Who’s hiring?

July 18, 2010

My husband says I’m too hard on the unemployed. I reminded him that I write only about one specific category: those who collect funds, are able-bodied and able-minded and do not even look for a job. I don’t know how many times I need to repeat that clarification.

He thinks I know a disproportionate number in that category. I don’t think I do. The system provides a disincentive to getting a job is part of my point.

He is a lawyer. Of course he doesn’t know many people in that category.

AOL posted the Top 10 Companies Hiring Now. I took a look, and a range of jobs are available. All kinds at all kinds of companies.

Maybe in your area.

  • Wells Fargo
  • Waste Management (shipping, skilled labor & others as well as what you think)
  • Amazon.com
  • CVS/Caremark
  • Dollar General
  • Capital One
  • Quest Diagnostics (including customer service, admin, accounting)
  • Clearwire (broadband internet service)
  • H&R Block (all kinds of jobs)
  • Collaberra (tech)

The point is that some good companies are still hiring. If you’re still looking.
