People who lose their jobs want to start making the same they were, and people hiring aren't paying. Browsing job boards and so forth there is a lot
of jobs, but they require a specialized job and skill set most Americans don't have, and can't afford to get. Seriously, why would a maintenance
person in an industrial facility(basic maintenance, stuff my 2nd grade educated grandfather performed) require a masters in mechanical engineering,
and 6 different certifications.
Employers know its an employers market, they can pick and choose, and pay crap for the position. General labor jobs, stuff that is needed for
infrastructure repair pays barely over minimum wage, with no benefits.
Its a sad state that our country is in, and no matter who is in office, or in congress or whatever, I am not sure it can be fixed.
