You had me until you started blaming Obama and the liberals, that is a red herring. I doubt the word gets out to the inner city black folks and doubtful companies are actively marketing to or recruiting them.<quoted text>How can anyone hire any black people when they refuse to apply? here's a great example for you. I was part of a job fair last Friday. There were over 200 stores and businesses hiring. It was held in a big suburb on the border of Chicago. I saw three black people all day and one was doing the hiring for PACE. Illinois has a true umemployment rate of over 20%--and those collecting unemployment at this time of 11%, one of the highest, if not the highest unemployment rates in the country. These were not low level jobs. But the applicants were sparse. For two days there were 20 applicants for 45,000 a year jobs, even less for 30,000 dollar a year entry level. And still even less for 10-12 dollar an hour entry level jobs. NOW you tell me what is wrong here? you can't give jobs to people who will not apply. I would have thought with all the blather from the liberals that people would have been lined up around the Convention Center fighting to get in. Over 1200 jobs needed to be filled and there were never more applicants than recruiters. O'bama socialism has taken hold-and you liberals are too stupid to see that these people DO NOT want to work when they are getting an O'bama check, an O'bama phone, an O'bama food card. and O'bama housing.
Seems to me this would be a perfect opportunity for the Republicans to step in and say here we have an avenue for you to find jobs, hmmm I wonder why they don't?
Maybe we need more community organizers.
