Yep - the problem lies in Business - Business GREED. Offshoring to sweatshops/slaveshops and freely polluting the world bypassing or ignoring regulations. Pushing fossil fuel insanity instead of embracing clean tech power transportation and industry operations. All for the all mighty dollar to go to those who have too much already. In an insane dive down the toilet for all life on the planet.

If the man can pretty much have his own hearing then I do not see why this information can not be given to the same group of people.

Well - Hell GF - putting out information to the public might derail Him. We just couldn't have that now could we? I mean the public at large might take notice. Then what? Direct Democracy might break out over such things. Then where would the Greedy Assholes be?


Heh Heh

Never Mind.

Then they might have to admit that they are just intentionally, willfully, screwing the people because they can.

Good article on what's been understood anecdotally. Thanks for posting.

If businesses won't hire and increase wages, we ought to consider state businesses and socialism, gets people working on organic local farms, local infrastructure, high speed rail.

this mostly has to do with tech jobs of which they are trying to repress wages and the big tech companies have been caught colluding to prevent wage increases. yes these tech companies are not the progressive benevolent entities they portray themselves as but we do need more civil engineers cause our infrastructure is in tatters.

being an engineering major i can tell you straight up. if you graduate with a degree in an engineering field you will get a job i can't speak for the other fields. but engineers often have the combined knowledge of science, technology, math, and engineering plus the implementation of the skills. so for example really a chemist can tell you how a reaction occurs perhaps demonstrate it, but a chemical engineer can use that reaction to harden concrete faster/slower for example but in order to do so they must know how the reaction occurs. do you see what i mean? this gives engineers a wide range of options for jobs in a variety of job fields outside of your major.

You are majoring in it. Talk to me after you have acquired the job and been in the field for a good 5 years.
