Mayor @MikeBloomberg a Good Candidate for ‘Jobs Czar’ When Term Ends

Theme:– Operation J.U.M.P. For Jobs, Justice & Unsung Dreams

The rumors are swirling about Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s next stop after leaving office. It looks like a well-earned vacation is in the works. He probably hasn’t been able to really kick-back over the past 12 years. Some see a return to the company he founded. But Bloomberg’s a good candidate for ‘Jobs Czar.’

With his business background and public service, he could hit the ground running. He’d be a role model for those who’re still dealing with a tough job market. The recent Jobs Report showed a jump in new payroll hires. However, the labor participation rate’s at an all-time low. A major concern is the MIA jobless.

Bloomberg doesn’t have to worry about his next job. He can go from employed to unemployed, then back to being employed in a flash. While the average Jane or Joe has got to hang on for dear life. It’s almost as if there’s a job market jet-stream that benefits some and job market rip currents that pulls-down others.

Operation J.U.M.P. is more like a jet-stream than rip currents. It’s facilitating a job market pipeline and business dream-track for those reinventing themselves. This is not a cake-walk and is seen as a calling. Operation J.U.M.P. stands to be a model for next gen pink-collar workers in the social-change revolution.

Some NY media are reporting that Bloomberg is likely to be less visible. He has lots of options regarding his other philanthropic and social justice interests. There’re even reports that he might carry over some mayoral staff to his new job. Whatever he decides, it’s sure to leave a mark whether people like it or not.

Footnote: Operation J.U.M.P. works more like a jet-stream than rip currents. It’s about providing emotional, financial and social lift for career/business goals to fly again even higher with “jump-stream” force.

Sean Hannity Might Have Played Russian-Roulette with Obamacare Worker

The blame game continues in Washington. Some are pointing fingers after the shutdown. Others are saying the Healthcare.gov site has been a debacle. Hearings on Capitol Hill try to get to the bottom of it. Meanwhile back at the ranch, Sean Hannity might have played Russian-Roulette with Obamacare worker.

Reports are that he interviewed a customer service rep on his radio show. Not sure if the purpose was legit beyond “inquiring minds” but the Atlantic Wire writes that the worker was fired the next day. A mother of two, she provided information about the rollout of Obamacare and put her job on the cutting block.

Hannity reportedly offered to pay her yearly salary. He also said it would be a gift which according to his accountant made it tax free. The woman was overjoyed for sure. Fired and then getting a year’s pay in a matter of days. But that’s not the case for others. There’re about 5 million who’ve gone under the radar.

They are known as discouraged or marginally attached workers. The number keeps growing as the unemployment rate dips. That is the often overlooked stat in the Jobs Report. Operation J.U.M.P. sure hopes to connect with them similar to how Hannity served his caller (of-course, after getting her fired).

Some say Hannity was trying to get a scoop on Obamacare. It’s back in the news since the Shutdown is almost old news. After going from insult to injury, he apologized and made amends. But for the POW (prisoners of work-loss) or workforce MIA, let’s hope other big-money moves can come thru for them too.

Footnote: Operation J.U.M.P. is about connecting resources to the long-term jobless in a way similar to how a Church provides resources to those “sick and shut-in.”
