California this year has gained back just 5.4% of the jobs it lost during the recession. Increased hiring in the temporary workforce and in industries such as retail and tourism have barely made a dent in a state hit by far larger job cuts in print media and telecommunications, according to the UCLA Anderson Forecast's third-quarter presentation this week. About 70,000 new jobs have been created in the most populous U.S. state through the first six months of the year, compared to the 1.3 million during the two years leading up to the end of 2009, the Anderson report said. About a sixth of this year's new jobs were in temporary staffing, with smaller gains in industries such as retail, education and logistics.


Of course there are jobs out there for everyone. Politicians and others keep insisting so. The 95% who haven't found anything yet are just lazy bums who won't take a job.

This is of course quite discouraging news for the unemployed. When the unemployment benefits run out, what are these people going to do?

There will come a time when money cannot buy itself enough protection, and the scales will tip. What amazes me is that why dont they create new jobs rather than make ppl live on welfare or unemployment benefits.

I wonder how many of that 95% are actually LOOKING for jobs, knowing that they qualify for TWO FULL YEARS on unemployment?
