Great! Job training for non-existent jobs...throwing money away, training good people to work, be productive, take care of their families...but wait...job training for jobs that have been outsourced to other countries so fat cats here can pay pennies on the dollar for work done overseas as the bottom line makes fat cats wealthier and investors happy with growing dividends? Training is great, but where will the jobs be when these folks have skills? Obama is trying to fix this! OBAMA 11/6/2012
