Five? Had a guy knock on my door who wanted twenty to shovel my sidewalk. Not a corner lot or anything. Maybe a five minute job.

The Government messing with statistics, slight of hand accounting, and fuzzy math reporting; Say it ain't so!

The economy clearly is exhibiting early signs of cabin fever after a long winter and even greater job gains can be expected in the next few months," said Chris Rupkey


Yes, sound logic indeed! A concept is suffering from cabin fever and since that hot mess of some raw logic must of took up too much page space to let us know what kind of jobs we are talking about. I am left to assume these are those awesome trade skill based jobs I keep hearing about. HAH! History Majors! Pfft! I hear you can make 50, 60, 70. 80 dollars an hour working autobody or HVAC or digging ditches!


Don't believe the hype kids, just say no to that fancy shamncy college. Everytings fine, things are great. Just getting over a little cabin fever apparently!

These must be the shovel ready jobs we were told about 5 years ago.

So, global warming is a job creator?

Given the supply and demand of shovelers this year, the kid down the street was asking $30. I have a corner lot and some time, so I shoveled my own this year.
The deadbeat absentee neighbor had to pay the city to shovel his. That generally costs around $250 after the fines.
There does seem to be a lot of money in snow removal if you have the equipment to clear a parking lot.

The government must be using Hollywood acountants to help them with their figures.

If nothing else, nice that snowmobile makers and salesmen don't have the weather to biatch about this winter.
/now it's merely that no one has disposable income to buy goofy wastes of money like snowmobiles
//interesting that the biggest wastes of money are the greatest fun

Cute that ignorant liberals are still propagating this talking point despite how many times it was debunked.

Well, it was a six foot drunk indian (come to our casino) who claimed that it was the only way he could feed his family of five. I'm thinking he was planning on taking the money to the nearest liquor store or pharmacy.
