Actually the economy was on its way down long before President Obama became president. The economy went south when the manufacturing of electronic products and automobile electronic parts was sent out of the country along with various other mass production jobs.

Don't believe these numbers cooked up just for Presidential election…

I get multiple calls for all very suitable positions and that's far it goes nothing happens. Then I see in news they are paying 6 figures to foreign temp workers for the same job. What is happening to the hiring citizens first? How do they not know that could hurt economy? Mostly foreign workers from countries where population is over Billion/ Billion and half so you know there are millions that they can hire. So what are the chances…
Now all of a sudden we are all together as 7 Billion world population due to Globalization this is big stress on the system and if stretched it will only break….
