The Loss of Jobs in the US has been our own doing and is due to the lack of competitiveness...
This trend has been progressing for some time now.
When after WWII, the United States began focusing on profitability instead of quality.
And how the likes of Sony and Toyota have become industry leaders by building quality products.
Whereas the likes of RCA and Zenith are out of the electronics business all together due to building inferior ones.
There is a reason why we have seen a steady decline in jobs AND the wealth of this nation has been consolidated into an even smaller percentage of
And even though some don't believe it, it has little if anything to do with Democrats or politics in general.
Take at Any graduating MBA candidate these days is really only taught how to "downsize" and "restructure" which translates to lowering the bottom
line via layoffs..for profits and NOT by saving customers and subsequently jobs for the sake of building a quality product.
Look at the electronics industry which we invented, as well as computers. Is any of it made domestically ?
Hardly if any are.
Politics don't create jobs, businesses do. Successful businesses at that.
In summary, this trend of declining jobs has been ongoing for quite some time now.
And all for the sake of profits and why the concentration of wealth in this nation has been sequestered into an even smaller portion of the US
population at the expense of available jobs.
