JOBS: A permanent state of adiosis...........from Rico

Once upon a time in America, virtually anybody with a high school (12th grade) education who was willing to work hard could get a good job. Fifty years ago, a good job enabled you to own a home, buy a car, take annual vacations, and retire with a decent pension.
Those days are over. Long gone.


Outsourcing. Offshoring.
[read: the work was sent elsewhere, someplace else. Gone. Good jobs have assumed a permanent state of adiosis.]

Thank the 'global economy' and one-worlders like Georgie Soros. NAFTA. WTO.
The "we'll work with our brains, 'they' can work with their hands and get dirty" meme was a con game, and Joe & Jane sixpack have been 'had'............

For many today, the fairytale a.k.a. "the American Dream" is over, and it's not coming back.
