Why in the world are you comparing the formatted display dates instead
of the numeric dates set by strtotime?

if (!strtoftime($jobs_effective_start) >= strtotime(WSOFFBEGIN))

will do what you want.

Also -- why not just set WSOFFBEGIN to the converted date value
instead of converting it each time you use it? (Assuming that's a
defined constant.)


or whatever.

If you need both forms (string and numeric) define two constants, one
dependent on the other.
