Jobs aren't the problem it's the cost of commodities and basic survival items - food, water, oil, gas, electric, communications, housing, bank loans. They are busy robbing us blind yet we're so willing to work work work even harder to overpay these mega monopolies for inflated prices. Let's work less, let's have less jobs - let's just get rid of monopolies, then we can work less hours a week and still be able to meet those basic needs that are being pillaged from us. It's not jobs stupid - it's monopoly prices.
Corporations determine how many hours you will work by the prices they place on basic goods, and the amount they are willing to pay employees... Oil, electric, gas, water, communications, food, - your basic survival has been pre-constructed. You have no destiny anymore not the way things are going. It is the end of upward mobility. How many hours do you work to come up with what you have to shell out - for the 57 percent of Americans that make under $26,000 a year - your 40 hours don't even meet the basic survival needs. How you live your life if you are in this bracket / income caste - is working for someone else on a treadmill that never stops moving: well, unless you also want to stop eating or having a roof over your head or work even more hours at the jobs that are being outsourced in droves and paying less than ever to boot.
We need competition and fair markets that aren't rigged for multi-national billion dollar monopolies.
