Got a Job? Make a few Bucks during the Holiday Rush
For the past couple of months the unemployment rate in LA has actually declined. The drop is marginal, a percent here or there, and it's also a seasonal increase. But, nonetheless, if you really wanted a job you're probably going to be able to find one at this moment. Albeit, you won't get paid much and it's gonna suck (stocking shelves for everyone buying gifts this Christmas that they can't afford), but at least you'll have a $10/hr job. Maybe it's not that rosy. If you're 75 and you and your wife have to work at Walmart for 8 hours a day during the rush to make a bit more cash, well I do'nt think you're better off even with a job (compared to none at all). Who wants to be 75 and still working (at Walmart no less). Jobless numbers in LA for last month declined to 561,500, down by about 3% from the previous month. Great news, but we'll see if it sticks in the Winter months. IF we see a rise then all this 'good news' will be indicative of a larger unresolved problem. Thanks again to san diego bankruptcy lawyers CC Legal for the stats.
