Hey thats what I want for Christmas too!
I even have that higher education they are talking about, but apparently masters degrees aren't that impressive anymore.

His 1st mistake was coming to Michigan. Someone should have told him that we are all fighting for the few jobs that Gran@ss has not run out of here.
I think Gran@ss should hire us all. We can cater her fancy meals, wash her limo, style her hair and do her nails, laundry etc... the list goes on and on.
Good luck at the job fairs. The companies that use job fairs are seeking minimum wage workers.

What was this guy thinking? Doesn't he watch or read the news? Move to Michigan to get a job????? What's he going to do next, take a vacation in Florida to go skiing????
He should have stayed in Phoenix and moved his family there, they would have all been better off.

The only available jobs are in low-wage retail or customer service. It's so bad in Michigan that the only reason people are coming INTO this state, rather than leaving, is for the extensive welfare benefits. How strange is that? We have the highest jobless rate in the nation, but give more money to freeloaders. Nice, huh? Thanks, Granholm!

There are NO jobs in Michigan. The only jobs around are ones that you have to quit due to bad owners that are verbally abusive both in the work place and in their own homes and then they bad reference you so you cannot get another job due to their own personal problems. I know this to be true because I am going thru this problem myself. Been unemployed for a year now and the ex boss has "black listed" me so now I am loosing my house because he says I am a "hot head" which is far from the truth. I left because I couldn't take him treating everyone so bad but yet he is says it's me. He won't take any responsibility whatsoever.
Am gonna be homeless because he is revenging me not putting up with his yelling and screaming and no one could do anything right in his eyes.
