But we're losing 8 Frindly's (closing unproductive locations) because of the Kesler sale to corporate. Even fast food jobs are not increasing. I just finished an MS from DeVry in Fast Food Management with a minor in barista, and am having a tough time. All the Olive Gardens and Longhorns have managers. Maybe Starbucks.
So you go 4 years to college then owe $100,000 and can not find a job? It will not be long before colleges start laying off for lack of students. Then we have the 45 plus employees that are overexperienced with master degrees and can not find a job.

Thanks, Chuck, for the encouragement.

I have decided to get another MS in Criminal Justice, and become a grossly overpaid State Trooper. Plus, you get a much better uniform than Longhorns, and the right to restrain evil doers. Look for me sleeping in a blue and gold taxpayer funded patrol car, earning $80,000 plus great benefits. Life is good.

Better yet, join the Henrieta Fire Dept and get $90,000 a year plus benifits. Unlimited overtime. You do not even have to be in the firehouse. Or you could work in a government job and get huge pay and a pension with no effort. Just like Detroit, the party will end soon.

1700 more jobs gone from Rochester. They will keep Goodman street open for 1 year then close that down and move it all to Mexico. Another 800 jobs gone next year. Stop these foreign companies from trashing American Companies. Where is Senator Schumer Schmuck. He only cares about those on welfare. Soon it will be all of America on welfare. The then financial collapse, America wilenator be just like Detroit. No one gives a shit. The new America.
Senator Schumer is busy fighting for a new immigration bill, he needs your support there are 14 million people in this country who need a path to citizenship.

The problem is us,all my neigbors who keep voting in progressive socilaist(Democrats) and now we can't even compete with canada or NJ ? But hey we have gun control,Obummercare and gay marriage and abortion and Big Bird .Divide and conquer (over these issues) while we all go down the tube, Thanks schumer and Louise and Morelle ,for nothing but bad. To save face you have your pow-wow with valeant and instead of everybody getting laid off at once, it is a slow bleed with the same end result, yet you politicians get to look good, like you stood up to 'em. You can't undo your dumb policies for the last twenty years with a little pow-wow. But hey folks,keeping voting the same stupid way, thinking and doing the same old things. Lord help us,we are following the pied piper.

Didn't Chucky and Louise say that they worked out a deal with them and said the jobs will stay in Rochester? OH, never mind, I forgot that both of them will say one thing then do something else like the typical dems they are. Time for both of them to go along with 90% of their party.

See Bart, you keyed in on "The City"
If you had taken the time to read the report; the "CITY" only makes up 50%-/+ of the poor population the rest is made up by "you people"
