I read 2 stories on msnbc that raised my spirits regarding the job market, and economy in general.
Manufacturing growing at fastest pace since ’04-The U.S. manufacturing sector expanded in March at its strongest pace in 5 1/2 years, leading the rebound from the recession on growth in exports and inventory rebuilding.
162,000 jobs added in March, most in 3 years-The nation's economy posted its largest job gain in three years in March, while the unemployment rate remained at 9.7 percent for the third straight month.
Links to both stories are in reply below.
Those who are well educated in how markets work and ebb and flow in general, will understand that going from bad to good is not an overnight or 1 year process. Things really are starting to look up, slowly but surely.

I'll leave you with this bit of info, when you buy a foreign car, you support 40 American families, but when you buy an American car you support 200 American families. food for thought.
I worry about supporting my family not 200 other families.. The reason Gm closed was because of the unions, they were getting paid for more then they were worth , Unions have this sense of entitlement that makes me sick, they would always show up at my hubby's job-sites wearing rat suits and they even pushed over some trucks, everyone should have a right to bid and get a job not just unions. Most union workers are lazy and they get on unemployment half the year!

No. Sorry, I don't. Because when Obama decides to cease rocket development at NASA resulting in nearly 7000 jobs directly lost, the "fall out" will be in excess of 23,000 jobs, just in Florida. You know, people who DEPEND on the Space Center to generate business are affected?!
"That sum includes 9,000 "direct" space jobs and -- conservatively speaking -- 14,000 "indirect" jobs at hotels, restaurants, retail stores and others that depend on activity at the space center"
Mmm...mmm...mmm...barack hussein obama
