I was thinking of putting a poll up on guessing today's unemployment numbers earlier, but if I had, no one would have gotten it right because I wouldn't have gone high enough.
From the Bureau of Labor Statistics the number of unemployment actively looking for work, 5,645,000. 2.6 million of those people lost their job in the last 4 months.
The number of people who could only find part-time work is now 1,764,000.
So why is it the Government won't even acknowledge they offshore outsource jobs using taxpayer money. That's right, both Federal and State governments ship work overseas. This is especially true in state social services.
Also, the United States brings in about 1.5 million temporary foreign guest workers.
Does it make any sense whatsoever to bring in labor or offshore outsource with these kind of unemployment rates and no occupational area left unscathed?
