Jobs is the buzzword. President Barack Obama is urging Congress to pass the American Jobs Act, which he says would create jobs for millions of people, including construction workers. Also, you’ve got the Republic presidential debates. In every debate I’ve watched, the big questions for the 2012 hopefuls is “What will you do to create jobs?”

I wish I knew what the answer was. And I wish I knew whether President Obama’s jobs bill will put people back to work. At the very least, you need to have the capital to hire employees, and you also need to have the available work in order to hire new individuals. But from listening to some of the Republican candidates, it sounds as though it is more than this. Some say taxes are too high. Some say that “Obamacare” has scared businesses from bringing on new employees. I don’t own a business and I don’t manage employees, so I’m not sure what the answer is. However, many of our readers do.
