Where are the jobs? Olly olly, oxen free, free free!
Now, all I know is what I read on the Internet, and all I see, other than politicians' body parts, is the four letter word JOBS! Where are the jobs? Who took the jobs? Jobs are gone; we need jobs. Now, all signs point in one direction -- our President and his employees. I have seen the recent studies saying that our President and his administration are to blame.
Now, I have been following this President's every move very closely -- mainly because he was labeled a socialist very early in the game, which is odd because labeled as such, you'd think getting folk's jobs would be at the top of his list to help that redistribution of wealth thing along.
I think it is odd that the two biggest issues on our country's lips are: jobs and immigration...
Let me attempt to approach this scientifically. Although I don't claim to have that skill, after-all, I am a Democrat that way.
Here's an experiment, and you can try this at home, AND it's totally FREE; best four letter word in English. The only thing it will cost you is your time. Which, if you are out of work, you have plenty of.
So, call up your bank, if you still have one. They don't allow folks to be friends with them if you don't give them something... MONEY. Call them, however don't call your local bank, call the customer service 800 number with a problem. 1-800-555-1212... (push a bunch of buttons) (wait ten minutes) and you're talking to someone.... Then ask: where am I calling? Bank says: India...
Now, try calling EFAX (because I have called this company) or call any large corporate business and ask: where am I calling? Corporate business: (insert foreign country).
I have talked to more companies' customer supports lately, and all of them are based in ANOTHER country.
Now, experiment #2.
Go to a Home Depot or a nursery (plants), a field being harvested, or to a hotel/motel, and notice who has the jobs -- most likely immigrants. Now, I am not saying that is wrong, just a fact that most Americans won't take jobs like this. Odd when you think that this is how our country was built.
So my hypothesis is: The real reason jobs are at an all time low is because corporate America is outsourcing the jobs and Americans are losing jobs to foreigners.
Now, I like to give my readers a little bit of common cents... Which is about all we can afford right now.
So here's, "The Plan": Stop outsourcing and give the jobs to Americans. Treat it like the unions; union members get the jobs first, and afterwards all others. And if Americans took all the jobs first -- field work, day labors, maid work" all the jobs that seem to have become immigrant jobs, -- we would kill two birds [jobs and immigration] with one stone. It's pretty rare that folks would move somewhere where there are no jobs.
