You Can Find a Job...If You REALLY Want One


There is no shortage of jobs, only intention. 

The US has created more than 15 million jobs over the past seven years. And every month, two to four million of them go unfilled.

What do you think you can do about that?

I asked 10 homeless people in Portland recently this question: 

If you could be guaranteed a job that paid at least $10 per hour, would you take it? 

All ten said yes until I followed up with this question: Would you take it if it was manual labor or fast food? 

Nine of them said no. They'd rather get free services and sleep in the transient camps.

Fast food, health service, farm work, office work. Plenty of jobs. But many Americans, even the homeless, seem to think they're above all that. 

In the mean time, the camps and soup kitchens continue to fill up to the point of bursting at the seams. 

No wonder we need immigrants in America.
