And for today, an uplifting msnbc.com article on unemployment and today’s young adults.
â€œThe 'scarring effects' of prolonged unemployment can be devastating over a workerâ€™s career,â€ according to the report. â€œProductivity, earnings and well-being can all suffer. In addition, unemployment can lead to a deterioration of skills and make securing future employment more difficult.â€
â€œAt one point, I applied to Whole Foods, hoping they might see some potential for me to move to some type of management position,â€ Hueseman said. â€œThe e-mail I received from them said I was far too overqualified for any of their hourly positions and as such would not be considered for a position.â€
Baby boomers also are delaying their retirement, adding to the competition.
Looking forward to some good times.
