Politicians are so busy raking in the dough they really have not thought about the future much at all but what they do today WILL affect tomorrow. The decision to allow mass labor reduction has ensured the next generation is not able to contribute enough to sustain our aging population. This is very simple to understand:
You want the youth to demand better jobs and wages - so they can support you dumbass (no offense) but what will it take for your egos to get that their success is entwined with your survival?
We had a good thing. I don't want to see what I know will come: frail starving elderly suffering unable to sustain themselves. For the last thirty years we have seen stagflation and the reduction of good employment. This means our younger generations aren't making enough to contribute to the weight of the aging population. On top of this offshoring and loopholes enables our largest resource eating corporations to shirk their share of social responsibility.
What is going to happen now?... Really think about this because the youth also not having a foothold on their own lives won't be able to contribute to the care of their own parents either. Are we going to see mass starvation of our elderly? - YES. Republicans are absolutely salivating over putting the SSI taxpayer funds onto their trading floor. Because they really can't think about tomorrow. They can't see the bigger picture of what their very specific actions are going to cause. It's a game to them. People's lives are a game and mere objects to shift around and gamble with. They get that psychopathic glint in their eyes (you know the one Ajit Pai sees when he looks at himself with his proud smirk in the mirror).
They are so proud when they figure out how to cut workers and decrease wages and cut cut cut as if it is funny. But these actions effect real people, there is real suffering taking place in our country now - and we haven't seen how bad it will get. It will it will it will - mark my words as you step over that poor frail dying old wrinkled woman with her tattered hands on the subway. Maybe that will be you one day too. We know the future if this road continues it is up to pull this bus to a screeching halt back it over our current "Congress" and stop this evil. They are lying about our employment numbers just like they lied about everything else. The Swamp of Sadness is expanding. Younger generations need massive employment and wage increases if we are to sustain the massive Baby Boomer population. You see employment isn't about privilege and sucking it up butter cup to pay some dues nor is it about survival of the fittest - it's about contributing and participating in a greater contract to have a great country that has a good quality of life for all no matter what tragedy or hardship befalls our lives. Americans used to have eachothers's backs. Because we know that it could be anyone of us next. We never know what is going to happen, nor the hardships we won't see coming - they will come and we can't always plan or fix everything sometimes life just has a different idea.
And for those Baby Boomers who continue to scoff at this younger generations trouble with today's employers and just refuse to believe we aren't whiners or pansies when we try to get them to understand the employment - they are literally digging their own graves and terrible future. If their pension goes bankrupt or their ssi disappears or the banks fold - what will save you. There is no fallback. SSI hasn't dried up because of stupidity - it has dried up because of corporate greed. You can't get blood from a population of wage slaves to contribute like we used to.
