Ive noticed this trend and I tend to agree.

People get very excited about these type annoucements and make it sound like a huge deal. However, the need is very low for "human" workers when you consider computers, and machines that basically do the work. Then you have some companies who want to hire those coming home from war or people who usually have already worked in those jobs before. Thats nothing negative. People who were laid off from similar jobs should get rehired if they know their stuff and its a very good thing hire those who served our country.

But you have a ton of people out of work who do not fit in those lists. Its not even so much about what resume as its about who you are as a person. Someone straight out of College (sometimes Highschool) can beat you for a job for simple reason they are younger and the company does get incentives when they hire certain groups of people.

The thing is when you open a big box type store like a Target or even our recent Super Walmart you can take on a 100 people or more just spread out by shifts, managers, stockers and etc. But that doesnt seem to be a popular choice.

A more popular choie is to open these Made in The USA/Made in America manfacturing companies that might only need 10 or so new employees and after the 1st week who knows if those will keep their jobs.
