American Workers Need Freedom to Buy Jobs

Message Steve Eckardt
Thank God every politician is for jobs.
Of course not a massive public works program. Jobs for works is unAmerican.
What we need is more freedom. What we need is to make the rich richer.
After all, the government gave the bankers trillions - trillions! - and that obviously wasn't enough.
Time to do something that really works:  why not let  workers PAY to have a job?
After all, billion-dollar corporations selflessly shell out mountains of cash for machinery and materials, not to mention wages and benefits.
Why shouldn't workers pay to be there? Why should corporations have to pay workers when it costs them - the job creators - money? After all, everybody wants a job, plus a good resume entry. Why not free workers to pay for one??
Just turn the minimum wage into the minimum workers pay to be employed.
And let free market competition drive up the payments depending on how desirable the jobs are.
Jobs will pour into America.
Even Cambodian little girl sweat-shop operators won't be able to compete.
Could this solution be more obvious?
Doesn't every American deserve a job? And the right to buy one?
There'll be plenty of American jobs when workers are freed to pay for one.
Freedom. America. Jobs.
Who could argue?
