Glenda McCormick, owner of Victor Valley Personnel Services in Victorville, said she's seen a slowdown. Still, she said her employment agency is placing workers, particularly in utilities and medical jobs, she said.
For most looking for employment, this is no time to get picky, McCormick said Friday by phone.
"Take anything you can get," she said.

Victor Valley Personnel Services owner, Glenda McCormick, says the older worker staying longer is not all that new and a couple of factors contribute to the older worker staying around longer.
"Americans are not the best at planning for retirement and in many cases when it rolls around older workers don't have the means," McCormick said. "The other thing is, they don't want to retire."
She pointed out that the older generation is healthier and more energetic than previous generations at retirement age and they're not ready to pack it in just yet.
The study pointed out that some boomers are finding that retirement can cause depression, loneliness and a feeling of not being part of the real world anymore.
"Older workers may have left their life long career but may work at smaller paying jobs for something to supplement any retirement income and are in competition with younger workers," McCormick said. "The older worker will probably get hired over the younger because they tend to think more and the older worker is better educated."
Both Lovingood and McCormick said that employers tell them many younger workers are not as dependable and may not have the work ethics of an older worker.
McCormick pointed out the younger worker can't seem to get by without a computer to look for all the answers.
"The older worker will use his mind more and think about something for an answer," McCormick said.

The $40 an hour fee, while it may seem exorbitant, is a reasonable fee for a transcriber, said Glenda McCormick, owner of Victor Valley Personnel Services.

In the High Desert, this is definitely the case, according to Glenda McCormick, owner of Victor Valley Personnel Services in Victorville.Although she said her company only places English speakers who are legally permitted to work in the country, she can still cite many instances of contractors taking advantage of the large numbers of Latino immigrants and illegals.
"The influx of Latinos coming into this community, whatever their status, is definitely holding wages down," she said, "especially in factories, manufacturing and production-type industries, as well as unskilled janitorial or unskilled construction jobs."
But the problems with contractors and wages cut both ways.
With no workers' compensation or liability insurance, and no legal recourse available to them, McCormick said, illegals have no protection whatsoever from unscrupulous contractors who have been known to grossly underpay them or bilk them of their pay entirely.
Those contractors that can get away with underpaying, she said, will make life much tougher for legal workers in the same jobs who aren't willing to be underpaid but are desperate for the work.
Remedies for workers
McCormick said she believes in immigration, but that people should arrive with a skill, ready to contribute to the work force.Many Latino immigrants and illegals are hard workers, she said, but most arrive unskilled.

Glenda McCormick, director of Victor Valley Personnel Services, believes one governmental policy that prevents people from finding work and affects unemployment rates is welfare. The government requires welfare recipients to provide proof that that they are looking for a job to keep their benefits. This "proof," McCormick said, can come in the form of a business card from an employment agency.
McCormick said she still believes that there is a vast majority of people who are seriously looking for work, despite the lack of full-time, good paying positions.
"A lot of people who come in here just want to work," McCormick said.
