Throughout my campaign, I have been listening to the voices of people across America. I met one man who told me, "I don't know what I did wrong. I got my education and I worked hard. I've been at the same company for 12 years now, but I've just been asked to train my successor because my job is moving to another country."
Another woman said to me, "I just can't make ends meet. My health care premiums have doubled, college tuition is up. How am I supposed to make it as a single mom?"
I am running for president to bring those voices to the White House and give people a chance to achieve the American Dream: having a good job, owning their own home and living with financial security. That means tackling our toughest challenges -- rising inequality, stagnating wages and a growing sense that too many middle class families are just one pink slip away from financial devastation.
My measure of economic success will never be a single, dry statistic. Rather, success means an economy that allows those at the bottom to work their way into the middle class, without pushing anyone out. It means leaving people better off when I finish than when I start. In short, success means an economy that shares its prosperity with all.

How is it possible to train the successor for your job, when the company is leaving the country for cheaper labor?
Shared prosperity my ass. It’s government-sanctioned theft.
I wondered that myself.
well, even hitler published his ideas in advance. not comparing her to him, btw.
Silly you.....the "rich" of course.
However, I read somewhere that if all of the American "rich's" wealth were taxed at 100%...it would run the government for about a week....So....it is left to us, the not so rich, to pay the way for the millions of deadbeat Americans that we seem to be stuck with. The "rich" can't even come close without the great American "middle class".
If Hillary gets her way, the great American middle class will shrink considerably because some of them will get so tired of paying for nothing....they will just give up and go home.
This is breaking news?
Congrats on your fourth post.
I had no clue you felt that way! Billary, please send a mil or two to me...
At least it seems so to me when I had to call for some billing problems.
Knock it off. Your countdown garbage is getting old.
PS, not that this is a bad article, I missed it and I thank you for posting it. We’ll discuss the merits of Marxism and where Hilldawg is going wrong.
All these “woe is me stories” Hillary comes up with...... I guess they poll well.
I’ll never forget when Bradley was running in the primaries (if I remember correctly), and he told a story about being in the doctor’s office waiting for an appointment and he watched a mother bring her daughter out of the examining room and go up to the counter and she actually had to open her checkbook and write a check for $60 !!!!
It happened to me,,trained them , just forgot a few things..
Cheaper labor in this case was being contracted out,..
The foreigner is brought here by the company that is leaving here. Of course Her Thighness fails to tell you why the company is leaving.
Taxes are too high.
Odds are it’s a union controlled company that has driven the company to the verge of bankruptcy.
Slip and fall John Edwards types camp out on the companys door step.
Regulation, litigation, and taxation. A business’s biggest enemy.
Sorry. I was just trying to help. This didn’t look like it belonged in Breaking News.
Hillary steals Millions in campign money, and then gets the keys to the white house and fills full of our tax dollars,
she gives us heath care we get tto pay for need it or not,
and then those of us who do’nt get are wages garnished.
MARXISM at it finest
Shared Prosperity = Communism.
Hillary plan for shared prosperity: 60 for her, 40 for Bill.
That is right. She prospers. You/We share.
Rising inequality, that’s easy to fix!! We’ll just have the government confiscate all personal property so everyone has nothing and thus is equal.
Gee Hillary, how come you didn’t do these things for people in your last administration? Oh yeah, that was your HUSBAND right? Sheesh!
Shared prosperity? Whassup, the social justice euphemism got retired all of a sodden? Cain’t keep up with these Commies!
Well, I guess that "Mommy Government"TM will just have to take care of you. You poor little thing.
It's a good thing that Hillary! is here, or else you might end up eating out of a dumpster.
Prove it Hillary............send me money from your bank account now or STFU !
“Shared Prosperity” = Socialism.
You posted this the last time you didn’t want something in breaking, didn’t you?

One for me, one for you.
Two for me, one for you.
Three for me, one for you.
That’s how Hillary will share.
No, the JOB was moving to another country. I can tell you how you train someone in another country to take over your job, because I had to do it, too. It’s called NetMeeting and teleconferences. It’s still a VERY sore point with me, because I lost my job with a company that I’d been at for 28-1/2 years to outsourcing. This was after a number of raises, transfers, and promotions, taking progressively more responsibility. I was pretty close to earning full retirement benefits when they laid me off, too.
And they ended up hiring me back, if you have questions about my performance being a factor in their decision.
“Shared prosperity” is code for creeping socialism.
Why did she publish it in the WSJ? To persuade its readers?Unlikely. To persuade the sheep via the TV talking heads this evening, who will cite it as if the Journal,that is to say the voice of the business community, has endorsed such drivel.
And the beat goes on,,
And of couse the question is, who wrote it? Mamma’s boy Sid? (Probably.) Has Hitlery even read it?
“Shared prosperity is code for creeping socialism.”
There ain’t nothing “creeping” about it, it’s full blown communism.
Do a favor for your kid's, change your liberal attitude, and get married to a conservative minded fellow.
I think that a big bank that is moving a call center to the Pillipines is also sending employees to get things started over there, training and all.
Hope that clears the question up some for you.
