It’s the holiday hiring

 

On Saturday night I watched the news on KXLY, and they had a nice little article on the fact that some merchants are gearing up for the holidays by hiring temporary help. That sounds reasonable; there are still a few people out there with a couple of bucks. Holiday hiring has been around for a good many years. Unfortunately, when January comes, temporary help gets laid off.

On Sunday, I pick up The Spokesman-Review to read an Associated Press article that the jobs report is really shaking up the race. What planet are the reporters from?

In January, the temps will be looking for jobs once more, unemployment will be up and I pray that President Barack Obama will be making plans for his presidential library.
