I was just looking up some stuff on OV keyword suggestion. One of the words happened to be job.

All I have to say is screw any federal report. I just have to look at the keyword traffic under the word job. This is just for the states that popped up (month of Oct),

#1 - California jobs 80802
#2 - Kentucky jobs 42923
#3 - Florida job 24308
#4 - Texas job 18867 (houston job 19204)
#5 - Ohio job 17740
#6 - Michigan job 15539
#7 - Wisconsin job 15507
#8 - Iowa job 14910
#9 - Oregon job 13222
#10 - Minnesota job 13121

California, Florida and Txas might be written off to dreams who what to move, but the rest (except Oregon) tell me that the mid-west is pretty down and out as far as jobs.

There is always work, however, as Americans we somehow think we are above doing the jobs that are less desireable. One example I can think of is picking fruit in kalifornia and Washington state. This an observation that I have seen while living in both states. Nobody wants to do it (fruit pickin), but there are some who will do it because they want to make money and not have to think about unions.

Heck for the past 5 months I was working 2 jobs when some people were hard pressed to find one. You have to be willing to do what the other guy is not.

miles, do not go there. There are many employers in that industry who will not hire those he cannot abuse because they're illegal.

While there is plenty of work picking fruit or working at fast food, it doesn't pay near a living wage.

Most of the midwest states have lost factory jobs to countries overseas where either the living wage is so low that it's unbelieveable or they don't have to paya living wage.

I personally think that in the next decade or so you will need to have a degree just to make a decent living. I think the blue collar individual in the US is endangered and I am not quite sure that is so terrible. It is just unfortunate that so many people are getting caught in the change over.

There are many, but not all. It goes to show that there is work and not everybody is going to make 45,000 each year some struggle for 10 years to get that much.

"I think the blue collar individual in the US is endangered and I am not quite sure that is so terrible."

That is a foolish thing to say. It dont matter what people think the blue collar people, they are not expendable. College is good for some, but in my town we have people who have degrees in all sorts of stuff working at Starbucks making minimum wage. While my peers were sitting in college getting their ear filled with a bunch of whooie I was working. There are some of them that still dont have jobs and some that are doing fair. But the problem is the general attitude of people in this nation not doing what it takes to work. As I said I have seen a good bit of it. You are always going to need bricklayers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers and all the sort. These are learned by being on the job wearing the blue collar. Before you go and say something like you just did think about it and ask yourself where you would be without all of the aformentioned blue collar men and women who fix or build your house.
