Americans were accustomed to the Bread Line nd the Unemployment Line back in the 1930s, but we’re having these today as well.

Some employees lose their jobs through no fault of their own. However, some other times, there is cause for termination.

Dishonesty, evasion, or lack of integrity on the job can be the culprit, as well as lack of training and misunderstandings. It is important to be honest, straightforward, and forthcoming on the job with your management and then to insist on proper training and fair treatment as well.

Some people enjoy bargain shopping and discount coupons. It’s fun!

Others like to save money they can use for other necessities, luxuries, and emergencies. That’s a good reason to bargain shop in the 2010’s – especially with national economic worries.

Still other people bargain shop because they cannot afford retail prices in grocery, clothing, restaurants, and other retail places – especailly upscale establishments.

I think all bargain shoppers can enjoy bargain hunting, even those that MUST save money to make ends meet. It should not be a mark of poverty.

Let’s acknowledge that our country produces and imports some cheaply made goods at both low and high prices. Avoid  both types. 

If consumers can resist Madison Avenue and media advertisements that urge and even trick them into spending money best used elsewhere, then they have a victory. Look a the article below for links to regional bargains and tips for finding even more in your own town.

With some practice and preparation, employment interviewing need not be a mystery or a horror. It can go well and land you a job you never expected to be able to obtain.

One key is appropriate presentation and presence in the interview setting, and you do not need to have a big bank account or rich parents to develop these assets.

Job Listings Quadrupled in NYC in Four Years 2009 – 2013

A NYC Recovery Zone is responsible for the revitalization of Coney Island and the addition of new rides and attractions as well as new jobs for the area. More business at the amusement park means more business for merchants and hotels, restaurants and retail stores in the area.

In July 2009, 134,000 jobs were listed on Internet job search sites for New York City and its 5 burroughs, but these jobs began to increase, even during a recession. This was because of the movement to create city Recovery Zones set up to create new jobs by bringing in new businesses with tax incentives and other attractive conditions. Stimulus Funds helped with some of the costs, but after th efunds were spent, businesses and jobs continued to increase in number — By November 2013, NYC and its burroughs had over 434,500 advertised positions open for job seekers.

Since Superstorm Sandy hit the area, new Recovery Zones have been set up and jobs are increasing even more, including construction jobs necessary for the clean up and rebuilding of many local neighborhoods that include hard-hit Staten Island.

For types of jobs available and additional information, see New York City Recovery Zones.

Los Angeles is the largest incorporated city in the State of California.

From June 2008 to December 2009, the city experienced an increase in Intgernet based job listings across all sites of 22%, according to leading job search engines like SimplyHired and Indeed. The increases did not stop in 2009, however.

From 2010 – 2012, increasing numbers of jobs were consistent until March 2012 in California statewide, thanks in part to the growing Aerospace Industry and the rapidly expanding NASA Commerical Crew companies in California.

Job listing declined from March – December 2012, but began to increase rapidly again in January and reachinng a 39% increase, or 39,500 more jobs by August.

The Detroit Institute of Arts Museum (DIA) is a multi-billion dollar collection of 100 fine arts galleries that was named a National Historic Place in the United States.

Located at the Wayne State University, the museum is one of several installations included in the well maintained Detroit Cultural Center Historic District surrounding Woodward Avenue. The East Ferry Avenue Historic District just east of the DIA is refurbished and preserved, containing nwer townhouses among 19th-century mansions. Over 200 adults and youth manage garden plots in the professionally landscaped Community Gardens, especially around the DIA and neighborhoods to the east.

With collections worth billions of dollars, the museum earns many additional billions in income each year from agreements to show art pieces and exhibits that include historic works. The art is held in the public trust and is not permittted to be sold or auctioned to help the city pay bankruptcy debts.  In fact, citizens, artistis, and auction houses are outraged at the thought. See some of the selections and history at:

Legislators that approved the 2009 Federal Minimum Wage increase and the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) during Barack Obama’s first presidential term did not intend for Unemployment Benefits to be reduced. However, because of employer workarounds to offset the new legislation and its costs, this is what is occurring some places in the USA. It may happen again in 2013.

Campaign 2012 for President of the United States was the closest race in 76 years. It was likely the most expensive in billions of dollars spent, and the most bitter, scandal-filled, propagandist campaign to date.

Some Americans turned off their TVs and radios and stopped answering their doors when campaign workers came knocking as late as 8:30 PM in my metro area. Corporations seemed to be behind the hard campaigning, as depicted in the 2012 Will Ferrell film The Campaign.

Mail boxes and front porches were filled with slick campaign handbills. It was a win-at-any-cost election and we’d seen an eerie foreshadowing in the late 1980s  —

MAX HEADROOM (1987 – 1988), A Prophetic TV Series

In a dystopian future (like 2012) we are ruled by TV networks & CEOs. Every home must have a TV that plays retail ads and propaganda 24/7/365 and the street corners are full of blaring TVs.
