As the Labor Day Holiday weekend comes to an end, here are a couple of brief jobs related thoughts. If the economy would rebound with jobs a plenty, regardless how anyone feels about the President, there would be an enormous amount of happy thankful folks across the country. With the unemployed or underemployed back in full employment, I dare say that some who did care would no longer care about the charges that Pres. Obama is a closet Muslim and/or that he is a socialist.
Currently, the government sector is where one would find employment action, while the private sector employment continues to dry up. Unions comprising more of government workers than workers in the private sector. Are we traveling further down that road where the destination is pure unadulterated socialism?
Taxpayers fund government employees’ salaries and benefits. The unions are pushing for tax increases especially on the rich to keep the salaries and benefits at the desired high levels. Liberal leftist unions do not seem to care that taxing the rich will slow down investments into private business development that spur jobs.
