Corporate Job Creation


  1. That about sums it up. Whatever happened to the good old days, when corporations were forbidden from investing in other companies and had to cease operations after 20 years?

  2. Yep. I'm going into a training class to add other stuff to what I do (there will be a test!).... people don;t even ask anymore if there is "money involved", we already know the answer.


    It is an employers market & the mantra (regardless of how sucky the conditions) is
    you're lucky to have a job.

  3. Fran is right; it's an employers' market. It's increasingly been an employers' market for most of the past 20 years. The exception was a brief stretch toward the end of the '90s when the economy ran hot because of the tech bubble.

    There will always be swings back and forth, but having either an employers' market or job seekers' market for too long is a sign of an economy in trouble and an economic/political system out of whack.

    What scares me is that so many people, apparently out of ignorance or from having been brainwashed by free-market religionists, believe it has to be this way. They seem to think it's like the weather; you can complain but not really do anything about it. That's just what people profiting obscenely from this open-ended employers' market want people to think.
