    in our metro area the classified ads take up 1 column in the paper.  using the state job search service all the unemployed have to use to qualifiy for unemployment,
    there are an average of 10 new postings a week. really?
    seems truck drivers and newspaper delivery people are
    on the up tick.

    so perhaps a tax credit to the employer that hires someone who has been unemployed for 6 months or more might be a help.

    the problem tho for the unemployed person is the job
    pays less than their unemployment. - add in child care,
    gasoline for the car, and if they are really fortunate a health insurance premium lower than cobra if at al........
    all the while knowing that they weren't the first choice,
    and that as soon as the tax credit expires so does the job.
