Oh yeah, we'll keep it up.Its become a habit.. after an initial gasp concerning the real cost of practicing what you preach. Well we will as long as the hubby remains in that 47% of full time employed folks!
Id love to see a massive shift in things as in a positive bubble burst.. and would love to see the pendulum swing back to communities caring about and serving their own community.. but it only seems to have gotten worse in the last 2 decades. Hope our China addiction implodes in my lifetime though!
I have a real hard time finding the right numbers to really assess this thread.. If you take the claim of 47% ft employed, the numbers of pt employed, seasonally employed, those on welfare, those on unemployment and those who have run out of extension on unemployment and the current percentage of "unemployed".....and he population as it is after the census.. the numbers do NOT add up.
