Because that seems to always be the battle cry of these morons on the left who can’t see the reason stuff like this happens is their policies and the implementation of said policies. Case in point revelations like One in five U.S. workers was laid off in the past five years and about 22% of those who lost their jobs still haven’t found another one, which shows you what happens whenever government assumes the role of picking winners & losers. Of course they can’t see the forest for the trees, even when the information stares them in the face.
Those who did find work had a difficult time with their job search and the effects of unemployment, the survey by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University found.
Nearly 40% said it took more than seven months to find employment and about one in five of laid-off workers said all they could find was a temporary position.
Almost half — 46% — of the estimated 30 million layoff victims who found new jobs said they paid less then their old ones, according to the survey of 1,153 U.S adults done over the summer.
“While job growth has been consistent, it has been insufficient to produce enough full-time jobs for everyone,” the study said.
Despite a declining overall unemployment rate, the study says, long-term joblessness has remained a major problem as the U.S. economy has slowly recovered from the deep recession, which technically ended in June 2009.
The study notes that 3 million Americans in August had been unemployed for more than six months. Although that figure has been declining, it still is high.
The effects of long-term unemployment can be traumatic, the survey found.
What a pile of bullshit. The economy has sucked, and continues to suck, despite the fucking LSM’s propaganda to the contrary, and it is directly tied to the burdensome government meddling in the private sector. Whatever good has happened comes despite the people in charge’s efforts that have tried to deny that growth (oil industry anyone?). Our system is one of crony capitalism: one where the powerful and connected buy favors and gain huge benefits from people in government that in turn profit and keep power from selling these favors. This system prevents real economic growth and indubitably destroys the middle class and opportunities for those in or trying to get into the middle class.
That’s why the number of jobless people, which should include people that no longer get counted because they are off the government unemployment benefit dole, is staggering, and the trend so ugly. Most of these new jobs the LA Times want to pretend are responsible for the faux growth the left has been peddling since black Jesus took power, have been low end service sector jobs too. And it is not just that have lost jobs that have suffered. The employed, unless they were in the public sector, have also been hammered. The reasons are blatant as well. Over regulation to serve the left’s various agendas and government power grabs masquerading as social improvement projects, things like Obamacare or the EPA’s assault on fossil fuels, all have drastic economic consequences.
If we had a republican in charge the LSM would be telling us that we were in a recession. Remember that whenever you see these fluff pieces that refuse to acknowledge that the bad times come from the left’s policies and practices.
