Wait a minute!

Aren't we always told that government can't create jobs?

Somebody better tell the government of Cedar City.

It's aboaut time Cedar City joined the 21st century. Jobs? Don't they have a lot of chicken and turkey processing factories in their area? So why should there be any unemployment with so much prosperity to share?

Specialized intellectual property education is not something that is marketable as a job qualification or industry standard. A country without industry is a wasted education.

Utah's unemployment is claimed to be 6% when we have hundreds of thousands wanting a job. Utah must count the unemployed on benefits the only ones looking for a job. What about the millions of underemployed, forced retirees who want a job, and part time workers who are seeking prosperity, happiness, and a better way of life?

Why doesn't Utah count the tens of thousands on welfare because they can't find a job? What percentage of the state is employed as welfare jobs? I think Utah is exaggerating its status lying to the rest of the country as a state of prosperity and at the same time have the highest rate of poverty as well. Jobs do not mean wealth or prosperity, jobs in Utah sustain poverty.
