Help Wanted

As the unemployment rate here in Erie County creeps up toward ten percent, the Buffalo News is doing their best to keep people from panicking. An article in the Sunday edition pointed out that there are indeed jobs available for people with the proper qualifications. Check out this table, which accompanied the article:

So, three different kinds of teachers and police officers are all listed as desirable, available occupations. That’s great. But considering those are all state jobs, don’t you think it would be helpful if there were people paying into the tax rolls as well?

No wonder the economy in this state is such a wreck. The only jobs available are being paid for by a state government in a 17 billion dollar hole.

    The unemployment rate in Greenville County is the lowest in the Upstate, and its hovering near 10%. There’s a nearby county that’s something like 23%. Poor White Trash. But then, we don’t exactly have the plethora of state jobs like the Empire State does.

    Is this why my energy drink is going to cost $8.36 more per can with the new state tax structure?

    I think it’s because energy drinks are subject to a 200% “Xtreme” tax.
