Jobs Americans Won’t Take?
This little blurb stuck out as I sifted through the newspaper, the other day. Why should this be so:
Despite high unemployment in Connecticut, Census jobs are going begging.
The Hartford office of the U.S. Census Bureau is struggling to fill between 1,000 and 1,500 temporary jobs that pay $15 to $22.75 an hour.
More than 4,200 have applied for the jobs, but the census office needs to recruit more by April 27 because most will drop out or never show up for the jobs.
Are people becoming used to idleness and dependency, or is something else going on here?
