Re: GOP takes full control of NC.....and unemployment rates fall off the table......UPDATED: NC Teacher minimum pay to be increased 14%
Live in WNC. Forty years of Democratic rule produced a bankrupt state. Unlike the Federal government NC can't print money to pay it's bills. Now that steps are being taken to correct the situation the communists in the state are raising holy hell. Groups like the "Moral Authority" are marching on Raleigh "for justice". These groups want to make me puke.

I am a plant manager for a heavy manufacturing industry. We have had to do back flips to find people willing to work. You were DAMNED lucky to find anyone, much less anyone that was literate and could pass a drug test. That is starting to change. We have seen a definite uptick in people looking for a job. We pay on average twice the minimum wage for semi-skilled workers.

One of the worst problems this state has had is the heavy influx of people from the North who come down here to get away from the disaster they created up there only to try and create the same damn mess here!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11539898


Name the plant? Double min. wage is about what electricians make here in WNC at the few industrial plants we have. I wouldnt call that semi-skilled.

You are lucky to make $12 an hour here, hell $12 an hour here in Asheville is not even a working wage. It takes two jobs to even afford living here.

There are no good jobs in WNC, we are suffering. So prove it man, give where you hire for twice min. so I can send my family and friends there.

I am one of the long time unemployed and I can't even get a job through a temp agency. I seriously don't know what to do. My husband was laid off six months ago and all we had too live on and it was cut off at the first of the year. Our children are grown so thank god we only have ourselves to worry about. We have been walking to apply for jobs because we don't have gas money. If our phone gets cut off we won't be able to get any calls from anyone that might hire either one of us. This cock fight between the rep.and dems. Will probably put us on the streets.

Well, it's sad you see it that way.

Only a libtard utopia has the government providing for all your wants and needs.

People helping people is what we can rely on, not government.

Before the government started this "war on poverty" the poverty rate was about 4-5%.

Now, how many decades later, the poverty level is about 6%.

So it doesn't seem to have helped. Throwing money at a problem doesn't fix it.

You dumb ass. Once the long-term unemployed stopped getting unemployment, they were removed from being counted among the unemployed. Unemployment rates only count people receding unemployment insurance. The real statistic would be who actually has a job. The GOP counts on stupid people like you to look at graph and have no understanding of what it means. It's like closing the soup kitchen and then claiming the number of hungry people has declined.

Your full of it! I live about 50 miles east of "ASSville" and run a manufacturing plant for automotive. Just as the other gentleman said; for awhile you could not find anyone who wanted to work. Some never even came back from orientation after lunch! It has picked up and I also see a better group of people that show up and stay. As far as wages go we start without any skills at $12.00 plus and top out around $28.00 for skilled trades that aren't salary. You live in a town that used to be tourist based economy and mostly still is. Unfortunately it has become the "East Coast version of San Fan-faggo." Gays, Lesbos, Starving artist, Tree huggers, you know basically Idiotville. You just need to move if you want a good job. No, I won't post the name of the plant either; won't be that hard to find if you have half a brain. If you can't maybe that is where the problem lies.

Yes, I'm sure you run a "manufacturing plant for automotive," whatever that is. How stupid do you think we are? The plants are all gone, to places far away, where the wonderful "job creators" can pay slave wages, with no benefits.

The "can't find enough people for the jobs we're offering" is perhaps the most hilarious piece in the entire establishment propaganda manual. Those of us who know loved ones that have been actively searching for jobs the past few years know that this is simply not happening, anywhere, in the USA. On the contrary, most jobs have over 100 applications for them, even the crappiest ones.

McDonald's had a MILLION applicants for their newly created 50,000 job openings a few years back. Now, it is reported that McDonald's-considered by everyone as the basement level for job seekers-is hiring SIX out of every 100 applicants. Harvard lets in 7 out of 100. That ought to tell you something.

Your Republicrat fantasies would be laughable, if so many out there weren't suffering. I hope that the "new normal" doesn't hit your home. It's no fun.

You really need to educate your self. There has been record breaking sales in automotive. What is automotive you ask? I'll help you a bit. Believe it or not there are thousands of parts that go in each car built. The OEM's (That is GM, Ford, Toyota, Honda, etc.) don't make all these components...really they don't little libtard. So we build these things called Factories and they make things like Radios, Tires, Drivetrain Systems, Transmissions, Interiors, etc. Then you put them on things called Trucks, Planes, and Containers (These go on big boats...oh) These parts are all shipped to the OEM's and they assemble cars and trucks from them. Just so you know little tard we actually export to China, Korea, Japan, Russia, Spain, Italy. So....again you are 100% wrong again, the jobs are there and we ship over seas every single day and we are still growing. You really need educate yourself more before you tray and talk about issue you have NO Clue about. Just so you know the "NEW" push in manufacturing is called "Localization" built at point of use. Where do you think the most cars are sold little one? I'll help you...That would be the USA and China. That is the end of manufacturing 101 for now.

How are unemployment rates calculated? ...by the number of people making claims.

So the reality is nothing has changed... few of those people denied actually went out and got jobs because of it.

This is a misleading statistic being portrayed as a success when all it means is that more people unable to find work are no longer receiving financial assistance.


It doesn't tell us whether people are finding jobs or just totally dropping out of the workforce.

Then look at the publication for the Winter, which is at the link you gave, and you will see a drastic difference in the bars for wages for the state and for the country. That is the first clue that there is an error in the graph. They should be tracking very closely. You can verify it by checking it yourself.

So, No, there is no hidden story about job growth at the expense of wages, there is no problem GOP model, and the GOP model does not, I repeat, does not depress the wages of working people.

The company I work for has grown by about at least 30% in total employment, we actually bought a company in Atlanta and are incorporating them, while allowing them to stay themselves, just having them do things our way is the main goal, I am not including this in that 30% growth either (that 30% growth is just the one I see, we actually have people working in closets now b/c we grew so fast), and they are hiring even more for the Atlanta "location" now. This after we bought a company in Texas, and also one all the way over in the UK. We have so many new faces that I feel like I don't know anyone anymore,,, I've been there quite a while and hope to be there for more. It's losing the family feel and feels so much more corporate now though..

There are two large breweries who are both setting up shop in the area. Sierra Nevada and New Belgium are both setting up shop for their eastern operations here.

There's more going on than just that, but, just an example I could give you folks.

Anyone saying there isn't opportunity here, well, I dunno. That said, wages are low comparative to the cost of living. Wish that would even out a little.

Ashe Vegas is a dippy idiot shithole of, I dunno, liberal/progressive crap?.. I don't know b/c I don't like either extreme, but the progressive idiots piss me off more than conservatives outside of town around here do. But, as soon as you get 10 miles down the road in any direction, things even out and you actually have normal people who work and have families. And not trust fund trendies like you see in town.


Overall, it's the best I've seen it, but, that is my location, and my experience. YMMV.

Re: GOP takes full control of NC.....and unemployment rates fall off the table......UPDATED: NC Teacher minimum pay to be increased 14%
The solution to Bad Unemployment Numbers is easy...

...Just quit counting...

As Crime Boss Tweed would have to say,

"It's not the numbers, it's the counters"

"Count them again, use proper counters this time"

See how easy that is, just ask any Malignant Psychopath?

Sorry to much thread to read, however NC is a great place to live and work, I've never had an issue finding a job, people are fleeing here from other states for the jobs and weather!
Especially the Yankees for [email protected] sakes. angry2

To those who said they left NC and wouldn't come back... We'll good riddance!
