Some clues to the jobless recovery...and why there is a gap between rich and poor. 13.9 million people adrift.

If you can make it to the end of this very informative article, don't read it while eating. You will find that "workers without college degrees find well-paying jobs scarce in the modern U.S. economy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says there are 25.3million Americans over age 25 without high-school diplomas: Only 9.8 million, or less than 40% of them, were working in June. About 1.6 million said they were looking for work; the rest weren't even looking." This is one of the saddest things I have read recently. Perhaps prayer will help.
