The CBS 60 Minutes segment, "Three million open jobs in U.S., but who's qualified?"
Click-Bond is in Carson City, Nevada at the airport.
Blacks, Hispanics, sex deviates, and minorities only need apply.
Nonsense anyone with an H-1B can get hired.
Are they trying to tell us that the tens of millions of illegal invaders aren’t qualified? Then why the hell are we allowing them to enter and remain?
I guess this is an indictment of our public education system.
Waiting for them to say that in 3,2,1.......
Yet, the purpose of the post, is to help FRPR's looking for work in Michigan and Nevada.
Doesn't matter what your qualification might be if you are not a chosen one you are SOL
Half of the staff at CBS could get hired as janitors.
I've have plenty of options with over 20 years experience in my specialty but I shudder for younger Americans who are not as qualified.
Unfortunately, the reporter missed an opportunity to inquire with the ALCOA president, who is from Germany, about the differences between the education systems in the two countries in areas such as technical skill preparation and internships with industry.
Yeah; I'd like to see black people "working", too.....rather than 4th generation inner-city tribal parasitic tribes that haven't EVER held a job, and live off other people's earnings, using their Obamaphones for crack deals.....
If employers can’t get skilled people for their jobs, they’re not paying enough. That’s how it works. Offer jobs for say, welders, at $15 an hour and you’ll be whining about there not being qualified applicants. Offer jobs for $30 an hour and they’ll be lined up around the block. Welders earning $25 an hour will quit and come work for you.
“If employers cant get skilled people for their jobs, theyre not paying enough.”
That’s exactly the cause in the case of CNC operators.
For decades, companies tried to “dumb down” manufacturing positions so that anyone off the street could push the buttons. Now they are wanting CNC programmers for $10 and hour and wanting the government to pay for their training.
On the other edge of the scale, there are “union” button pushers making $40 and hour that really don’t have any skills other than button pushing.
$12 bucks an hour! That ought to bring in the top talent.
That's the usual excuse --- "corporate America" keeps insisting that skilled workers continue to work for lower and lower pay in order to compensate for the cost of doing business under more and more socialism, which "corporate America" does not have the guts to resist.
"The suits" want skilled workers to provide meritorious service 24/7; but, when that skill level is not compensated by pay and worthy company leadership, it gets harder for companies "to find good employees."
Good leaders would observe the error of their ways and resist the increased burdens imposed by government; but we continue to lose good business leaders, for whom skilled workers will produce well.
The "$12/hr" stated by the Click-Bond rep. is competitive for many un-skilled workers, but not for skilled workers, and he has himself to blame.
BTW, he was protesting a lack of grammar skills in applicants, but he should take the time to look at his own website - the jobs page is "poorly executed" with several blank-double-space gaps between words, missing commas, and missing periods at the end of sentences.
Also, there is no need for the stilted resume jargon found in the company's jobs descriptions --- that appeals to bureaucrats, not to people whose eyes are on the objective of getting good work completed.
I mostly saw the CBS segment as a chance for employment, for some members of Free Republica who are out of work. Also, it may stimulate some to get the skills about which you write; tx.
