Where the jobs are…

According to The BLS:
The latest Economics Daily article is available here: http://www.bls.gov/opub/ted/2016/retail-salespersons-and-cashiers-were-occupations-with-highest-employment-in-may-2015.htm. Highlights are below.

Retail salespersons and cashiers were occupations with highest employment in May 2015

03/31/2016

Retail salespersons (4.6 million) and cashiers (3.5 million) were the occupations with the highest employment in May 2015. Combined, these two occupations made up nearly 6 percent of total U.S. employment. Annual mean wages were $26,340 for retail salespersons and $20,990 for cashiers. Office and administrative support was the largest occupational group, making up nearly 16 percent of total U.S. employment. Annual mean wages for workers in this group were $36,330.

It looks like Youth may have a shot at derailing the atrocious youth unemployment number! Let’s start filling out those retail and office administration applications.

To greater success

The Electoral College…Its not just about the Popular Vote

american flag

If you are interested in knowing what a caucus is…read the article on this blog “What the heck is a Caucus…?” and read the information on the link here:

http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/about.html

While a Presidential Candidate may win the popular (majority of people) vote, He/She MUST have a certain number of delegate votes from the participating states and some districts in the union (most recently, DC The District of Columbia-albeit is not a state, has 3 delegate votes that must be counted). As such, if a candidate falls short of securing the desired number of delegates~ He/She will not win the election.

This is very important to understand. It is likened to the lesson learned when Al Gore ran against George W. Bush some years ago. Gore secured the popular vote but failed to secure the majority votes in the electoral college. He lost the election, yet the majority of people in the country voted for him.

Many were horrified and disappointed, yet they failed to understand the election process.

The Profound Beauty of Life

HALLELUJAH

You and I, an album culled from Jeff Buckley's first demos for Columbia Records, will be released in March.

You and I, an album culled from Jeff Buckley’s first demos for Columbia Records, will be released in March.

There is something deeply inspirational about this song performed by Jeff Buckley.
“There was a time you let me know…and every breath we drew was Hallelujah…”

To a better humanity…No more broken Hallelujahs,

All my best,
