I've argued this point

For years now. Mostly in arguments regarding immigration. There are jobs out there... people just think they are above holding entry level positions.

Everyone uses the unemployment rate as an argument against immigrants holding jobs here but the truth is that when my state passed some of the most draconian immigration laws in the country a few years ago we had certain plants shut down for weeks (think poultry processing and the like), as well as farmers who had acres of crops rotting on the vine. Where were all the unemployed who needed those jobs being held by "greedy immigrants?" Sitting on their couches waiting on their government benefit checks.
