(NBC Washington)   The U.S. economy added over half a million jobs in May, but, you know, Biden's president now so the media has no choice but to wring their hands and lament over whether this means our economic system is on the brink of utter collapse   (nbcwashington.com) divider line

We've taken to manufacturing stress now because things are back to normal. But like pizza places and the delivery fees they rolled out 10 years ago, there's no going back to "boring" even if we have to fake it. Trump ruined our collective palate.

No, the media isn't picking on Biden. They're relieved, but fearing for their jobs.

U.S. employers added 559,000 jobs in May, an improvement from April's sluggish gain but still evidence that many companies are struggling to find enough workers as the economy rapidly recovers from the pandemic recession.

Maybe its because people dont want to work for peanuts and be exploited? Theyve realised after months of lockdown that their job isnt who they are and they have better things to do than to work till they farking die?

I want the press to cover Biden laying a daily patch in his Corvette. I'm hoping one day he just does a bunch of donuts on the White House lawn.

Biden: "Jobs, shmobs! Watch this!"

Jed Kolko, chief economist at Indeed, found that the announcements of federal benefits being cut off sparked an increase in job-search activity in those states, such as clicking on job ads, though that increase faded after several days.

What a surprise...I mean...not a surprise at all.

A ton of places furloughed or fired all of their low-pay employees. Many of those people took it as an opportunity to find better work for more pay. Now those companies are all Pikachu-face that no one wants to come back to that crummy job.

Not only that, but some people I've talked to learned a skill like coding while they were living off unemployment. It's a hell of a lot easier to sit down and learn something when you aren't working 3 jobs to pay rent. I haven't seen any official numbers on how many people have joined a new industry but I think it's worth looking into. Most of the employers having trouble looking for help are offering McJobs.

This.  We always talk about jobs as some kind of standard unit; "559,00 jobs," but what's the quality of these jobs?  Are they doing meaningful work?  Are they paying a thriving wage?  Do they provide healthcare and benefits?  Not all jobs are created equal, and honestly most of them are shiat.

We've been asking nicely since 1975. Enough of the "please" crap. The president can't make this decision alone.

I decided to start a job hunt back in February. It was crazy, I would have great conversations with HR/recruiters which would be all happy and perfect until salary expectations came up. And then, it was like I had just killed their firstborn. Fark HR people generally and especially those supporting consultancies.

The people at the bottom, making schitt wages, poor or no benefits, often not able to collect unemployment benefits, were forced to "Find Something New". They just don't feel like returning to being treated poorly, since the last year has shown them how little they were valued. I hope they keep that in mind the next time they go to the voting booth, assuming their state lets them vote.

It happens all the time.  When a Dem is in office, Republicans claim they are low level jobs and their allies in press go along with it.  When a Rep is in office, the Dems claim they are low level jobs and their allies in the press go along with it.  If you are over the age of 24, you must have seen this happen.

It is just like when an out of stater runs for political office.  If he is from the other party, he is a carpetbagger.  If he is on your team, then we are lucky to have such a high quality candidate.

Also see recall elections, an affront to Democracy it they are kicking out your side, but an important check on power if you are recalling the opposition.

Find a new vendor and be sure to tell the losing company exactly why you are leaving.  In about 3-6 months, you'll be getting all kinds of offers to come back and pay less.

Trash haulers usually just raise their rates by a buck a quarter or maybe a buck a month to cover fuel costs.  Your carrier sounds very short sighted.

Let's see...when the economy roared from 2017-2020, the media said it was due to the work
of the Obama administration.  So, using that "logic", then the economy "roaring" should also
be the work of the Trump administration.

So NY democrats called Hillary Clinton a carpetbagger?   Maybe the person who ran against her in a primary, but nearly all of them loved having Clinton pick NY as her home base.

Don't remember the Wisconsin recall of Scott Walker do you?   He wasn't even in office for a 11 months when the recall movement started against him.  Dems used it because they didn't like the results of an election.
