“Jobs News Even Worse Than We Thought” by Paul Craig Roberts resonates with what I’m seeing. Our politicians, as they support and actively enable the exporting of thousands of jobs overseas while allowing millions of people to take lower-paying jobs, keep talking about all the great high-end jobs that are being created, thanks to hefty government spending. The reality is that jobs across the spectrum are being lost or salaries are driven down. Is anybody watching out for America, and for the future of your children?
The Church’s advice to prepare for the future, be frugal, stay out of debt, and get all the education you can makes more sense than ever.
Of course, you all know that there’s really no problem – all these jobs being given to others are jobs that US citizens just don’t want and won’t take, as President Bush has helpfully explained. Hey, all you engineers, what’s your problem? Why don’t you want a real engineering job for $7 an hour? And you construction workers, if you all weren’t so lazy those $12-a-day jobs could be yours!
