Awesome post by Apple on how many jobs they have created in the United States! I loved this graphic but click through for a few other stats.
The biggest issue on job creation isn't that there aren't enough open jobs, it's that the broader skill base in the country doesn't fit the kind of jobs that are being created. If someone could learn to program half decently, they would have a job in about two seconds. Granted, programming isn't for everyone, but it's just one example where demand is greatly outpacing supply.
