If you couldn't get a job in Florida with your neck tattoo what makes you think your prospects up here will be much better? And it's not like trailers and low cost living are an option here.
Some friends and myself coined the term "everlasting job stoppers" for neck tattoos.

Down here they're "unemployment stamps" and "carnival application marks".

I don't know why anyone would come up here for jobs lol

I remember when we first moved to Polson. A Salish woman told us at the grocery store check out "The only way you're going to make it up here is if you're an Indian or a rich person".

Some people here in Montana are working. The unemployment rate for the state is only 4.1%. There are some counties with a higher rate as they are remote.

Here in the South East sectors, it is even lower. Here in our area, McDonald's starts high school kids at $10 an hour while training then jump to $12 an hour. Adults can start at $14 an hour, and they hire on the spot, and work you lots of hours. Every where you look there are help wanted signs in all types of fields.

I would be interested to see the full unemployment statistics for Montana. Yes, the unemployment rate is 4.1% but what are the non-participation rates and the underemployment rate? Non-participation may not be too high as early retirement isn't common in Montana. Underemployment is very common with part-time/low paying full time job holders would like something with higher pay.

It's usually liberals bailing from the disasters that other liberals created. The scorn is from people who fear that liberals will infect their new home...with the poison they just fled.

I'm also curious about raw numbers. There are always those that unemployment has run out so they are no longer registered, housewive tha work strictly at home, self employed, those that work 'under the table', semi retied,/semi work, hold multiple jobs, etc... There are so many variables that it is impossible to track. My dad used to say, "tripple the unemployment rate, you'll have a more realistic number".

It's generally twice the number posted. There are people that have stopped looking, people than cannot re-enter the workforce due to some reason, and then there are those that do not wish to have a job. The U-6 report is another measuring tool. Table A-15. Alternative measures of labor underutilization

Quote:
U-6 Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force
The U-6 number currently is at 10.8%, nationally.

It's funny- that count has been around for a long, long time however a lot of people, including media, fail to ever really recognize it. Technically it's not a great number to use, because it includes not only 'discouraged' workers, but slackers as well. In other words- if someone doesn't want to work (or be counted in the doles), why count them?
