"It is about time that working people start to get some better opportunities. I can remember when it was hard to get any kind of an interview. Now I am seeing more and more opportunities and this is a good sign. I just hope the good times continue. It is always wonderful to have a good job with strong pay and benefits and security. It is never good when you are struggling to find a job," said Laura Jenson.
