I was thinking this would be a buyers market so I am kind of confused about all of this.

This is the main reason I am assuming the job rate will fall like a rock by 2014. By then, the workforce will have reeducated themselves enough to make themselves qualified by the new job market.

1/3 of the unemployment is caused by exactly what you are describing: mismateched job opportunities with job applicants.

That's a curve that will fix itself, studies suggest by 2014.
