Thousands of people applied for 200 new jobs at Target over the last three days in Northeast Albuquerque.
KOAT Action 7 News went to Target’s job fair at the Marriott Uptown every day and continued to find lines snaking around the building.
Candidates only have a one in 35 chance in getting a job…
Presumably these are mostly minimum wage jobs. Yet people are desperate for them.
The story is the same in neighboring Arizona. Tempe-based US Airways “received more than 16,500 applications for 450 flight attendant positions.” That rounds off to 37 applicants for each opening.
Not to worry. The media establishment that put and keeps Obama in power tells us that the economy has been recovering. Imagine how many job applicants there would be if it weren’t.
Maybe if Obama gouges employers some more with further punitive taxes on “the rich,” they will hire people they can no longer afford to employ. Crazy as that may sound to us little people, it appears to be the jobs strategy of the liberal masterminds who rule us.
