With a 20% US unemployment rate, why can't you get to work on time!

• The Political Commentator
With the total US unemployment rate around 20%, the release of the Empire Manufacturing Survey revealed some unbelievable statistics about the quality of the people who are actually still looking for work! Within a disappointing Empire Manufacturing Survey are numbers that look at the difficulty employers are experiencing trying to find employees who possess some of the basic job skills required on a day to day basis. These necessary skills include basic math, basic English and the ability to interact with others.

Maybe if these complaining employers would actually hire someone over 40, instead of running like hell the other way when someone of that age applies for a job, then maybe they would have someone who wasn't just this side of stupid and has an actual attention span and a work ethic.

But noooo, then they would have pay something that approaches a 'living wage'.  Can't do that.  Gotta beat the Street by a  penny on those stock prices and pay that CEO a hefty bonus instead.

So quit complaining and put up or shut up.
