Question: Who's failed economic policies as President have caused 20% of all American Workers to lose their jobs in the last 5 years?
And now for my third and best question: Who will those 20% be voting for in the mid-term elections this year? Will they continue voting for the party of the President like a bunch of battered wives returning to their abuser, or will the finally wise up?
Isn't it something that 20% of American's lose their jobs in the last 5 years, and we keep hearing we need to bring in more immigrants or legalize the CRIMINAL ILLEGAL ALIENS already here because Big Corporations can't find qualified workers?
Every single thing that's happening in our economy is being masterminded by big corporations who fire American Workers to drive up their profits on one hand, and bolstered by in incompetent, America-hating "President" who seeks to finish transforming America into a third-world despot dictatorship on the other hand.
This is all about screwing AMERICAN WORKERS and driving down wages in America. When Government and Big Business collaborate together like they are, it's called FASCISM. Before any of you argue with me, go look up the damn' word FASCISM first. THAT is what we're living under folks.
And almost none of them were government bureaucrats or non-governmental organization (NGO) employees.
I don’t believe it’s that low.
Way higher and what’s left is temp positions.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Everything is great. You just don’t feel it.
Correct! In fact, Government has GROWN the last 5 years. While I haven’t looked at the actual stats, how much would you like to wager that the Federal and State Governments have hired more people than the private sector?
You're right, I don't. Funny how that works eh? While I feel incredibly fortunate to have maintained my own employment throughout this reign of terror called the Obama Administration, I know plenty of people who haven't and off the top of my head, it's more than 20% of the people I know who've lost their full-time, good paying w/benefits jobs.
A fair chunk of them haven't found full time work since and are working whatever part time jobs (3, in some cases one friend working 4 part time jobs) they can find.
I also don't believe for a second that our GDP grew at 4.25% last quarter either. There's lies, and there's damn' lies. Guess which one 4.25% GDP growth is?
OH yeah? Yeah?! Well you .... you .... you ..... ..... .....
How does that work?
How many are over 40?
Complete lives and all that.
Both of my sons were laid off, one even twice, in the past five years.
Thank God, and I mean thank God, both of them graduated to better jobs in a very short time.
I am one of those. My company laid me off January 2014. I am back in school changing fields. I do blame Obama for the lousy stagnation and I will be voting.
he ll apply for unemployment..he's 62 and really has little chance to do anything in his field of knowledge and skill....
here's a question for those that might know.....if his income drops significantly because of being laid off, will his SS which he'll claim in the future...is that going to be lower now?
So the selfish bastard don’t give reach around why am i not surprised
