Not sure where you get that when the question was job approval.

The people who genuinely think Obama is doing a good job must not have any real property or assets.

LOL, Bush should learn from Obama. Give em Obama phones and welfare. It's an easy sell.

if that were the problem, we'd see labor shortages and wages rising as employers bid for the people who are in the labor market.

But we aren't seeing that.

its a demand problem, not a supply problem. The demand problem is due to the continued after effects of the financial crisis.

the phone program is an FCC program that antedates Obama (er that means it came before him)

Actually, we are seeing labor shortages. Just because people are out of work doesn't mean they are actively seeking a job. Do a quick Google search and you will find that employers are begging for qualified help, especially those industries that require hands-on work and a skill-set to go with it.

-New college graduates don't fit that description.
-Illegal immigrants don't fit that description.
-High school dropouts don't fit that description.
-Welfare mama's don't fit that description
-Elderly don't fit that description.

So who will do the work? The very skilled workers that exist are actually already employed.
