Jobless Need Not Apply

Jobless Need Not Apply thumbnail

Perhaps you are a bit confused by the titled of  this blog entry.  So am I, but that’s what’s  increasingly being posted on

If you don’t have a job, you’ll find that it  becomes the basis upon which you’ll be discriminated against.  And unlike age, race, or  gender, you won’t have a leg to stand on.

The new “discriminated against” minority are    the nearly 25% of Americans (higher in some,  lower in other states) that are too “jobless” to  get a job.  How “jobless” is “too jobless?”  Well,  just like the panties of B-rated actresses and  schoolgirls in Japan, that have an expiration  (“sell by”)  date, the jobless can be without a job a bit too  long to be considered eligible to land work.

Are we talking about people without a track record for looking?  Nope, these are folks who could have sent out hundreds of job applications, but if nobody wanted them within six months of their last job, they are increasingly finding that nobody wants them now.

That’s 6.3 million Americans who are jobless longer than six months, and are likely to stay that way.


Keep working!
