Wonder if the imprssionalbe college kids that voted for obama are hoping for a change in the job market right about now?

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 24 percent of the Class of 2010 had landed jobs by the time they graduated in the spring, an increase of four percent over 2009 but far short of 51 percent in 2007.

Maybe the plan is to put many of them on Obama's government payroll:

Americorps Begins $234M Handout to Community Groups


Published June 07, 2010
| Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- The government took the first step Monday in expanding the AmeriCorps program, awarding grants to nonprofits and other organizations to put 57,000 AmeriCorps members to work in communities around the country.

The grants, totaling $234 million, are the first to be released under a new law aimed at tripling the national service program by 2017. States and territories will also get an additional $129 million for AmeriCorps slots. Officials expect to have a total of 85,000 people enrolled in the program this year.

AmeriCorps participants mentor children, clean up parks or buildings and weatherize homes for the poor among other activities. Some get a living stipend while they are working for up to a year. Most participants, who are predominantly 18 to 26, get about $11,800.

Teach for America, the program that trains top college students to teach in poor communities, received the largest grant—$11.4 million for 6,621 AmeriCorps members. It's just one of hundreds of national and local organizations, state service commissions, religious groups and other institutions getting the awards from the federal Corporation for National and Community Service.

In April 2009, President Barack Obama signed a law to gradually increase the size of the Clinton-era AmeriCorps to 250,000 enrollees from 75,000. The measure outlines five broad categories where people can direct their service: helping the poor, improving education, encouraging energy efficiency, strengthening access to health care and assisting veterans.

Because of the law's focus, programs that help veterans were among the newest recipients of AmeriCorps grants. Operation Welcome Home, run by the California Department of Veterans Affairs, will get almost $560,000 for 80 AmeriCorps members who will help returning service members in California with the transition back to civilian life.

This is a sure result of the free market meddling with the educational infrastructure in this country.

It is quite sickening.

So you agree we need to take education, especially at the college level back to a un subsidized level? The cost of higher education to be paid by the students? Get government out of it and let Colleges and Universities pay their own way?

That's why the left has owned education lock-stock-and-barrel since the 1960's. It's quite sickening.

They just have too high of standards. There's plenty of census jobs available.

The new health care bill will eventually create lots of new jobs that pay under $25,000. Of course, they'll be jobs that previously paid $40,000.

I'm not happy I voted for him but not because of something he has only the illusion of control over.


Having said that, I'm very much glad I voted for him over McCain, who continues to go towards the top of "should be removed immediately" list.

No. I believe that the government should be responsible for making every payment that each student owes in order to show the pursuit of intelligence, rather than failures.

After the indoctrination they went through in college and the from the MSM, why wouldn't they be glad they voted for Obama?

It is still Bush's fault that we are in the shape after almost 4 years of democratically controlled congress and almost 2 years of democratically controlled White House.

Will the Dems ever take " any responsibility" at all for the recession happening on their watch through the Bush years of Congress ?

But maybe massive unemployment really is good news. Nancy Pelosi says unemployment checks are the best form of stimulus there is. She'll be proven right if about 200 Democrat members of Congress and a few hundred thousand Federal bureaucrats start receiving them.

I wish I could believe we are in the early stages of a recovery, but I just don't see how it's going to happen when the private sector is being slammed with new regulatory mandates like ObamaCare, that make it much more expensive to hire new workers, when new financial regulations are going to add to the cost of making loans to business; massive tax increases slated to go into effect in 2011; and the threat of draconian environmental regulations through Cap and Trade. Not to mention Federal deficits hoovering up dollars and making them into transfer payments to bureaucrat pension funds.

Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe the supercompetent megageniuses in the Obama Regime can make socialism work this time. How much harder can running a 14 Trillion dollar economy be versus cleaning up an oil spill or running an automotive rebate program?
