Go North to Canada – It's Where the Jobs Are!

Caught this on Fox News this morning. Be sure to check out the video on the Fox News link!   ~LTG


…..Canada is looking to hire tens of thousands of skilled workers for its booming energy industry. With the third-largest oil and gas reserves in the world, after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela, Canada wants to double its oil production in the next 10 years. While it has plenty of oil to tap, there aren’t enough skilled workers to help secure it…..

“The opportunities are just basically endless up here right now,” said Riordan. “There’s obviously a shortage of workers. You could go anywhere and make some pretty good money.”
Ken Hughes, Alberta’s minister of energy, said his province will need more than 100,000 workers in the next decade. Hughes added that moving to Canada can be an easy transition for Americans.

I encourage qualified people out of work due to the Obama admistration’s job-killing position on energy jobs to go to Fox News.  It provides links for more information on the Canadian Jobs.

Georgia Employer Says It with Signs

Looman did receive some unexpected attention not long after he put up his signs and Facebook photos. He said someone, and he thinks he knows who it was, reported him to the FBI as a threat to national security. He said the accusation filtered its way through the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and finally the Secret Service. Agents interviewed him.
“The Secret Service left here, they were in a good mood and laughing,” Looman said. “I got the feeling they thought it was kind of ridiculous, and a waste of their time.”  Full Story   ~LTG

Seattle Green Jobs Bust: $20 Million = 14 Jobs

Last month Seattle PI reported that the highly touted $20 million stimulus grant that would create 2,000 green jobs in weatherization is a major failure.  And, in my opinion, a criminal waste of money!  ~LTG

Seattle Green Jobs Program is a Bust

Last year, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn announced the city had won a coveted $20 million federal grant to invest in weatherization. The unglamorous work of insulating crawl spaces and attics had emerged as a silver bullet in a bleak economy – able to create jobs and shrink carbon footprint – and the announcement came with great fanfare.
McGinn had joined Vice President Joe Biden in the White House to make it. It came on the eve of Earth Day. It had heady goals: creating 2,000 living-wage jobs in Seattle and retrofitting 2,000 homes in poorer neighborhoods.
But more than a year later, Seattle’s numbers are lackluster. As of last week, only three homes had been retrofitted and just 14 new jobs have emerged from the program. Many of the jobs are administrative, and not the entry-level pathways once dreamed of for low-income workers. Some people wonder if the original goals are now achievable.

How to Create/Keep American Jobs

Beloved fellow Joseph received this e-mail. Help this to go viral!

I want to ask each of you to consider doing the following when you are talking on the phone to any US customer service representative who is based in a foreign country (like India). I have done this twice and it works! 
Any time you call an 800 number (for a credit card, banking, charter communications, health insurance, insurance, you name it) and you are transferred to a representative in a foreign country (like India), please consider doing the following:
After you connect and you realise that the customer service representative is not from the USA (you can always ask if you are not sure about the accent), please very politely (very politely – this is not about trashing other cultures) say, “I’d like to speak to a customer service representative in the United States of America .” 
The rep might suggest talking to his/her manager, but, again, politely say, “Thank you, but I’d like to speak to a customer service representative in the USA .” 
YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY CONNECTED to a rep in the USA. It only takes less than one minute to have your call re-directed to the USA. 
Tonight when I got redirected to a USA rep, I asked again to make sure – and yes, she was from Fort Lauderdale.
Imagine if every US citizen who has to make such a call and then requests a US rep, imagine how that would ultimately impact the number of US jobs that would need to be created ASAP. Imagine what would happen if every US citizen insisted on talking to only US phone reps from this day on. 
If I tell 10 people to consider this and you tell 10 people to consider doing this – see what I mean…it becomes an exercise in viral marketing 101.
Remember – the goal here is to restore jobs back here at home – not to be abrupt or rude to a foreign phone rep. If you agree, please tell 10 people you know and tell them to tell 10 people they know…etc…etc….

Obama Stimulus for Dummies

Given the sluggish economy, before long we taxpayers will receive another “Economic Stimulus” payment.
This is indeed a very exciting but confusing program. Being patriotic Americans, our mission is to help you understand with the following Q & A format:
Q.  What is an “Economic Stimulus payment”?
A.  It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.
Q.  Where will the government get this money?
A.  From taxpayers.
Q.  So the government is giving me back my own money?
A.  Only a smidgen of it.
Q.  What is the purpose of this payment?
A.  The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.
Q.  But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China?
A.  Shut up.
Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

  • If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China, Indonesia or Sri Lanka.
  • If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
  • If you purchase a computer, it will go to India or Taiwan.
  • If you purchase fruits and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and China.
  • If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan, South Korea, and in 5 years, China.
  • If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.
  • And if you buy a bunch of useless stuff, it for sure will go to China.

Instead, keep the money in America by:

  1. Spending it at yard sales (it’s called “recycling”!), or
  2. Buying produce at your local farmer’s market, or
  3. Going to ball games, or
  4. Spending it on prostitutes, or
  5. Beer or tattoos.

(These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S.)
Conclusion: Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute whom you met at the farmer’s market or a yard sale and drink beer all day.
No need to thank us. We’re just doing our patriotic duty and glad we could be of help!
H/t Betty.

Why Americans Are Unemployed

Little Tony started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN CHINA) for 6 am.
While his coffeepot (MADE IN PANAMA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He disputed a credit card bill with a customer service rep (IN INDIA) on the phone (MADE IN MEXICO).
He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN VIETNAM) and tennis shoes (MADE IN CAMBODIA).
After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN CHINA), he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN TAIWAN) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN SWITZERLAND) to the radio (MADE IN MALAYSIA), he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY), filled it with gas (FROM SAUDI ARABIA) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.
At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his computer
(MADE IN JAPAN), John decided to relax for a while.
He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL), poured himself a glass of wine
(MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can’t find a good paying job in AMERICA.
H/t beloved fellow BKeyser!
