I stood in a line like that back in the 1980's when my friendly neighborhood "Northern Telecom" made a similar announcement!

Boy, I'm glad THAT didn't work out...

Are you sure that's not the lineup for KFC?

Spicy BIG CRUNCH sandwich is so delicious.

Sure, blame the unions. Isn't that how it ALWAYS goes?


I'm sure some of you would work for slave wages if you were asked. You're so victimized that an union job is now a BAD thing to you.

I don't know about you but if I were unemployed, I'd take ANY job that came down the pipeline, union or not.

What a bunch of brainwashed peons. When you listen to the MSM and the anti-union B.S long enough, it shows in your posts.

Did you people not score well on that "context clues" reading text in the second grade? Or is this a stock script?

This is the same response that I see over and over again to any article detailing how T.P.T.B are manipulating the system , and how this is a sad state of affairs.


Obviously these people are attempting to feed their families. The problem is that "good" jobs are too far and in between that an announcement warrants blocks long lines to even apply.

Ok , yes, agreed. You do what you can to survive. No one disagrees with that.

If someone knocks you down you "pick yourself up by the boot straps" and keep pushing on.

But at no point do you ask yourselves:

Who keeps knocking me down?
and
How do I keep ending up on the floor?

There is nothing courageous or admirable about constantly taking a butt whipping to show that "you can take it".


Ok lets come to the real world, people have to work or create work to sustain themselves, period. We can talk about the horrors of the powers that be all day but like it or not bills must be paid if people want to keep their lights on, buy food, clothing, and or shelter. Yes cliches are used often, those same cliches have elements of truth to them. How do you propose people fight the powers that be, don't work? Who do they hurt by not working? Just curious how do you sustain yourself?

Well all those people who work for a salary they can not live on, while the company they work for posts profits that rival the GDP of a small nation, could organize themselves to negotiate that a portion of profits be payed out as a bonus each quarter to the workforce. Of course it wouldnt be sufficient that workers at one company organize themselves, everybody in that specific wage bracket would have to excert pressure at the same time.

Real world? Dude, it's ATS. This site is filled with fatalists that just like to complain and be miserable, don't be talking that trash about taking action 'round here, haha. You're just supposed to whine and moan about your lot in life, not actually take actions to improve your circumstances, duh, sheeple!

I've been reading the posts on this thread and I'm just not getting what's so bad about people wanting to work?

Exactly, it's a damn if you do damn if you don't situation. Well I applaud those people for enduring that freezing weather trying to get an application to go to work. I just don't get what's bad on their part about wanting to work? A couple of weeks ago politicians created the illusion people in this country were lazy hands out bums who didn't want to work, now this negative feedback.

I don't know what the other peoples' problems are but I took this as a real manifestation of the Obama WH's economic failure replete with all them smart Wall Street folk who have no incentive to fix it

Wage slaves lining up voluntarily at the feet of their Masters of the Universe.
Sad, sad, sad.

May I suggest - they can always migrate to China - all the jobs are there.

Gingrich's fat-arse wouldn't last ten minutes working hard labor that most men have worked. Can you imagine some of these bloated, lazy, cream-puff politicians actually doing some real work.

This is truly a marker for how under reported unemployment is. They say 8.5 percent but I have to say, talking with people on the streets, its closer to 30 percent. atleast where i live

What is really sad is a good portion of you can't get over the party rhetoric - Bush this, Obama this and Clinton that.

They are answering to the same puppet masters, and those masters want America broken and needy. The sad thing is big money buys politicians to make laws that allow them to rape the world.

Clearly, the answer to fix the unemployment problem is to insource more illegal aliens from Mexico. If we can bring more and more, then Ford and others won't have anyone but drug cartel to hire in Mexico, and they'll have to move the manufacturing in Mexico back to the U.S. Granted, we'll all have chickens and goats in our front yards with dirt streets and crippled kids selling chicklets, but hey, it's worth it!

Very sad indeed, where are the jobs. America is in a depression and the MSM and financial networks don't dare say it. When you have people in line for jobs that they only wanted a handful and when you hear about a janitor position being open at a highschool 2 years ago and them getting swamped by over 900 resumes you know it's bad.

This is exactly what is going on in Australia right now. I told everybody here before that in 2009 the United States of America was in a depression and not a recession. Your great wonder messiah leader, the almighty Barrak Hussein Obama has turned America into a brand new secular European-style bureaucratic socialist system. Australians need a very good dose of what you have there in the states. There must have been over 2000 people in that line. We are a Democratic socialist republic. Do not confuse Australia with Europe. So I am waiting to see the boo-hoo come right here as today Toyota laid off a tiny 250 workers in Altona Victoria. The labour unions are going to bust Qantas airlines. And the demand for good quality jobs in AU is going down down down.

Under Margaret Thatcher,s term the trash collectors union wanted a 35% PAY INCREASE!!!! 35 percent!!! Enough is enough!!! My poor American brothers and sisters scrapping together all that they can to even live in multiple family units. But Aussie,s you had better start to suck it up. Star whingeng right now because this economy is coming right back to you. And do not look to New Zealand either.

Your commentary unnerves me. Obviously you haven't been around and traveled. Since the OP was pertaining to Chicago, let me address Chicago. You are not going to get a grocery store job unless you speak fluent spanish and have a spanish sounding name, and are willing to work for nothing. Long hours, little pay. Most of the people that work in Pete's Produce, Pete's Market, Jewel, or any of the chain stores are Mexican and they are getting paid under the table because they work for nothing, and demand nothing. Gas stations here are all about Arab heaven. You are not going to find any Americans working hardly in any gas station within the city borders. None.
Why the hell should people take a gig making half of what they use to when the average cost of basic living in Chicago is 95K a year? So somebody going from 50K to 25K isn't even making enough for the commute back and forth to work, let alone rent, utilities, and ramen noodles. Lord forbid they are a woman and need feminine hygiene products like Tampax.

In case you didn't know, Chicago has the highest tax in the country, and people here are taxed for food, produce, products with dairy, sugar, salt, water, soda, liquor, and tobacco. A pack of cigarettes not on sale is about 17-20 bucks a pack depending on where in the city you are. Cases of water and other beverages are taxed individually and then as a unit. There is no such thing as take a job any job because some jobs are not worth getting into debt over in a city that has 90% unemployment and where crime is rampant.

People here can barely travel to work let alone another state. Don't even get me started on Daley/Emmanuel combo of selling off parking meters to a private firm that have now raised the meter 1.25 an hour and charge 24/7. As well as city works, the skyway, the airport, the skyscrapers, the waterways by Lake Michigan, and anything else for their private coffer. Now that education has been privatized into the charter clusterbuck, the next step so says Rahm is privatizing all city services, including the police, fire department, and city jobs like garbagemen, etc. Last police opening, the pay went from 58K a year to 22K with minimum benefits. Can't wait till the po-po get mad for working for minimum wage because its gonna eventually happen here.

It gets me mad people like you are blaming folks who want something better and trying to be legit about it should be demonized.
