With all the distractions coming from all directions, it seems the jobless claims numbers are still high.

this week around 410,000 new ones.

last week around 451,000.

40 States got increases !!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistic, for the second week in a row, over 400,000 new jobless claims were filed across the country. Last week the number was 451k, this week it's 410k, and as we saw last week, most of the blame is falling on Hurricane Sandy.

Jobless Claims Over 400k For Second Week

Where's all the "holiday hiring" ?

The story points out some questionable things about Hurricane Sandy.

Things are just so awesome!

Makes me think that there is government and union collusion with all the "protests" going on with Walmart, and Air travel.

Distractions from 400k people out of work, the Hostess Fiasco this country is going down.

"holiday hiring"?

how about holiday shipping.
it's non-existent this year.

last year was great, this year nothing.

a company i'am trying to work for told me today
they are not hiring anyone until after the first of the year because of obamacare.
even though they are short handed.
