The Pres. wants to create a job czar position because he's so worried about all loss of jobs (to overseas cheap labor and economic downfalls).<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The tax cuts have failed to do the trick, and the recovery has so far not been of a size sufficient to create jobs. Ominously, a new study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York says this recession's job losses have been far more structural and permanent than in the past. Now, a new job czar has emerged like the Wizard of Oz to signal that the presidential election cycle is upon us. The agony of the jobless deserves the fullest attention of the president and his eager rivals, and federal action more ambitious than the addition of employment for one happy undersecretary in the Commerce Department</td>

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">WASHINGTON -- For a lot of Americans, it didn't matter that the country emerged from recession last year. According to the Census Bureau, nearly 1.4 million more people in the United States ended up in poverty last year. Almost half were children.<br>
While the poverty rate for children rose, it dropped for people 65 and over. The survey finds that about 12.4 percent of the population lived in poverty. That's nearly 35 million people.</td>

Ooops. When I first read your post, I thought you had written "to <i>oversee</i> cheap labor and economic downfalls".<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
Wouldn't have put it past him.

they would fight efforts by the states to curb offshoring or outsourcing. They've given assurances to India that they would fight any state that tried to prevent the corporations from making an extra buck by going after cheap labor.<br><br>
Bush wants laid off workers to go for retraining in community colleges. Why would my civil engineer uncle want to go back to surveying?<br><br>
I think it is time we all sent Bush and Cheney some brochures to community colleges as they will be out of work beginning in January, 2005. I wonder how they will feel about training thier replacements?
