Well thank you MacDaddy! You truly honor me with your triple-threat response to my poor humble post.

But truth be told, as a disabled retiree, your opinion of the current economic climate doesn't much count as you are no longer a producer in the this society.

I'm more interested in the opinion of the millions of young people out there, struggling to find a good paying job so that they can pay off their tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt and/or start building towards a successful future. With the number of jobs growing, along with household income, and employers every day announcing new and inventive ways to attract workers, their future is finally looking bright!
