Skip to comments.More Jobs than Job Seekers [semi-satire]
Posted on 06/11/2018 10:59:00 AM PDT by John Semmens
This month, for the first time since employment statistics have been tracked, there are now more job openings than there are persons seeking employment. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of job vacancies for the most recent month were 6.7 million while the number of unemployed persons seeking jobs came in at 6.35 million.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) called these statistics further proof that the Trump Administrations policies are destroying this country. His tax cuts are provoking businesses to expand their production, but the induced labor shortages will choke off this expansion. It will be an economic catastrophe.
Thankfully, voters will have an opportunity to set things on a more stable course this November, the Minority Leader pointed out. By electing a Democrat majority to Congress we can pass legislation that will repeal the tax cuts and reestablish the regulatory constraints that allowed the economy to maintain the more sustainable stagnation set in place during the Obama years.
In a bid to win over a greater share of corporate money to support the election of Democrats, Pelosi suggested that the job vacancies could be filled at a lower labor cost if we increase immigration. By granting amnesty to the millions already here and by opening the borders to the tens of millions more who want to come to America we could easily fill the 6.7 million vacancies without having to raise wages or disturb the leisure of the millions of Americans who have become accustomed to living freed from the obligation to support themselves.
In related news, the deregulation and tax cuts pushed by the Trump Administration have enabled the United States to retake the lead as the worlds most competitive economy for 2017. The USs faster economic growth and a supportive atmosphere for scientific and technological innovation allowed it to knock Hong Kong from the top spot, an achievement that former President Obama lamented, calling it a reversal of the progress toward an unthreatening mediocrity we made during my eight years in office. Being number one puts a target on your back. Its safer to be in the middle where no one envies you and there is no incentive to try to take you down.

NO, Naacy DeLousy is missing on MOST of the problems caused by Donald J. Trump. If I may:
1. Deforestation. Forests are being felled in order to make PAPER for the millions of “Help Wanted”, “We are Hiring”, and “Positions Available” signs literally covering the country. How will the denuding of forests effect the climate?
2. Additional hundreds of thousands of cars are clogging the nations’s highways as newly hired employees clog the roads on the way to their NEW jobs. Twice a day, out of control RUSH HOURS jam the traffic of this country, cars spewing pollutants into the atmosphere as they sit in miles long traffic jams.
3. As a result of Trump’s ever growing economy evening and week-end traffic is at a standstill as millions of americans, pockets containing MONEY, head to out dine, shop, go to movies and/or visit friends. Restaraunts are crowded and table waits are long than ever.
Whose fault is that, may I ask?
you make good points
