@dyslexia,
I think The Onion has it correct...

Labor Dept: Available Labor Rate Increases To 10.2%


Quote:
WASHINGTON"In what is being touted by the Labor Department as extremely positive news, the nation's available labor rate has reached double digits for the first time in 26 years, bringing the total number of potentially employable Americans to an impressive 15.7 million.

@parados,
Sounds like something I might get from one of my prime news sources. ironictimes.com. I recommend it. The news, twisted though it is, often beats the mainstream media by three to four days.

Start a topic and I will contribute interesting tidbits as they come out. Ironic Times is published on Monday.

@cicerone imposter,
...but it meant they were seriously considering them for the final decision...as in the 'home stretch' , where they'll check references (for thorough employers that do) and such.
