(article quote): "Nearly one-third of the economists surveyed by the National Association for Business Economics said their companies added jobs in the April-June quarter." ---- Are these "real" economists or just pseudo-economists? I ask because none reported how many full time with benefits, livable wage, and pension plan jobs were created. Not even a computed average wage was provided! They were only able to say "jobs were created." Whoop-dee-doo. The middle class is not being properly and respectfully restored and these economic reports from these economists are only "media filler" (aka garbage) because they have to say at least something in order to remain at the corporate trough. But, I bet they get paid quite a bit for providing completely irrelevant information! Quite a bit more in compensation than minimum wage, no health benefits, and minus a pension plan. Would these economists recommend that those in Detroit stand in the sidewalks outside the "GM Renaissance Center" buildings and just wait for the TRICKLE DOWN? A trickling down from people whose sad primary goal in life is the accumulation of wealth. Americans actually believed that overly paid people would not maximize their personal profits and give back nothing? Yikes. Wake up people. The next time a CEO claims that his exorbitant salary, bonuses, stock options, insurance, freebie transportation, etc, etc is due to the thousands of employees that he oversees (meaning "is responsible for") and one of those employees then commits a horribly bad act, demand the CEO's resignation for not overseeing properly. That is just how truly simple it is to start correcting this situation.

Nice rah rah story, the reality is hiring is weak except for retail, hospitality or part time jobs.
