If you have been wondering what the current status of employment is, This chart is from Bureau of labor statistics website
The employment statistics site seems they do a bit of profiling but it’s not quite in a bad way. These labor and employment statistics are more in a way that is informative. The employment statistics just simply states facts.
It is not like the site is made by Your local “Insert what ever you here “. It was made by the state.
there does seem to be a greater number of people on unemployment now. But at the same time, the women over 20 seem to be holding strong at keeping employed or at least off of government help and or welfare.
While the men on on welfare seems to have slightly increased a bit.
Although the chart shows that between the two genders we have an over all decrease in unemployment for the year time period. Guys, it looks like the women are holding up the performance for us all. And just as they would be upset with their performance if it was the other way around, I think we should be straightening up our act. (Hopefully this does not jinks my job).
Found some wages listed by the government, give you something to write down on your employment form when hunting for a job. You know the feild that says “Expected Wages”. and well, if the bos is hiring at less than what is on this list, you might want to consider your standards andyour own expectations. (I find if they start less, they will not be much good later).
Here are the employment statistics for 2009.
Typical Wages for 2009. (ok I say typical because it’s what it seems to me. Don’t use that though. because it isn’t quite right)
By all statistics, I am kind of seeing Houston and Texas as being the lowest pay rate. Cost of living by state. Not an official site but what I found real quick.
The better you know about your current pay rate and employment status and the average pay rate and employment statistics, the better you have a chance of achieving the wage or salary and life you want for yourself.
Remember, if it isn’t fun. It isn’t worth doing.
