About the Proposed Job Solutions
Other than the manufacturing jobs, which were lost over a decade ago, the model for American jobs was not established on a solid economic foundation to begin with. There was no reason, nor call for service sector jobs to be a full 40% of the job market. call centers and consulting, was never a NEEDED niche, to base an economy on. Neither one generates any real revenue for the country. It is not something you can package, pass around and keep generating income from, like sugar, pork bellies or a circuit board.
Until such time as someone admits that the model is broken, there never will be recovery.
And, of course the rich and wealthy and upper middle class have no compassion / understanding of the job loss. Nearly 90% of the jobs lost in America were all entry level and or low paying jobs. What is really getting everyone’s goat, and has become a huge backlash to all this, the question of illegal immigrants taking low paying and or entry level jobs is now in the sniper scopes of all of the state treasurers. The issue can no longer be ignored.
With this in mind, several states are now trying to pass / discuss an immigration policy to uphold enforcement of the immigration laws a la Arizona. So all the people gnashing their teeth and clawing their hair out over that state, need look no further than their own state capital to see the same legislation come to roost.
The problem really cannot be ignored. And, it is a definite solution to the jobless problem. Illegal immigrants take the low paying / entry level jobs; pay no taxes; AND to add injury to insult – send a whopping 80% of the income back home to Mexico, making it the 3rd base of Mexican GDP. Those figures cannot be ignored any longer in this economic debacle.
