Warren Buffett is pushing Burger King out of America

I blame Warren Buffett for destroying American jobs. The big hubbub that has been taking place with Burger King and with it possibly moving to Canada originally started with none other than Berkshire Hathaway who is owned by Warren Buffett. I blame him for starting this nightmare first of all. Secondly, I blame him for pulling the jobs from America and giving them to others over seas.

The economy here in the United States is bad enough and now Buffett has done this damage to business and chosen to push more of them out. My question is why? For someone who supposedly believed in American companies there sure is a funny way of showing it. Perhaps Warren Buffett needs to put his money where his mouth is invest in small business owners that are attempting to build their businesses and hire employees or 2) provide a way for those in communities with high unemployment.

Pay careful attention to job ad differences

Because of the economy and persons who have medical issues there is a high need for virtual work now than ever before. The one issue that has taken place for many years prior is now beginning once again and this time it is actually gotten more intense; job scams. How this is happening is in the way job advertisements are being worded as they are becoming more advanced than ever before.

To someone aware of virtual work, also known as (aka) remote work they would be informed of what to look for when job seeking but to a person who is just beginning to job seek this can become quite frustrating very fast especially now that keywords are constantly changing and being used for new terms.

A prime example when job seeking is finding the phrase “Work at Home” written into a job advertisement discussing how that job can earn you $300 to $500 a week for example. In actuality that advertisement is not virtual employment it is a business opportunity in which whomever wants to get involved could very likely go through the following:
1 – pay to get involved with the company whether once or monthly
2 – not be paid during training period
3 – be required to pay for specific material other than their computer equipment
4 – and the list can continue…

At any rate, the fact of the matter the above phrase mentioned is something to be quite cautious of because it is frequently used by many business owners and it is taken for granted as these business owners believe they can steal money and bring others into their business rather than hire employees like true small business owners have been doing and wanting to do for rebuilding this economy.

Grant it, some people like the idea of running their own business but not all job seekers favor the idea of being pulled into a business opportunity especially for the fact they are not given the truth when reading the job advertisement. My best suggestion is to be careful when reading the documentation and ask questions if you are not sure. Never pay to get hired even if that amount is promised back to you – you are entering into a business opportunity and it is just not worth the headache.

Who gets most benefit for affordable health care act?

Who gets most benefit for affordable health care act?.

There are so many issues still with this governmental health care act taking place and the numbers are not even coming close to what President Obama wants yet he still insists on pushing political matters.

Has anyone in the White House Administration taken the time to weigh the checks and balances of who this will help in comparison to who this will actually cause more harm to and in the end what impact it will do to the economy?
