    •  After the Vietnam war you could not get hired with (0+ / 0-)

      a college degree....you were over qualified and under qualified.  you needed a Master's degree to get hired.  once my husband had his 1st masters he was offered 2 jobs at IBM in different areas.  One in sales and one in programming.  He took sales. But that was before Intelligence in a computer. He sold one of the first CAD systems.  Only stayed at IBM for a couple of years.   since then he has 2 masters and a Doctorate in Ministry.  

      Things hopefully will turn around.  But we have to quit paying corporations to take their factories over seas (remember Sensata and Romney).  Stop paying the corporations and we will see the jobs come back.  I think they are waiting until so many people are unemployed for so long and then they will bring back factories but at Chinese salaries.

      Start thinking of what business you can start up that people need or how you can turn your freelance tech support into a corporation.
