So DISH is the only bad job on the planet? There are no other places where people could "do some time" in a job where they are overworked, underappreciated, overstressed and underpaid? Really? There are a lot of people making the best of the job they have. And yes, putting a year or two at a job you hate (if the hiring manager lets you in the door) is better than joining the 99 week unemployed and getting no benefits population (which with unemployment cutbacks is less than 99 weeks in many states). The facts are that there are people to take those unwanted jobs. Perhaps they would be happier somewhere else but we're not in a position as a nation to have everyone in their dream job getting paid for what they love to do. We're in a position as a nation where many are simply looking to get paid for something they can tolerate - for a while. Unfortunately there is also a lot of unfilled jobs that people don't want to do ... not enough to completely wipe out unemployment but enough to notice when one is looking at the problem as a whole.
