The Job Market and Economy

jobmarket

Their has been a huge debate going on lately about the job market and its success rate . Some people say the job market is doing the best it has ever done while some people are saying that its failing .

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (1)the most current unemployment rate is 6.7% and that’s not even including people who have quit looking due to a bad result and/or not being qualified for the job . The problem with this situation is a huge part of the 6.7% are college graduates with more than $50,000 in student loans that is expected to be paid back six months after graduation,

Their is an old saying ,”The children are the future ” so if the children are our future then we as a country have a future filled with economic problems . According to the American Student Assistance 60%of students that attend college have to take out loans and their are currently $1 trillion in total outstanding student loan debt in the US today(2) . If we as a country have an entire generation that is bundled down with massive student loan debt then how can we expect to maintain the economic prosperous country that has kept this country going for years?

We as a country need to be focused on creating jobs because student loan providers expect their money to be paid back six months after graduation and this country can not thrive economically on trillions of dollars worth of student loan debt. . The main thing we as a country need to focus on is what are we as a generation going to leave for the next generation? As of now we have $17 trillion dollars worth of debt and that’s not even counting other unpaid bills.

We have a lot of priorities in this country but the debt rate simply isn’t number one like it should. Right now as we speak China is currently buying out American lands to cover for some of our debts.This should concern everyone not only because of our debt situation but because we are no longer the superpower we used to be .

If we as a country don’t get our finances right we will have nothing left to give to the next generation. Thirty years ago a student was guaranteed a job , not any job but a job with great benefits, after high school but now a student is lucky to get a job at all and if he does their will be no to very little benefits .

This is a problem that didn’t just appear overnight it has been a problem for a while now that has been worsening over time. If we as a country want to continue to be the “Land of the Free” we need to pay our bills and stop creating new ones. I understand we have to spend some money but what I am talking about is politicians having $1 million hotel bills on the taxpayer’s expense.

We as a country need to address this problem because according to history countries who don’t handle their debt have very bad endings.

Religious Freedom in America

Religious-freedom-part-four

Religious freedom in this country is under constant attack especially with Christians . Hobby Lobby is now fighting the Obama Administration over selling contraceptives .Hobby Lobby has Christian beliefs but the Obama Administration doesn’t care about that they want everyone to follow their rules .

If the owners of Hobby Lobby were Muslim ( No disrespect to Muslims ) then they wouldn’t have even had to go to battle at the Supreme Court as soon as they would’ve voiced their disapproval Obama would’ve immediately changed the law . We as Americans need to come together and realize that this country is being fundamentally changed but as long as we have the Constitution , Amendments and the Bill of Rights we have the right to fight for our freedoms .

Today the Vatican Chief Justice publicly stated that Obama is continually making laws that are anti-Christianity .

http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/2014/03/24/vatican-chief-justice-obamas-policies-have-become-progressively-more-hostile-toward-christian-civilization/

When he said that I was glad because the Obama Administration needs to know that this country isn’t going to be turned into an anti-God country we will fight for our God-given rights . This country was established under religious freedom and NO religion should have to dump their beliefs because of their anti Christian government . History has shown us that counties who have had anti Christian laws have not lasted long at all that’s why it’s important for this country to maintain all Godly morals that have kept us number one for centuries .

I just wanted to post this article to show people that religious freedom is under attack , especially Christianity , so it’s very important to stay informed on what’s going on because you would be surprised at what is going on especially if you are uninformed.  A lot of mainstream news sites are paid for by the government so they can’t really report on anything that is deep.

A lot of the stuff you see on the news has already been masterfully prepared . On some of my previous posts I go in detail on how some emails were leaked showing how CEOs at news stations email the reporters telling them what to discuss and what not to discuss.

What is your degree worth?

Their are 320,000 waiters and waitresses with college degrees and more than 8,000 of them have postgraduate degrees !

Recently on America Now their was a special on education in America . The discussion was about how millions of young adults are going to college each year and graduating with millions of dollars in loans but when they come out they can’t even find a job .

A lot of young adults come out of college with no kind of experience in their major so when they do try to get a job they can’t get hired because they have no experience . A lot of young adults who go to college are actually tricked into taking classes they really don’t need to graduate therefore they have to spend extra time in college and create extra student loan bills .

America has always been known as a country of opportunity ;People come from other countries to get an education and they don’t return to their homeland they stay over here . The problem is too many young adults are born in America but they are living a nightmare . People including myself have always been taught that a degree will automatically entitle you to a good paying job but that’s not so true in today’s economy .

Instead of going to a four year university a lot of young adults are going to trade school or a community college . I know their is someone reading this thinking ,”No one is going to hire you unless you have a Bachelors degree ” and that is a huge myth .

According to CNBC the number of trade school students have increased and they are doing the job for more students . CNBC also states that trade schools used to be looked at as a “poor stepsister”(which means poor alternative ) but now they are looked upon as equal as a four year university .

As I mentioned above most jobs require some sort of experience so if someone graduated from an Ivy League college with all A’s that is the same as not having a degree because you have not proven to have enough knowledge in the field you are trying to go in . According to job data from the early 1990s to 2008 their were 20 million jobs created but out of those 20 million jobs that were created 12 million didn’t require a college degree and these statistics are from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics . So as we look at the data we can see only 8 million jobs required a college degree .

I know that it sounds like I’m saying a college degree isn’t required but that’s not what I am saying . Having more than a high school diploma can be an advantage because according to USGovInfo a person who has more education earns more but this is not always the case .

http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/moneymatters/a/edandearnings.htm

A lot of people aren’t informed that we are living under a new economy but the fact is we are . Forty years ago a Bachelors degree would have ensured you a great job and a great life but that’s unfortunately not the case anymore . According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics more than 17 million people are working jobs that require less than the skill level associated with a Bachelors degree .

So once we break the statics down we see that their are 320,000 waiters and waitresses with college degrees and more than 8,000 of them have postgraduate degrees !
