No not the jobs that offer those with no experience, skills or motivation $30.00/ hr and full benefits on day one! This is what the Walmart and McDonald's haters want! You can't build a resume on collecting government handouts. Take ANY job and parlay your experience into references!

So if these are not "quality" jobs - what exactly is your definition of quality jobs? Or maybe for someone like you - you expect to earn a six figure salary for just punching in ? I have to laugh at someone who thinks that a bank job or a retail job is not quality.

Wow if you are unemployed I can see why. You're really negative.
Course I have 30 years of experience and after I got laid off I started my own company, rarely leave the house anymore, work in shorts and tank tops and still pull down nearly 100 K (most of it not reported :) ) Sucks to be uneducated and unskilled huh?
