, which leapt by more than 500,000 in each of the months between February and May." Ouch.
