Survival & Your Money–What About the Holiday Job Market?

            According to recent statistics, the total civilian labor force is made up of 153.9 million people.  The government says the unemployment rate is currently 10.2%.  It’s the highest since 1983 with 15.7 million people out of work.


A recent New York Times article said the real unemployment figure could actually be 17.5%, and I think we all know these numbers could go higher.  Has it affected you yet?


            Those of us into survival preparedness aren’t surprised by such statistics.  Part of the survival mindset is adaptability.  How resourceful are you at making do when things are tough?  How versatile are your job skills?  One day that adaptability and versatility will be a real asset as you barter your services as well as possessions.


            For right now, if you’re in need of part-time work, you may be missing opportunities you weren’t aware of.  The holiday season is usually a good time for brick and mortar retail stores, like Toys R’Us, Kohl’s and Macy’s.  Snagajob matches these companies with temporary workers.

  1. Its certainly effecting those graduating from university and college, with most even not being able to get a basic job down at restaurants or bars, that’s just going to push the rates higher and higher, and they will still climb during recover I believe.

  2. I hear you. Things are bleak, I know. I figure by mentioning SnagAJob, anybody looking for work will have one more resource at their disposal at a time when they need all the leads they can get.
