The economy is finally looking up!:
Hiring by the U.S. Census Bureau is expected to spike May’s job figures dramatically.

Economist Mark Zandi of Moody’s.com projects the economy will add 575,000 jobs in May, while the Economic Policy Institute’s (EPI) rough projection is for 560,000 jobs.
575,000 new jobs in one month!

But wait:
Those jobs are temporary ones that will disappear as the Census completes the process of collecting data from people who did not mail in their forms.
Uh, those jobs are only temporary. It won't make the numbers for the following months look all that swell, now will it.

Almost 600,000 temporary jobs at what, $10.00 per hour? Created just because there are that many lazy assholes who couldn't or wouldn't find 10 fucking minutes to fill out a few questions on a gawdamn form?

Actually, the wages for Census workers come out at $19.50/hr.
