So the improving job situation in America continues to beat expectations. Hmmm, this must be more than the Holiday seasonal hiring at work ...

Private-Sector Jobs Grew in February
by Reuters -- March 7, 2012

The pace of job creation by private employers in the United States accelerated more than expected in February, a report by a payrolls processor showed on Wednesday.

The private sector added 216,000 jobs last month, the ADP National Employment Report showed, topping economists' expectations for a gain of 208,000.

January's payroll figures were revised upward to an increase of 173,000 from 170,000.

The GOP has picked a fine time to pivot from ranting about "social issues" to ranting about the "economic recovery" -- that only they can usher in.

Of course like a tree falling in the forest, if they weren't ranting about something, would anyone even know they were there?

In another contra-indicator of the improving Job Trend situation ...

More workers saying: "I quit!"
by Eve Tahmincioglu, -- 03-06-2012

There’s good news on the employment front. A growing number of employees are calling it quits.

In a sign that workers spooked by the Great Recession may be getting some of their career mojo back, two studies find an uptick in the number of employees resigning.

Quits tend to rise when there is a perception that jobs are available and tend to fall when there is a perception that jobs are scarce,” the BLS reported.

Looking to take that next step along your Career Track, well you would not be alone in feeling that oppressive weight lifting -- Finally! ...  Maybe there is life after the Bush Recession, afterall?  It could be a fine time to update those Resumes, folks.

Here is a picture of what this improving Trend line looks like, as of a month ago:


Perhaps the GOP Clown-car applicants, pretending they got the right stuff, should be updating their Resumes too -- just in case that current Job Position they are applying for happens to "fall through"?

A person can always go back to Corporate Raiding, or dreaming up Home-schooling curriculum, can't they?

Afterall this is still America ... where your dreams can still come true, at least in theory anyways ...  There's a sane future out there somewhere. Ranting Conservative Clowns, notwithstanding.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
