The State of Our Economy

You know the government stimulus plan that was supposed to spurt job creation is working out really well when job fairs have to be cancelled because not enough companies are coming forth to offer jobs:

A Massachusetts employment organization has canceled its annual job fair because not enough companies have come forward to offer jobs.

Richard Shafer, chairman of the Taunton Employment Task Force, says 20 to 25 employers are needed for the fair scheduled for April 6, but just 10 tables had been reserved. One table was reserved by a nonprofit that offers human services to job seekers, and three by temporary employment agencies.

It’s OK though. The government will simply do another stimulus plan to spurt job creation. After all if something doesn’t work the most logical solution is to try it again but harder (at least that’s what the Keynesian think as they blame every depression on the government not spending enough money they don’t have).
