If you’re one of the many Americans who lost your job in the post-election layoff frenzy, or have been out of work thanks to President Obama’s jobless recovery, there’s good news for you. You can join one of the Obama administration’s jobs clubs. Now, you won’t make any money, but, by golly, you will feel better about the dismal situation you face.
Have you ever heard of the Obama administration’sOffice of Recovery for Auto Communities and Workers?
The obscure office on Thursday will join the Labor Department’s Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships in hosting a symposium on “the important role of job clubs and career ministries in getting Americans back to work.”
The Labor Department, in a news release issued the day after Obama’s election victory, said the symposium in Hales Corners, Wis., will highlight the work of local job clubs, including how they can be run effectively.
Job clubs and career ministries allow people who don’t have jobs to talk about jobs. They do not create jobs.
Who knows, maybe through one of these jobs clubs you can find out about a jobs fair run by someone like Rahm Emanuel. You won’t get a job at one of those either, or even a WalMart gift card, but that’s okay. You see, after waiting in line for hours you will be told how to apply for a job thousands of other job seekers are also applying for. Don’t you just love this Obama economy? It doesn’t matter if you can’t find a job, as long as you believe the ones you elect care and identify with you. Welcome to the economy so many of you voted for. Enjoy!
If you’re one of those people who lost a job thanks to the Obama economy and voted against him, I truly offer my sincerest condolences. I did all I could. Many of us did, but it wasn’t enough. Good luck.
