Red White & Blue Hens

College students in Delaware who think right is right, and left is wrong. We study hard, party hard, and play hardball.

Job market looks good for us college kids

From Reuters:

U.S. college graduates are facing the best job market since 2001, with business, computer, engineering, education and health care grads in highest demand, a report by an employment consulting firm showed on Monday.

"We are approaching full employment and some employers are already dreaming up perks to attract the best talent," said John Challenger, chief executive of Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

In its annual outlook of entry-level jobs, Challenger, Gray & Christmas said strong job growth and falling unemployment makes this spring the hottest job market for America's 1.4 million college graduates since the dot-com collapse in 2001.

The firm pointed to a survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers which showed employers plan to hire 14.5 percent more new college graduates than a year ago.

The survey also found higher starting salaries this year. Graduates with economic or finance degrees will see the biggest gain with starting salaries up 11 percent to $45,191, while accounting salaries are up 6.2 percent, business management salaries up 3.9 percent and pay for civil engineers 4.3 percent higher.

Boy am I glad I am graduating this year

Illegal Aliens= 12 Million

Some interesting statistics from the article:

Of those living illegally in the US :
-they account for 1 in 20 people in our workforce
-since the year 2000, approximately 850,000 come here each year
-7.2 million of them are undocumented workers-- making up roughly 5% of our workforce

Some business owners argue that our economy would collapse if they had to do without these immigrant's cheap labor. Obviously they are willing to work for much less than the average American would (AND without benefits nonetheless), but we have to draw the line somewhere. I think cracking down on illegal immigration would HELP our economy. Just think about how much of the taxpayer's money goes towards incarcerating them and providing them (free) medical care.

Legal immigration is fine by me. I just find it ridiculous that we continuously allow these outsiders to mooch off of our goverment.

Another state to use their right to ban most Abortions

Mississippi's Haley Barbour says that he would likely sign a bill to ban most abortions in the state if it's approved by lawmakers. The bill has bipartisan support in a state with only one abortion clinic (located in Jackson) and a 24-hr waiting period. Also, minors must have the consent of both parents in order to perform infanticide. [More...] (h/t MSU Esquire and SmashLeftWingScum)

And in other news.. it seems that Molly Saves the Day has published a how-to manual for women in South Dakota that seek to have illegal abortions. Disgusting. (h/t SaveTheGOP)
