    But I thought we needed illegals, because Americans according to barack are too "soft". Crazy to think that Americans are willing to work when a job is opened up. Let's move 15-20 million illegals out of the country and that should solve most of our unemployment issues. We'll still have underemployment, but, at least they're working. Much better than having 50% of our country living off of the other 50%.

    This is news? Particularly the part about unwanted jobs? How many of us, when young adults, took "unwanted jobs" to gain experience, or "pay your dues", going up through the ranks? In this economy, people of all ages feel fortunate to have and hold onto "unwanted" jobs, making that portion of this particular Pew study almost irrelevant, in my opinion.

    Obama has spent too much time promising the young people good jobs when they never learned to work for anything.
