Don't look now but the boss is watching
Random rants: Congress stood there today yet again blocking a bill that would extend unemployment benefits to those who would lose them at the end of this month. Merry Christmas from the republicans one more time. They had no problem not paying for a war or medical drug benefits or tax cuts for people who don't need them, but throw a few crumbs to the peasants? Never! It's as if they never finished Scrooge or the Grinch that Stole Christmas. Only made it to the part of the thievery and cruelty then put the book down.
The job search has become psychotic. One day I see several jobs listed. Upon applying I find that the company was in the process of laying off workers. Then of course there is a bunch of scams out there too numerous to count. And the rest? If I had another life time to live I could just about qualify. It's frightening to think what the result of the diploma mills will have when yet more unqualified clowns make it through the system. If you think the likes of Sarah and Christine were bad you ain't seen nothing yet.
