The jobs that are hirin are no good, pay nothin much and try to work people to death. There are no good jobs.
They did this in the 80's with high school kids, worked well, but the only took the hourly rate the job payed,and each paid 50% of that rate. You have to find the jobs where the person is compatible with the work,otherwise its a short term thing, Job has to produce permanent jobs,
Get the government out of business, and health care, and many other areas of our lives, and the economy will recover.
This is an age-old practice with skilled trades, union jobs, etc. You pay a kickback to the employer to get your foot in the door.IMHO, however, this plan for groups and individuals to subsidize companies to hire the unemployed won't make much of a dent until there is considerable job growth. The simple fact is that the vast majority of companies are not hiring because they do not need to hire. We have 5 million fewer jobs than in 2007 and about an equal number of new workers entering the workforce as are leaving thru retirement.
Hire the unemployed???? Isn't that what a job does. Where will the money come from for this program and how many goverment employees will it take to oversee this program????
Read the article - this does not involve the government at all.... it's an attempt to get non-profits and individuals to subsidize companies to hire the long-term unemployed. In other words, if a company will hire a person who has been out of work for a year or more, the NPO would ante up a portion of the person's wages for maybe 6 mos.My intuition tells me that as soon as that worker hit 6 mos or whatever time period the subsidy lasted, he'd be gone.... and they'd hire a new subsidized employee.BTW... have you heard that many companies and business actually list in their job openings that if you are currently unemployed you will not be considered for the position? Some states are in the process of passing legislation to prevent this sort of descrimination. However, that won't stop the problem.... they'll find other reasons. It's just much easier for a company to hire a currently employed person than one who has not worked for a few months.
I guess solyndra is about to reopen...
My ancestors help build this country before it was the United States now they let ganstas ruin the lives of the decsendants of the early settlers.
The way these companies abuse older workers is a crime. The government ought to arm the EEOC the way it arms animal control officers then you'll see real change with these ghetto managers.
Your ignorance is astounding. "Ghetto" manager. I hate to break the news to you, but most hiring managers and employment decision makers are not minorities. You sound like a fool.
"Paying Companies To HIre The Unemployed" Odd headline. Who are they going to hire, the ones already employed?
