There Will Never Be Enough Jobs In America Again

Well, we just had another bad jobs report.  The U.S. economy created just 80,000 new jobs during the month of June.  Normally, about 125,000 new jobs need to be created every month just to keep up with population growth.  So it is a bit odd that the official unemployment rate did not rise above 8.2%.  What is even more alarming is that the Social Security Administration is telling us that 85,000 U.S. workers "left the workforce" and enrolled in the Social Security Disability Insurance program during the month of June.  That means that the number of Americans enrolling in Social Security Disability actually exceeded the number of new jobs that was created.  That is definitely not a sign of recovery.  Unfortunately, this is about as good as things are going to get.  Right now corporate profits are at an all-time high and usually after a recession has ended the percentage of working age Americans that have jobs bounces back very strongly.  But that has not happened this time, and when the next economic crisis hits things are going to get a lot worse.

The headline to this article states that there will never be enough jobs in America again.

How could that possibly be true?

Well, the sad truth is that it is very hard to make a profit on an employee in the United States today.

Every year, the control freaks that run things just keep dumping more taxes, more laws, more regulations and more demands on employers.  Hiring even a low level employee today is very complicated and very expensive.

These days a lot of small business owners have decided that it is simply not worth the hassle to hire more employees.  If you can't make a profit on them, what is the point?

If there was going to be a major rebound in hiring, we would have seen it by now.  Corporate profits are at an all-time high as I mentioned earlier.  How much more money do they need to make before they start hiring?

But I don't blame them.  Our politicians have loaded the system with plenty of incentives NOT to hire workers.

Yesterday, I wrote about how Barack Obama has been a one man wrecking crew when it comes to killing jobs.  But he is not the only one to blame.  The truth is that politicians from both political parties have been making things more difficult for employers for decades.

Today, many employers are trying to replace as many employees as possible with computers, automation, robotics and other forms of technology.  Those are jobs that are not ever going to come back.

However, sometimes human labor is still actually needed.

But instead of hiring American workers, many big corporations are taking advantage of the emerging "one world economy" and are setting up shop in countries where it is legal to pay slave labor wages.

So how are American workers supposed to compete with that?

The truth is that they can't.

Today, you aren't just competing for jobs with your neighbors.  Your competition also includes millions upon millions of hard working people on the other side of the globe that will gladly work 12 hour shifts in nightmarish conditions for a dollar an hour.

The United States has been losing millions of jobs to lower wage countries, and the fierce competition for the jobs that remain is driving down wages in this country.

As a result, many of our greatest cities that were once the envy of the entire world have become cesspools of filth, decay and wretchedness.

We are going to continue to bleed jobs because both major political parties are fully convinced that merging our labor pool with the labor pool of the rest of the world is a grand idea.

Republicans have been brainwashed into believing that a one world economic system is actually "conservative".  They have been told that it is "conservative" to merge our economy with countries ruled by third world dictators and brutal communist regimes that have no respect for human rights at all.

Democrats have been brainwashed into believing that merging our economy into a one world economic system is "good for American workers" and will bring more prosperity to this country.

Barack Obama is even negotiating a treaty right now that would reportedly ban all "Buy American" laws.

How stupid can we be?

If we merge our labor pool with the labor pool of the rest of the world with no protection, guess where our wages and our standard of living is going to go?

The answer is obvious.

The "giant sucking sound" that Ross Perot warned us about so many years ago has become a reality.

It is just basic economics.

If I go to the store and I see two similar products and one is priced at $10 and the other is priced at $100 I am going to go for the one priced $10.

Well, it is the same thing with employees.

U.S. workers can't compare with low wage workers on the other side of the world.  It is simply no contest.

Meanwhile, our control freak politicians continue to shove more jobs out the door by piling on even more taxes, rules and regulations.

Unfortunately, these trends are not going to change.  It doesn't matter who gets elected.  The bleeding of jobs is going to continue.

In fact, we should probably be celebrating that things are still as good as they are.

In the future they will be a whole lot worse.

The period we are in right now was supposed to be the recovery.  During the last recession the percentage of working age Americans with jobs fell dramatically.  Since the end of the recession, that number has stayed remarkably flat....

Now the next major downturn is rapidly approaching.

When it hits, the unemployment rate is going to go well up into the double digits.

At the moment, our failing economy is being propped up by unprecedented amounts of debt.

When our debt-fueled false prosperity ends, the true horror of the decay of our economic system will be revealed.

If you think it is hard to find a job now, you just wait.  What is coming is going to be a total nightmare.  As I have written about before, many years of pain are ahead.

But that doesn't mean that you have to lose hope.

On my website, people often share how their lives have been absolutely devastated by this economy.  Some of them are even so down that they are considering giving up completely.

But that is the exact wrong response to all of this!

The reason why I try so hard to explain what is coming is so that it will not be a surprise to people.  If you make plans and preparations now, the times that are coming will not overwhelm you.  I believe that there will be people that will be greatly blessed even in the midst of what is coming.

However, millions of Americans that are not listening to the warnings now will have their lives totally destroyed by what is coming.

The world is changing.  Nothing is going to stop that.  The unprecedented prosperity that we have been rolling in is going to shrivel up and go away.

But that does not mean that your life is over.

In fact, if you get yourself physically and mentally prepared for what is ahead the times that are coming can be the greatest times of your life.

One of my goals is to give people hope.  There is hope in understanding what is coming.  There is hope in being prepared.  There is hope in being a light in the middle of the darkness.  There is hope in being willing to love people in the midst of a world that is going crazy.  The following is from a comment that one reader left on a recent article....

I wanted to thank you, the author of this article, whoever you are. I haven’t completely ruled out killing myself but you’ve certainly given me something to think about. And thank you for trying to give people like me a little hope. A little kindness, even if only through words, is at a premium these days especially in my life. I will think carefully about what you’ve said. Best wishes to you and your efforts. God bless.

Everyone out there that is in a similar position - please do not ever, ever, ever give up.

No matter how bad things look right now, there are people out there that care.

One thing I have learned in life is this - there is always a way that things can be turned around.

Sadly, in the future a lot of Americans are going to give in to despair and will completely give up on life.  We saw it happen during the Great Depression of the 1930s and we are seeing this in Greece and other European countries right now.

But the truth is that your life is not over no matter how bad things get out there.

You can let the times that are coming destroy you, or you can make them the greatest adventure of your life.

The choice is up to you.

I urge you to get ready, to get more independent of the system and to start focusing on the things that really matter in life.

    Michael–now I know that is you in the picture holding that sign. I can not quite make out what it says. Looks like it says “Tax the rich and spread the wealth” This increases demand and puts more people to work.

    Send me a copy of your sign and I will also hold iota up with that message.

  • Gary2

    Michael–there seems to be something wrong with the site as I do not see comments pending on a consistent basis.

  • Randy

    Couple of things. Your comment on businesses being over regulated: I guess you could say we do have a lot more regulation than lets say Indonesia. Unfortunately, without some regulations many businesses do destructive things like kill their employees and decimate the environment. So there is no way to compete in a world economy when the playing field is not level at all. Our businesses have regulations to protect us and protect the environment. That is the huge fallacy of world wide trade as nothing is level. Also, FYI. My company can’t hire enough people right now. And we are hiring for well paid living wage jobs. The reason being, we can’t find enough “QUALIFIED” people. Or people that are physically able and willing to get dirty and sweaty. Those who want to work need to look into fields that can’t be outsourced. Heavy equipment/diesel repair is where it is at. 25-35 bucks an hour with generous benefits package. If you spend a couple of years at Votech school you can usually get into an aprprenticeship program at one of the major outfits anywhere in the country. Just starting out you will make over 20 an hour. Sure beats the hell out of Walmart. I don’t think they will be shipping bulldozers to China to be worked on anytime soon.

    So I have a business degree and took a different path. I think if I had it to do over again I would do exactly that. Some of our guys get to travel all over the place working on stuff. Other guys just like to stay in one location. We got people working fromo the Gulf Coast all the way to Prudhoe Bay Alaska. This work is however not for the faint of heart. You have to be willing to work hard. I think a lot of people in America have gotten lazy. Too many people on the dole these days.

  • Gary2

    Here is the deal and this is a verifiable fact:

    since 1900 EVERY republican president has ended their term with unemployment higher than when they took office. With the dems EVERY president admin the unemployment rate has been lower at the end of their term. This is over 100 years of proof conservatives make things worse and dems make things better.

    Michael–when you verify that this is true, which it is, then explain how you can still promote conservatism as it obviously is a failure. The facts speak for themselves.

    • Rodster

      And so Odumber hasn’t done squat to make things better after spending trillions more than any other President in history. In fact if you would add those who have given up looking for unemployment those unemployment figures would probably be in the mid teens. It goes to show how figures lie and liars figure. ;)

      • Gary2

        you did not address what I said and it looks like Obama will have lower UE than he did when he started even though it is still way too high. Need a huge stimulus to put people back to work like Roosevelt did. Obama is too damned conservative with predictable poor results.

        • Rodster

          A humongous stimulus did not work the last time, just got us deeper in debt. Are you proud of 8.2% unemployment which is really more like 14.5% UE when you factor in all those that gave up looking for work?

          And he’s a liberal rag newspaper who at least gets past the BS.

          And I seriously doubt we’ll hit 5% UE by the time the elections roll around. Odumber is just going to drive the spike thru the heart of the US. He’s no different than any other socialist who is hellbent on spending and using other peoples money to giveaway to the poor saps for votes.

          • Gary2

            if he is a socialist he is a pretty rotten one.

    • mike Beale

      With the dems EVERY president admin the unemployment rate has been lower at the end of their term.

      I guess the Obummer will be breaking that streak in January, huh? (here is where you are programmed to spit out ITS BUSH’s FAULT)

    • Louise in MO


      I don’t believe a word you say! Because of your numerous rants and constant “tax the rich” as an answer to every problem…you have no credibility!

      • Gary2

        I do not want you to believe what I say. Simply fact check this for yourself…or are you afraid I am correct and it will kill your conservative and foolish worldview??? go ahead fact check me. Just be big enough to say I am correct.

      • Paul

        You are so right – it is far easier to tax the poor.

        You don’t get any money, but at least they can’t fight it.

    • Chloe

      That depends on how they deal with the numbers and which media outlet is giving you the info.

  • Gary2

    get this straight—business is under regulated not over regulated. Simply look at wall street.

    deregulation=decriminalization plain and simple.

    • Chloe

      Wow. That proved absolutely nothing.

    It will be through, God, faith, us, people, that we will make it. Supporting, encouraging, helping one another.
    Yes Michael, there is always hope!

  • Colin

    Our nation is not preparing itself for the future. It is sacrificing its most important resource – human capital – as it wrestles with an economic crisis that is becoming an ingrained, longer problem. With each crisis, with each wave of the economic tsunami, our nation irreparably damages any future innovation and growth by slashing education funds, by closing schools, and laying-off teachers. With a population that is poorly educated, and poorly trained, and incapable of competing other nations, our country dooms its own future generations.

    As for hiring Americans, I wouldn’t be surprised if some in the business community are holding back for they hope to see President Obama defeated in November. The Republicans aren’t acting in a bubble when they are obstructing the President’s jobs agenda. Members of this party are being rewarded for their obstructionism by the business community. And, some of the wealthiest Americans are funding Super Pacs in an effort to outpace the President’s campaign for they know that in many campaigns that the candidate with the most money wins.

    I know that it’s easy to blame the President, but this is ignoring the Constitution which clearly delineates who writes the bills. It’s not the President, it’s Congress, and I would like for once, Michael, if you acknowledge the role that the Republicans are playing in this economic crisis. This isn’t the first time that the Republicans have obstructed a Democratic president’s agenda. They have been doing this since the Johnson era, and, during the Roosevelt era, led efforts to kill the New Deal.

    And what most don’t know – 100,000 LEGAL immigrants every month. Everyone of them has to get a job or go on welfare. Why wasn’t this stopped 2 years ago when the economy crashed? We don’t need any more immigrants and we haven’t needed any for decades. They serve other purposes – votes for the Democrats, cheap labor for the Republicans. They are united on letting them in – a marriage of convenience made in hell.

  • BFH

    Don’t kid yourself!!! The politicians both republican, democratic, liberal or conservatives know full well what the problem is. They knowingly have and are passing the laws that caused this. They are controlled and rewarded by corporations that make plenty of money because of access to slave wages. They have sold us out for their own greed and as such should be charged with treason and executed accordingly.
    We NEVER will have any real rebound in the economy unless and until we have jobs AND the debt is paid. Neither of which is EVER going to happen.

  • Paul Blumenthal

    There WILL BE great America again! The reason is YOU People! People who have aweken to the dire reality of debt. Ron Paul supporters! Freedom true believers! That’s the last stand on Earth where people DO understand Freedom and DO understand capitalism. Look, I’m an US citizen, who was born in Europe. Who also lived in Asia. You can trust me on one thing: nobody really gets it except for the Americans. We will get through. There is hope. Because of the People. Just don’t give up and FIGHT!

  • chiller

    Michael, you are fighting the good fight by trying to make people aware of what’s coming and prod them into action. I do it tool but at the same time tell them, “I’d rather look like a paranoid old man than not say anything and watch my friends and family get caught flat footed”. At least my conscience will be clear knowing I went Paul Revere and got the message out. One of people’s biggest fears is losing it all. A friend of mine hasn’t made a house payment in 7 months and no word from the bank. He lose his job and is now doing odd jobs to get by. I work on his car for free to help him out. He’s more worried about paying me for the car work than the bank taking his home. The banks won’t be taking anything from anyone once they collapse. So people, do as Michael says here and put together a plan with friends and family to help each other and put your mind at ease a little. We have a large elephant coming to try and trample us into the ground. How do you eat an elephant?…one bite at a time.

    • Michael

      Good words.

      And yes, let us all try to be modern day Paul Reveres.

    The only way to make everyone ‘equal’ globally is to redistribute American wealth overseas. A ‘global economy’ has been created to do just that. When we talk about people in India working for ‘slave wages’ performing jobs that were once American jobs, we miss the mark (or maybe the Marx). People in ‘developing countries’ view these as good jobs and good wages, just like we did before the jobs were shipped overseas. So the standard of living in, say India, is increased and the standard of living in America is decreased. We have created a slow erosion of prosperity in America that has been the source of some heartburn for Americans but that doesn’t get noticed by the masses until it’s too late (at which point they’ll riot which will give government even more power).

    We have moved from a manufacturing economy to a service economy. Manufacturing has been exported for years, now service is being exported. When it’s all said and done, we’ll have the same personal wealth as the average person in India, Pakistan or China. This is the goal and it’s intentional I think. Take a look at the corporate tax rate in America. It’s the highest in the world. We’ve allowed our wages to be artificially inflated as well, partly because our money isn’t pinned to any real source of wealth. We are over-regulated in almost everything we could do, creativity has been stifled and upstart businesses with good ideas are either crushed by the burden of doing business in this system or are purchased by large corporations and destroyed. We’ve learned to accept payroll deductions of almost half (or more in some cases) of our earned income to finance anything and anyone that ‘needs’ it and we have created a large recipient class that is supported by relatively few who still work to pay for it all. So we’ve grown accustomed to having our personal wealth stripped away and given to others as our ‘patriotic and charitable duty’. In the meantime, the same is happening with our national wealth. There will be a breaking point at some time but I don’t think many people will truly realize what caused it or who did it. Eventually the playing field will be leveled and we’ll be happy to work for $1 an hour just like everyone else on the planet.

    The only things we truly own in life are our labor and our selves. History can provide plenty of examples of governments attempting to harvest these two, as well. Unfortunately, very dark times generally come to people before they find the will to put a stop to it. If you take globalism (and what’s behind it) to it’s logical conclusion, we now seem to be living in a very unique time with very frightening possibilities for many. For some, they will indeed be magnificent times. I personally believe that nothing makes men and women turn to God more than realizing we can’t place our trust in men who run countries. I believe we are witnessing the greatest theft to have ever taken place. They can take your labor (unless you refuse to labor for them…you own your labor), they can take your self only if you choose not to live anymore. Indeed there is a bright future ahead but only necessary and difficult times will bring it into fruition. Have faith.

    I wonder how many of the americans trying to collect a Social Security disability check are really disabled? I think a lot of them are committing fraud. They are capable of working but don’t want to anymore. It only means that Social Security will be drained even faster. Kiss the Social Security surplus good-bye. Most of the American people are so dishonest in many ways.

    • TX4Life

      I know someone right now who is getting an attorney to help her file for SS disability. Disabled? No, she is not. She simply wants to be paid to smoke cigarettes and sit on her behind. We all have aches and pains as we age but she plans to use hers as a means to receive disability.

  • Chanticleer

    Employers find American employees too expensive, and the employers therefore hire cheap labor overseas. However, an end to the US outsourcing of factories and jobs will not solve that problem for the US workers, because other nations will continue to outsource, and the foreign-made products will out-compete the American-made products for market share.

    Automation and technology are eliminating jobs. That process will cause US and global unemployment to increase steadily, regardless of an end to outsourcing, or any other attempts to bolster the US economy. Technological advancements will only accelerate the process of job loss.

    The author of the article did not emphasize this point, and I feel that I should. An end to outsourcing and efforts to improve the US economy are only temporary band-aids that will not stop the inexorable advance of technology, which will continue to eliminate jobs, until only a minority of the population is needed as full-time workers. The majority of workers will become redundant.

  • yroy

    Hi Michael, thanks for writing this article with honesty and integrity, which is so rare in today’s corporate news media. It will be great if you can also shine light on the booming and lucrative student loan business, which pays for 5 years of party-time for students, in return for a lifetime of slavery.

    It is ALWAYS a numbers game. Take two people. One grows food and fetches water. The other makes stuff like houses, tools, widgets. The person who supplies consumables always has the advantage over the person who builds things that wear out slowly unless someone uses force to game the system. You can try to equalize by charging more for your doodads or make your doodads wear out sooner but it is a zero sum game. I will NOT pay you more for an hour’s labor than what I produce in an hour. Go ahead and multiply the number of people by a billion. Go ahead and buy machines and computers to do your labor. In the end it does not matter. The money will always tend to accumulate to the businesses that supply the equivalent of ‘our daily bread’. You can do more for yourself and buy less from others but that will only make the ‘System’ collapse faster. Reverting to the ‘mean’ should always end with a 1:1
    ratio where what I do for you equals the worth of what you do for me. Anything else can only be achieved by cheating, using force, doing less work than you are capable,etc…

  • Optimistic Pessimist

    I know what i am about to say is controversial but in theory there are enough jobs for everyone at the RIGHT PRICE. Unfortunately that price is too low to live adequately in the western world. As you mentioned Michael we are competing against the world for jobs not just the people in our country.
    I saw it in the UK a year ago when the company I was working for decided to focus on the bottom line instead of the top one.
    Bottom line: cut product/service costs to find efficiencies, then cut unproductive or non-core staff.
    Top line: focus on growing the business increasing sales and profit to hold on to skilled staff.
    NOTE: I decided to leave to start working for myself – a tough decision but I hope it will be worth it in the long run.
    The trouble with focusing on the bottom line is that after cutting product/service then non-core staff you cannot cut the core staff so the only thing left to do is either cut all salaries further or run the risk of going out of business.
    Sorry to end on such a sad note. I never thought that I would learn more about economics in the real world than at school, sadly it is the harsh side of economics I am now being schooled in.

    Thus says The Lord: Who are all these before Me?! What people is this who have despised Me, these who walk proudly, hating Me and My Word?!…

    Ignorant and sinful people!…

    You have become as false gods in My eyes!… Detestable idols!

    Each one of you, from the least to the greatest, have turned from Me,
    To worship your idols and corrupted images!…


    Yes, you uphold every false image and detestable doctrine, with which you spit in My face! You flee all accountability, and rest comfortably in your sin, bearing a multitude of bitter fruit in unrighteousness… LAWLESS PEOPLE!… You have despised Me and My Law! Therefore, around your necks shall it be strewn, and you shall bear its weight!… Every jot and every tittle!… Says The Mighty One, The God of Jacob!

    HERE I AM!… The God of ALL!…

    The God of recompense and judgment!

    My peoples, hear the Word of The Living God!… All peoples of the earth, hear the voice of your maker: You have all entered in!… The Day is here, and you have entered in!… THE DAY OF THE LORD!

    Therefore, bow down heavily…

    Fall on your faces, and wail loudly!… CRY OUT!…

    Die to yourselves, and grab hold of The Holy One of Israel,
    And pray that you are counted worthy to escape!

    I lie not!… YOU HAVE ENTERED IN!

    Lo, did I not say to you that your knowledge was useless, and all your thoughts and imaginings were in vain?… For I am The Lord, and I do according to the counsel of My own will.
    For the scholars cry, “FALSE!”, and the Christians plot in vain against My messengers… And the people of Israel walk proudly, exalting themselves by their own knowledge, though they remain ignorant, for the Truth is still hidden from their eyes.
    My own sheep stumble! The whole world falls down and is broken!… When, O peoples, will you cast yourselves down? When will you be humbled? When will you forsake your knowledge and be free?!… I AM THE LORD! EVEN I AM HE! There is no knowledge apart from Me, and there can be no understanding, save it was given you by Mashiach… HE is your Master!

    Have you not felt these pangs, O earth?!
    Have you not recoiled in pain, O heavens?!
    Has not fear grabbed hold of you, O mighty nations?!…


    I am calling all peoples to repent and to turn! My face is turned against you! My shoulders are set! My hand is stretched forward!… WOE! WOE! WOE! TO THOSE WHO DWELL UPON THE EARTH! The fire is kindled!… All flesh shall burn!
    I shall strike the animals, and they shall rage against you! I shall strike the waters, and they shall rise up against you! From bitterness to the raging of the seas, the waters shall oppress you!… Death shall increase quickly!
    I shall strike the mountains, and they shall speak and bring forth a great noise! They shall consume you and bury your cities! I shall strike the heavens, and it shall rain down fire and flooding rain, with a great multitude of hail!
    Lo, even the detestable birds who dwell there shall descend upon you, and torment you seven days! I shall strike the core of the earth, and it shall be shaken! And all manner of plagues shall ascend upon you from beneath!…

    For I am The Lord who reigns!…

    He who laid the foundations!…

    He who formed it and causes to be!…

    Behold, I am also He, who shall bring forth a swift end!

    For the whole earth is but a footstool beneath My feet!… A rock in My hand, made of limestone!… Easily broken!
    A great war has broken forth! The battle is waged! Yet The Lord’s hand is not at all weakened… Behold, My strength is increased, and My wrath overflows My cup!… I AM COMING DOWN!
    I shall rob, and I shall pillage, and I shall surely take My spoil! I shall oppress the oppressors and conquer the land! I shall kill the generals, and slaughter the captains, and tear all mighty men to pieces!… FOR STRONG IS THE LORD! – Hear the WORD of the LORD!

    What people think they “need” now is not what people “needed” in the past. A Sunday drive and a stop for ice cream was a great day in the past and was part of the “middle class” life in the 40s,and 50′s. Drive in movies were a blast and picnics at the county park an event for the whole family.

    Poverty was not being able to enjoy these simple pleasures.

    People did not crave “things” like they do today, and especially the youth of today.

    “Middle class” is in the eye of the beholder. I don’t have all of the gadgets that are out there, but I am quite satisfied.

    Well… Michael (it is Michael, isn’t it?) I’m not sure whether I’m more frightened by these articles or by these comments! I learned this one when I was a teenager, if you spend more than you make and continue in that manner, you will eventually be knocked out of commission (and boy did it hurt). With that said, I now say this: THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN THEM. If we really wanted things to change we would make it happen, and quite easily. The truth is that this is what the people want and so I say this: We all deserve every last bit of “hard times” that ARE coming our way. This will not be turned around and that’s not a bad thing. Look at us, we’re disgusting bags of filth! Trash on tv, trash on the radio, trash in our books, (including the religious scene) trash in our relationships, trash in our heads, trash in our mouths and trash in our hearts. Let’s get out of Babylon, turn our hearts to God, repent for our wicked ways, plead for forgiveness from the King (that’s Jesus, if you somehow haven’t heard, also, if you somehow haven’t heard, He WILL forgive) learn how to dig a hole, learn how to eat our food by the sweat of our brow as is good and right and actually rewarding. Real life is a bit nastier than most here are used to, but it’s the only way and the truth is that in real life, you just don’t have time for all the garbage that helped us to speedily arrive HERE.

      Your comment is trash. And which god do you propose we repent to. Pick a god any god. They’re a dime a dozen and not worth a penny. If you’re waiting for god to save you then you’re doomed. You’ve doomed yourself. Just ask all the other dead (suckers) souls that died while waiting to be saved. Waiting when they should have taken matters in their own hands. A weak mind is never sure of anything and doubts everything, even itself.

      When you live a life based in knowledge – Believing becomes irrelevant.

    That’s right! The jobs are going to keep disappearing. It’s called technological unemployment and some other things you’re not ready hear. This is why our old way of life is with. But that’s a good think. The problem is, the people are not well informed. Main stream media, government, big business, little business and Wall Street won’t tell you the truth. They can’t, because it will end there ability to make a profit. But it doesn’t matter. We can do this the hard way or we can do this the right way. We have to liberate the work force. It literally means man is free. But you can’t free the body until you free the mind!

    Technology alone doesn’t explain the paucity of jobs. I think population growth is another factor. In the pre-industrial European society, an increase in population growth could result in a lack of jobs for every able person. This was what happened in Kibbleworth, a town in England, around 1300. And this was why the Greek city-states founded colonies in the 7th and 6th centuries BCE.

    All of you who are relying on God to save you are in for disappointment.

    God didn’t save Rome.
    God didn’t save Europe from the Black Plague.
    God didn’t save the British Empire.
    God didn’t save the Ottoman Empire.
    God didn’t save Russia from the Bolsheviks.
    God didn’t save Germany and Japan from firebombing and starvation.
    God didn’t save China from Communism.
    God didn’t save the Palestinians.
    God didn’t save the millions upon millions of people who called on Him in their darkest hour throughout history.

    God isn’t going to save you.

    Pray and repent all you want, at least you’ll feel a little happier as your world crumbles around you. Something you could have stopped, if you prayed a little LESS and did a little MORE.

    This is why Christians are disgusting. Weak and pathetic.

  • Paul

    Never say never.

    It’s just that the population growth rate in the US is comparable with developing countries (so-called Third World countries).

    How will all these people get a job when even agriculture is automated?

    The problem isn’t that too little wealth is created in America. It is just concentrated in too few households.

    If you do not want to touch the rich, you need to control the population, or America will become like the Philippines – church-controlled high population growth rate (contraception is illegal), a few rich families who control everything, and high export of laborers.

    We can be smart,frugal,careful,stay out of debt, etc.
    but we should not fear…
    Mathew 6:25-34
    Jesus says..
    “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. I snot life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
    And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that no even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like on of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will be not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So DO NOT WORRY, saying ‘what shall we eat?’ or ‘what shall we drink?’ or ‘what shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore DO NOT WORRY about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

    Rather than asking Americans to live in poverty as a way to convince companies to hire us, why don’t we just charge TARIFFS against manufactured imported goods from backward, impoverished nations that oppress their workers on purpose? Wouldn’t that make more sense? Why should Americans agree to “compete” with slaves in the labor market?

  • TheRandyGuy

    The article is absolutely correct. I live in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley. People haven’t been fired or let go, their positions have been eliminated – gone for good. I have friends who were making upwards of $200,000 a year who have been unemployed for more than a year. These people are brilliant, have advanced degrees from top schools, and have been unable to find a job. The idea that good times are just around the corner is being sold to us by politicians desperate to 1) keep their job and 2) terrified of being held accountable.Truth is, we are to blame by living beyond our means for decades and allowing our government to do the same. The reset is coming and it will make the Great Depression look like nothing.

      Great comment.


  • Mr. Kimball

    Who wants a job anyway? At the place I work at, all anybody does is complain about how horrible it is and how they wish they where at the tavern having a beer. So, go ahead. Give all the stinkin’ jobs to China.
    Then we can all stay home and watch The Beverly Hillbillies and smoke joints! Thats all anybody ever say they want to do. The only person at work that ever seems happy is the owner(s).

    • Paul

      Then make everyone an owner!

      Basically that’s the idea of communism.

      Everybody is an owner and acts like one.


      (You can’t introduce communism, because then everyone just sells their ownership and buys drugs.)

  • J Hul

    Points to Jesus’s coming which is our hope. Neither party has the answer. We have not followed the Bible’s suggestions for living and reap what we sow. But, I ask purely on a worldly basis, who buys products when most workers are laid off and replaced by robots? Bad idea for businesses. We don’t need a world of 10 cent per hour workers. We need one of $15-20 equivalent world wide. We need consumers to have money to spend. We want all boats to rise, not sink. Makes you wonder why the world is going in the opposite direction. The antichrist comes, and we are setting up his world.

  • MountainSaint

    No where in the article was there any mention of the tens of millions formerly Middle Class jobs being lost to the 38,000,000 illegal aliens. They are stealing nearly 100% of all new “low-end jobs”. (17,000,000 of the “high-end jobs” are being taken by HlB Visa holders)…To bring the jobs back, we will have to put high tariffs on imports, terminate the visa programs and deport all illegal aliens and their families.

  • Gary Reber

    This editorial REALLY GETS IT.

    Sadly, our leaders are not prepared and are not preparing the American people for the coming economic collapse and the next Great Depression, due to their lack of wisdom and foresight to understand that full employment is not an objective of businesses. Companies strive to keep labor input and other costs at a minimum. Private sector job creation in numbers that match the pool of people willing and able to work is constantly being eroded by physical productive capital’s ever increasing role––as the use of “machines,” superautomation, robotics, digital computerized operations, etc. to produce products and services.

    Without a policy shift to broaden productive capital ownership simultaneously with economic growth, further development of technology and globalization will undermine the American middle class and make it impossible for more than a minority of citizens to achieve middle-class status.

    President Obama stated: “What’s at stake is whether this will be a country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home, and secure their retirement.” As long as working people are limited by earning income solely through their labor worker wages, they will be left behind by the continued gravitation of economic bounty toward the top 1 percent of the people that the system is rigged to benefit. These top 1 percent will seek out national and global markets to sell their products and services to and abandon any market that cannot sustain consumption.

    Working people and the middle class will continue to stagnate, resulting in a stagnated consumer economy. More troubling is that this continued stagnation will further dim the economic hopes of America’s youth, no matter what their education level. The result will have profound long-term consequences for the nation’s economic health and further limit equal earning opportunity and spread income inequality. As the need for labor decreases and the power and leverage of productive capital increases, the gap between labor workers and capital owners will increase, which will result in upheaval.

    The BIG ISSUE, which is the cause, is not being presented or discussed!! This solution is ENTIRELY missed by the author of the editorial.

    Both Obama and Romney should realize that the continual focus on full employment means, “full toil and waste for all forever.” They need to address the question of how are all individuals to be adequately productive when a tiny minority (productive capital owners) produce a major share and the vast majority (labor workers), a minor share of total products and services, and thus, how do we get from a world in which the most productive factor—physical capital—is owned by a handful of people, to a world where the same factor is owned by a majority—and ultimately 100 percent—of the consumers, while respecting all the constitutional rights of present capital owners?

    The problem is that we simply do not have anyone presenting or discussing the central issue that I have been raising about how the system furthers concentrated ownership of productive capital economic growth, while leaving the vast majority of people essentially enslaved in labor tasks exponentially being destroyed or degraded by technological innovation and invention––the result of tectonic shifts in the technologies of production and the steady off-loading of American manufacturing and jobs.

    Where is the media and academia who have remained silent on this pressing issue? Where are those leaders that can be supported for serving the public interest, and where is the money to mount presidential, senatorial, and congressional campaigns that won’t behold them to special interests? This is problematic!

    Sadly, after a half-century, we have no leaders with a growth strategy that could restore the economic productiveness of the American economy. The growth strategy I have presented is not new, but it has not yet registered in the minds of leaderless politicians and their advisors from the left to the right of the political spectrum and a population of people who have been mis-educated and mis-led by conventional economists from all the conventional schools of economics. It is the ONLY growth strategy that will work to keep America competitive with the rest of the world.


    We need to start with enacting and implementing the policies and programs identified in the Capital Homestead Act ( We need new justice-committed leaders, especially those who want to end the corruption built into our exclusionary system of monopoly capitalism––the main source of corruption of any political system, democratic or otherwise. They will need to advocate the need to radically overhaul the Federal tax system and monetary policies and institute proposals to get money power to the 99 percent of American citizens who now only rely on their labor worker earnings––which are constantly being eroded. Under the Just Third Way more just and simple tax system, the following is proposed:

    • Eliminate all tax loopholes and subsidies,

    • Provide an exemption of $100,000 for a family of four to meet their ordinary living needs,

    • Encourage corporations to pay out all their profits as taxable personal incomes to avoid paying corporate income taxes and to finance their growth by issuing new full dividend payout shares for broad-based citizen ownership,

    • Eliminate the payroll tax on workers and their employers, but

    • Pay out of general revenues for all promises for Social Security, Medicare, Medicare, government pensions, health, education, rent and subsistence vouchers for the poor until their new jobs and ownership accumulations provide new incomes to substitute for the taxpayer dollars to fill these needs.

    • The tax rate would be a single rate for all incomes from all sources above the personal exemption levels so that the budget could be balanced automatically and even allow the government to pay off the growing unsustainable long-term debt, but the poor would pay the first dollar over their exemption levels as the hedge fund operator and others now earning billions of dollars from capital gains, dividends, rents and other property incomes which under some tax proposals would be exempted from any taxes.

    • As a substitute for inheritance and gift taxes, a transfer tax would be imposed on the recipients whose holdings exceeded $1 million, thus encouraging the super-rich to spread out their monopoly-sized estates to all members of their family, friends, servants and workers who helped create their fortunes, teachers, health workers, police, other public servants, military veterans, artists, the poor and the disabled.

    • The Federal Reserve would stop monetizing unproductive debt, including bailouts of banks “too big to fail” and Wall Street derivatives speculators, and

    • Begin creating an asset-backed currency that could enable every man, woman and child to establish a Capital Homestead Account or “CHA” (a super-IRA or asset tax-shelter for citizens) at their local bank to acquire a growing dividend-bearing stock portfolio to supplement their incomes from work and all other sources of income.

    • The CHA would process an equal allocation of productive credit to every citizen exclusively for purchasing full-dividend payout shares in companies needing funds for growing the economy and private sector jobs for local, national and global markets,

    • The shares would be purchased on credit wholly backed by projected “future savings” in the form of new productive capital assets as well as the future marketable goods and services produced by the newly added technology, renewable energy systems, plant, rentable space and infrastructure added to the economy.

    • Risk of default on each stock acquisition loan would be covered by private sector capital credit risk insurance and reinsurance, but

    • Would not require citizens to reduce their funds for consumption to purchase shares.

    The end result is that citizens would become empowered as owners to meet their own consumption needs and government would become more dependent on economically independent citizens, thus reversing current global trends where all citizens will eventually become dependent for their economic well-being on our only legitimate monopoly –– the State –– and whatever elite controls the coercive powers of government.

    It should be obvious to every American that the continual focus on full employment job creation means, “full toil and waste for all forever.”

    The question that requires an answer is now timely before us. It was first posed by binary economist Louis Kelso in the 1950s but has never been thoroughly discussed on the national stage. Nor has there been the proper education of our citizenry that addresses what economic justice is and what ownership is. Therefore, by ignoring such issues of economic justice and ownership, our leaders are ignoring the concentration of power through ownership of productive capital, with the result of denying the 99 percenters equal opportunity to become capital owners. The question, as posed by Kelso is: “how are all individuals to be adequately productive when a tiny minority (capital workers) produce a major share and the vast majority (labor workers), a minor share of total goods and service,” and thus, “how do we get from a world in which the most productive factor—physical capital—is owned by a handful of people, to a world where the same factor is owned by a majority—and ultimately 100 percent—of the consumers, while respecting all the constitutional rights of present capital owners?”

    Wow lots of commits. I want to say I live in the Philippines and yes its about 50% of the people out of work. But as far as globalizing things its so so wrong. As far as workers competing with each other. Thats so wrong because in the Philippines you can survive off of 1,2 or 3 dollars an hour. Really if the people here were making 3hrs it would be a good job but most don’t. I know a truck driver thats not even making 1dollar an hour. But him and his family survive. So its sad that they would compare jobs. No way in America can anyone survive off of that kind of money. Americans need to be making at least 15hr to have some kind of living and thats not middle class but it all depends on a person situation. Also people need to be smarter having kids and getting married before one is ready is wrong. They only hurt them selfs and their kids. People need to learn about money and learn how to save and not get into debt. This system if being brought down because out stupid government is in so much debt and it doesn’t care what going to happen to the people. But we don’t have to fellow them by making the same dunm mistakes. They system is falling apart but we can put our faith in God and listen to the bible he tells not to get into debt not fellow this system. And since there will not be enough jobs we need to make our own system and start helping each other. Creat our own jobs. They do it here in the Philippines Americans can do it also.

  • BFH

    It’s sad that people some as young as 25 have known decent economic times. However, the fact is that those and all older than that will NEVER know economic times as good as they used to be. Our children and grand children will find it remarkable that there was a time when you just went and filled out an application and then reported to work. This is a whole societal change and few are even noticing it. My 3 grand boys aged 5,7 and 9 are screwed.

    “As RT recently reported, the truth is that more than half of recent US university graduates are unemployed or very underemployed. So much for the mantra that “education is the answer.”

    “Education is the answer” serves the colleges and universities who want the tuition payments. It serves the companies who make student loans. It helps the offshoring corporations disguise that they are the main cause of unemployment.

    Education is not the answer when high value-added, high wage manufacturing and professional service jobs, such as software engineering, are moved offshore in order to enhance short-term profits for shareholders and multi-million dollar bonuses for CEOs, while domestic employment and purchasing power are destroyed. Unless American university graduates can emigrate to China and India, there is no one to employ them. Yet, we still hear the call to run up student loan debts beyond the ability of salaries to repay the loans. “–Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Well, the time will come when there will be only these two great parties, the Anarchists representing the laissez faire doctrine and the Socialists representing the extreme view on the other side, and when that time comes I am an Anarchist.”–William Graham Sumner

      Not a doctor or a lawyer!

      I am a aircraft mechanic (A&P). I once made $65,000 a year overhauling passenger jets for a prestigious airline. Now I was turned down by a local airport for a job refueling prop aircraft. The airline I worked for is overhauling its fleet at ST Aerospace in Singapore!

      I applied for a job bucking rivets at a repair station here in the US. They had 1 job, 300 applicants 250 A&P candidates and they hired a high school dropout at minimum wage.

      You see, I am a professional mechanic and the employers want morons. Once they fought over the upper 10% now they fight over the lowest 10%… This leaves me in the position of being a professional job interviewee. I get plenty of calls but no offers.

      So when you say there are “TOO MANY” jobs here, I will gladly trade places with you!

    A Kill Zone is used when there is to many of them and few of you. You set apart an area to weaken, intimidate ,confuse,disarm,restrict movement and money. Once the snare is closed by an event there is no place to hide or escape….
    A economic event of an surprise extreme injustice is the best way for this. As the effected fight each other and not the government in general. This brings out hidden weapons and used up limited ammo. As the government ASAP close gun stores and means for gathering ammo. It makes sense to stay back a week as they did with the King riots. The idea is to kill the strongest resistance first of about 25% of the western world as to show authority killing under public law 102-14. Then sweep the rest after.

    You had me until you tried to blame it on Obama. I have been saying the same things for the last 20 years. We are entering the post industrial age here in the US where the very same industrialization that created the middle class is replacing the same workers that make up the middle class. Automation and computers will ultimately replace many jobs.

    If we ever hope to have any where near “full” employment, then we need to go to a 30 hour work week for example. Tax deductions based on public service.

    “U.S. workers can’t compare with low wage workers on the other side of the world. It is simply no contest.” I dont agree, as an employer I can tell you there is a vast difference in the quality you will receive outside the USA. Foreign employees are mostly poor quality and it will destroy a business’ productivity by trying to pay less rather than pay the most and get the best. Since I have started paying the most per hour I have the most talented workers and the work is completed in 1/10 of the time, done the right way, and even better than I imagined. Your case might ring true for some industries but definitely not all.

  • Mach

    Hiring workers has nothing to do with hw much profit a company makes or how much cash they have. Hiring is based on increasing demand in the market for the goods or service the company produces. When the number of employees can not produce to meet the demand, and the demand is forecast to stay strong, a company hires new employees. The fact remains that the demand fir goods and services continues to decline across most sectors so comany’s not seeing increased demand are not going to hire. There is no increased demand because there is no recovery.

  • bob

    Profits have nothing to do with hiring. Business trims expenses to make profit or they go out of business. Business hires people when the demand for their goods or services can not be met with current employees. The demand in the market place over all continues to decline. There is no job recovery because there is no increase in demand for goods and services.
