Anyone who's been hitting the pavement, searching for a new gig in the last oh, I'd say nine months or so, knows what this ad is talking about (you probably wanna click to enlarge that bad boy).
What a state of affairs right now.
I'm not pretending to have the answer.
But if I had a dollar for every time I saw an ad offering something like $12/hr for a full time, non-entry level, professional position, I'd probably be able to single-handedly stimulate this economy back into being the well oiled machine it ought to be.
Put it this way, when employers have to explicitly say "with benefits" in a classified ad, you know there's a problem.
Anyways, totally not Steelers related at all.
