my previous challenge to him.
Newt should know better than everyone that 80% of jobs are not found on the internet or newspaper ads; they are found by networking. The old adage about "It's all about who you know" is repeated over and over in job search articles, by career coaches and anyone giving advice to the unemployed on the internet.
So, I once again challenge Newt to put his words into action. What, specifically, is Newt going to do to get people back to work?
The bottom line is that he won't. And his rhetoric is great for applause, but fails to recognize simple math and facts.
Fact #1: There are more unemployed people than there are open positions. If there are 8 million people unemployed and only 200,000 jobs were created last quarter, that means 7.8 million people would NOT find a job. It's like having 5 pairs of shoes for 10 people; 5 people will NOT be wearing shoes.
Fact #2: This is not an Obama problem, this is a business community problem. The Republicans are complaining that taxes are too high and therefore there is no money to hire. First, that's not true because the Dow is now about 12,000, higher than ever under Bush 2. Businesses are reported to have a LOT of cash-on-hand.
Newt, if you're genuine and serious about getting people back to work, then start showing it. Maybe you will garner more votes by showing the voters your hands-on approach to helping the unemployed land suitable jobs. If you're not genuine, I'll just keep calling you out on it.
