Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 908 -- Anemic Job Creation.

Pitiful Jobs Numbers-

Texas Workforce Commission Chairman Tom Pauken has some scary and gloomy numbers about youth employment (or lack thereof) in the United States:

Other terrible numbers, especially for young folks:

Unemployment among teenagers is at 24.6 percent, nearly double what it was 10 years ago. For those 19 to 24-years-old, unemployment is 15.6 percent compared with 6.8 percent in 2000. Even college graduates are finding it hard to land jobs. Unemployment for those with bachelor’s degrees rose in November to a 30-year high of 5.1 percent.

....

Privately held firms with fewer than 500 employees have added an average of 35,000 net jobs a month in 2010 compared to 143,000 in 2006 and 79,000 in 2007. Fewer jobs being created in the private sector means less in the way of employment opportunities for young Americans.

No wonder Barack Obama's approval rating has sunk from around 60% to about 44% among young voters.

Democrats are bad news, especially for young workers in America.

Meanwhile, Texas holds the blueprint for job creation in the United States.

Efficiencies in the market!
LARGER Corporation fascism!
Financial Speculation on the markets!
The capture of regulatory government agencies by large corporations!
Odious regulations against small businesses that favor only large corporations!
23% of all wealth concentrated into 2% of all real wealth!
Free trade doesn't work!
Enormous money in the political process!
Government entitlement programs!

The only solution is the educational process for the hard sciences! Period! We have to make the new technologies to make the next Industrial Revolution and without engineers and scientists we will not be able to compete against Indiana & China. All the above can be fixed with the population involved in the political process to vote in self enlightened self-interest!If you act like spoiled brats you get exactly the government you deserve.
