Do you think people who are really looking for a job can find one in today’s economy?

“Yes. I believe there’s a lot of jobs out there. This area is so transient. There’s always jobs available.”

Cathy Battreal, Kempner

“It’s tough in this economy. But if you give it your all and have a little faith, it will work out.”

Janice Davis, Cove

“I don’t know. I am really kind of out of the system. I don’t have any idea how few or how many jobs are out there.”

Dennis Fullerton, Cove

“It’s tough. It’s really tough. A lot of people probably have to take a job that is less than their skill level. It’s hard. But that’s what’s out there.”

Tom Bogus, Harker Heights

“Yes. I’ve been in places where they say they are hiring in fast food, department stores and discount stores. There are jobs out there. I always see help wanted signs.”

Yolanda Segovia, Corpus Christi
