People are unemployed because the government has destroyed the economy.
You know I just read through some of that big unemployment thread and the first thing the guy rattles off are the dozens of licenses required for him
to get a job.
Industry didn't impose those licenses, government did.
The government (particularly in the UK) has placed all manner of barriers in the way of people trying to find a job
The government has erected all manner of barriers to entry for new corporations to enter the market through regulations and taxes.
What people also don't realize are the employer paid payroll taxes have to be calculated for a new job position as if they were part of the persons
So, if I'm an employer and I can afford to spend 2000 a month on a new position, I start with that amount then I deduct MY share of HIS payroll taxes
to arrive at the amount I can hire him for. But when that amount goes below the mandated minimum wage, I can no longer create the position.
There's a billion ways the government has destroyed the economy. To list them all would take forever.
