The employment situation in the
United States is much worse than even the dismal numbers from
last week’s jobless report would indicate. The nation is facing a
full-blown employment crisis and
policy makers are not responding with anything like the sense of
urgency that is needed....
Charles McMillion, an expert on
employment, says “Over the past three months, 1,155,000
unemployed people dropped out of the active labor force and were not
counted as unemployed..
We’ve got more and more people in our working-age population and fewer
and fewer jobs to go around.
Mr. McMillion tells us that there are now 3.4 million fewer
private-sector jobs in the U.S. than there
were a decade ago. In the last 10 years, we’ve seen the worst job
creation record since 1928 to 1938.
We’re not heading toward the danger zone. We’re there. The U.S. will
not remain a stable society if
this great employment crisis is not addressed head-on - and soon. You
cannot allow joblessness on
this scale to fester. It’s wrong, and the blowback will be as
destructive and intolerable as it is inevitable.
If we were to lose, say 60
House seats and a dozen senate seats, would that wake Obama up?
What is he waiting for? Permission from McConnell and
I know - hire Bill Clinton as "Jobs Czar."
Or would he cast too long a shadow?
