Getting people back to work
Jobs, jobs, jobs. Everyone is taking about the best way to create more jobs. So, where can we find the opportunities?
Indulge me for a moment as I fast forward the news cycle to this Friday. It’ll be the first Friday of the month and as such will bring us the September unemployment report. We’re coming offAugust’s flatline– there were no new jobs that month. Fourteen million people, give or take, are out of work — 9.1 percent of the workforce.
Commentator Angela Blackwell makes an important point. That jobs report? It’s an average.
