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?

San Quentin State Prison (calif.) is almost always hiring prison guards. Lots of advancement opportunities after two years. Starting academy pay is around $13.00 an hour . . . then around $17.00 an hour. Top step pay is around $30.00 an hour. All kinds of benifits and time off, it is a somewhat stressful job. Job requirements: decent, but not perfect health; no felony convictions; high school gradute; any age, even into 70's is okay.

Not one! yes I mean none of the jobs are Manufacturing positions. They are all service oriented. We cannot sustain the us economy with this type of job. These only add to the negative side of the balance. If we do not turn manufacturing around soon there will be no one to buy the services.

Where once older associates became bosses and leaders they now become targets of abuse, discrimination, and disrespect. The answer for the loss of manufacturing by politicians seeking revenue is to approve multiple Retail projects and allow corporations to import several thousand visa workers to pump up the lagging jobs number. Out of the employed in NJ probably 100,000 people in the employed category are here on visas displacing Americans.

Payroll is the same for 10 or 1,000,000 people. With a company like UPS everything is automated - no biggie. I do payroll for some of my clients in my accounting firm but most of the time I tell them to get a third party place, easier and cheaper

Why does AT&T need employees, you can never get one on the phone, all you get is a stupid robot that you have to try and make understand what your problem is. Called the other day to CS said to Robot I need technicians, went thru a whole lot of worthless questions none that I could relate too, then it said, one momemt while I transfer you to an oporator, well I ended up back with the same robot at CS that I started with. So unless they are hiring robots, I don't know who else they need.
