Did Republican Leader John Boehner really say on Sunday we can’t “begin to talk about potential solutions”? Honestly?
Are we really going to allow the nation to fail for the next two years because the Republicans don’t want Obama to succeed? How does that work?
High unemployment? We’re sorry, but if everyone who wants a job had a job, Obama would get the credit.
Is that there answer?
Is anyone paying attention? Or, are we all drinking tea?
I saw a very quick blurb in last week’s Businessweek. I’ve been a little busy, so I’m behind on my reading. According to the blurb, there are 2.3% of jobs out there that cannot be filled with the right people. 2.3% — that would bring our unemployment rate down to around 6.5%.
But, why can’t these companies find the qualified people — here are two my quick and dirty off the top of my head ideas.
- We have a huge disconnect between out secondary education and our business needs. We need to get business and higher education better aligned. How we can do that or where we can start — that I don’t know. But, it’s sad, isn’t it?
- We have a huge housing problem because qualified people are now locked into homes they can’t sell, so they can move to the jobs.
Anyone else have any ideas?
