“The quality of the worklife available for the average citizen is the lowest it has been. The schools have become a meanless place to learn and transend to a higher paying skilled job. Rather than train people whoses families are here they displace them with imported workers. No wonder people or forced to leave the states where they have to raise taxes to replace revenue loss from declining incomes.”

“You mean like the technology that forced our factories to the third world while bringing in visa workers who displaced people already skilled in technology?

They must be saving our college grads for the military draft because something just doesn't make sense.”

“It's more complicated than that. Unions helped move those jobs out of the country by protecting people who just don't want to work. I personally knew of many union workers who got off of work for 6 months paid because they could get a doctor to send a note saying they needed time off. America has never taken responsibility for these woes. Yes, the corporations are complicit, but people are no angels themselves and will lie and steal to get over. I say the whole thing is corrupt.”

“Yes, my son shows a knack for technology but why should he go to college for that field while he watches my husband, an IT Security Analyst, struggle to gain permanent employment. You hit the nail on the head regarding the HB3 visas. It doesn't make sense to import workers while paying unemployed American tech workers unemployment. Even when their benefits run out, they could still be employed and paying taxes. What is the end game here?”

“We have an over capacity of retail stores vs need. We have a economy where they import supposed skilled workers on visas. I haven't never seen a workforce so deprived of fair wages , overtime at 1 1/2, benefits and worker protection. You had a chance at the American dream before the trade deals now you got spin!”

“There were over 146 million people working five years ago on average for the whole year. When 2013 is averaged out it will below 144 million working people. Most of these five years the workers have been dumped in the not in the workforce column and many that are working now are lower wage, less, benefits, and scheduled for less than 40 hrs. Over time/ 40+ hours and full benefit jobs are less than they ever were. Costs are rising while eating savings and pension plans. Retail has become the new sweat shop jobs while using less workers. People have never worked so hard for less since the Medieval ages.”

“Gee why are they pushing for an extention of benefits if this is the largest increase of jobs since the 1930's. You know why because they know it is not true and eventually liars are found out. The BLS can't tell how many bean counters lied on the forms and they would not tell CNBC. Seems some counters did not actually count any thing which distorted the counts.”

“The big box store W didn't hired many people in NJ until the unemployment rate was under 4.5 percent in 2004. Just a few years later in 2007 the economy headed back down. For most of the 2004- 2007 period there was no Over Time and hours were being cut so the sudden holiday cannot last long as we enter 2014 in a state of low wage and over capacity retail jobs.”

“The big box stores predicted a slow recovery ahead. Somebody tell me where the job boom is coming from because retail does drive retail hiring that is done by the other hiring from other sectors like construction and manufacturing. Recent reports about a slower service sector than projected couldn't of been just made up.”

“It's not happening in NJ. NJ lost a chunk of it's Pharmasautical Industry. Our State is above the national rate of unemployment consistently. People are being warehoused in apartments, basements, and in single family homes. Oct our unemployment rate was 8.4%. We haven't seen any range in the range of 7% since the before this downturn started.”

“Here in NJ the unemployment rate seasonally unjusted was 8.4% in October. The national "not in the labor force" is over 91 million and the unemployed 10.9 million so the expected Christmas hiring of under 700,000 seems to be the factor driving the temporary hoopla.”

“Actually, no. PETA does not own or operate any shelters or care for any pets. The pets that they do take in, they kill. They are not a rescue organization. They feel that we should all become vegetarians and not own any pets. It's been well documentated!”
