Unemployment by state tells the story. Having the stock market go up, while employment remains the worst it has been in 29 years should be setting off alarm bells, not celebrations.
The fact that Tata Tata enterprises is being wooed by Ohio but that of its 13000 workers in the USA only 1300 are American citizens should also be setting off warning bells. What this means is wages going down, not up.
At the same time, the self-dealing elite continues to pay itself bonuses – with those bonuses worth six times the total growth in the economy that same year! At the same time, 25 million families may face forceclosure and unemployment remains the highest in 29 years. Banker bonuses – the rest of the story
My focus remains jobs, jobs, jobs. I have NOT been distracted by the health care debate, or the Copenhagen conference, or a terrorist rich boy, who happened to be from Africa, who set his pants on fire.
