Potter County Jobless Rate Declines To 8.7%

Potter County Jobless Rate Declines To 8.7%

chartbetterPotter County saw a considerable drop in its unemployment rate during November, while most other counties in the region had little change. 

Potter’s seasonably adjusted jobless rate fell to 8.7 percent, down from 9.2 percent the previous month. Cameron County edged back up to 11.1 percent from the 10.9 percent jobless rate in October. McKean County’s rate remained steady at 8 percent. 

Pennsylvania Center for Workforce Information officials cautioned that these statistics reflect the percentage of adults who are collecting unemployment compensation (UC), one condition of which is that they are supposed to be “actively looking for work.” 

The figures do not take into account those whose UC benefits ran out, nor those who are working in part-time positions or finding other sources of income. Pennsylvania’s jobless rate was 7.8 in November, as was the national rate.

Ok drill baby drill. Where do I get into one of those good paying jobs? I know I am a newbie and have little experience in the industry but I just can't seem to get started. You hear loads of rumors out there like they are having problems with finding people who want to work and can pass a drug test. I know I certainly can do both but just cannot get my foot in the door.

First of all, nearly every drilling company requires experience (which I dont understand when they wont give you a chance). Then if you get hired you will work maybe 3 months (at most) before they shit can you and keep all their guys that came with them (illegal immigrants). Then they will deny your unemployment after working all the hours and doing whatever job they ask you to do. So you can make your own decision. But if you are looking for steady work, its not in the drilling industry. About the time you are due to get your benefits you are all done. They need that money. And believe me, they say its hard work and its not by any means a hard job. Drillers (other than union workers) are pretty much the laziest ball babies ive ever met in my life. They say "we work 12 hour days". Well boo hoo! Thats just another day as far as im concerned. And their idea of work is throw a length of bit on and go sit in the trailer for anywhere from half an hour to 4 hours (depending on how the ground is) then go out, throw another length on (15 minute job) then go back to the trailer for another hour or so.

What is depressing is having a President who hates America and Capitalism. Who will do everything he can do to over load the system with Government Dependants, burdensome regulations, and high taxes for all. Nothing this president has done will help the economy. In fact he wants to make it worse so he can blame Capitalism and usher in his socialist utopia. We will be a third world country before he is finished with us.
