With several “warm up” years out of the way, it’s finally time for the Obama administration to do something about jobs:

President Barack Obama is calling 2014 “a year of action” for creating jobs and economic opportunities for American families.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the first step is for Congress to extend unemployment insurance for those without work.

The president also points to a new initiative to boost high-tech manufacturing and other steps he plans to announce next week to put people back to work.

Sounds like “Recovery Summer II: This time we mean it” is on the way. If you’re currently working it might be a good idea to pre-register for unemployment compensation now to beat the increased “year of action” induced rush later.
