Study: 62% Of Americans Looking For Jobs Shouldn't Have To
By Ernesto McRobotface
WASHINGTON—According to a new study released Tuesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 62 percent of Americans should be able to find work the moment they give in their job application. "If you've never worked before, it's hard to know whether you're qualified for a job," said the study's lead author, J.D. Russell, who noted that, for many, the best opportunities for employment are not finding a job and then finding a job, but hiring a person who is already employed. "If you've never worked before, it's hard to know whether you're qualified for a job, and then finding a job, too." The study comes on the heels of another study that found that, in the United States, only 10 percent of the country's unemployed work in their jobs.
