Freudian Slip - C h i c a g o Style



We knew things are worse than presented... But this much worse? And in Chicago of all places - the city of (aggressively enforced) spin?

What to do about U.S. workers' skills gap


-January 22, 2012-

Chicago has an employment rate of nearly 10 percent, but it also has more than 100,000 unfilled jobs.

You see this across the U.S. Thirteen million Americans are looking for work, but the U.S. has 3.3 million job openings. Why are those jobs going unfilled?

Those jobs aren't for OWS schlubs, those are union jobs waiting for sons, daughters, cousins, union double dippers. Remember we fight for our union brothers and sisters, cousins ect. We suffer that they may prosper, it's what we do!

Employment at 10%? Im stunned ...Is it really that - a l l - those people are stupid, as Rahm arguably seems to imply in the article? Do they really need more student l o a n s?

Or maybe the whole city is on the TSA No-fly, No-buy, No-workyworky list. (bad humor)
