Factory JOBS? Manufacturing? How about any kind of work you can do with just a HS degree? Or work that can be done with sweat and maybe not quite so much thinking?
We ain't got none of those jobs anymore. We have a population that requires jobs like that -- some people cannot contribute much more than the sweat of their brow. And we have none of those jobs.
So what do we do with tens of millions of people who are essentially unemployable? Right now, Obama and the socialists have the only answer.
The are not unemployable. There is a market wage that they can earn. It may not be a great wage but its there. Most unskilled and uneducated people in this country believe they have a birthright to a good paying job that doesn’t require much effort. If they cannot find it then there is Uncle Sugar.
We have many sweaty jobs for non-thinking people. They are in seasonal crops, drywall, roofing, ditch digging, cleaning, food preparation, and etc. Haven’t you seen all the fair skinned US citizens lining up for those jobs.
It is not so much that we don’t have jobs that can be done by someone with a high school education, it is instead that we don’t have HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES with a high school education. In fact numerous reports have said that we don’t have high school graduates with even an eighth grade education. In most cases we don’t have college graduates with a REAL high school education. If kindergarten through high school years were used for teaching as they used to be there would be no need for more than a very small percentage of the university classrooms that we now fill.
Check out the kind of jobs being done by these college graduates, it doesn’t look like they are doing anything that a typical high school dropout should not be able to do.
