Coming full circle, the current unemployment picture is actually much more complicated and unprecedented than any other time in post WWII US history. Bernanke and Geithner are not going out on a limb to promise a future of stable jobs. According to the most basic economic principles, they should have a very good idea the stage has been set for businesses to walk down the labor aisle with the same giddy glow as the first generation of Walmart (NYSE: WMT) shoppers. The cosmic irony is almost too much to handle.

One of the lessons I remember from my time at the Orange was that the current job markets arent like it was when my Grandparents worked, the phrase "job security" doesnt exist. You treat everyday you work as it were your last (like I currently do now).

That article sums up what I believe to be true for the US job market.

Those millions of lost jobs are never coming back. Nor will the future job losses, of which there will be plenty.

This move has been coming for a long time. It's not new, but it is just as problematic as ever. We will have to find a way to adjust.
