US person here, so might not apply to you others.

Its so simple, yet no one will do it, no one in the coming elections will suggest it, but it will work, i guarantee it.

Its so simple.

You go to every town and city and abolish... well i don't know what to call them. Corporation funded market places? What i mean is take away all the fast food chains, wal-marts, shoppers, giants, food lions, peebles, JC pennies, all that crap. Why? Because then only local businesses can buy and sell. That means, more jobs for everyone because the small mom and pop shops will stand a chance, be able to employe more people, trade skill companies will be able to lend their skills to more local businesses and high more people, so on and so forth. Its so simple, yet people are too addicted to their easy one stop and go shops that they'd rather support those companies than local business, which will make a majority of the jobs.

So much derp on people.

pew pew on the global elite.

Want to know how to make more jobs........

Stop consumerism.....stop buying useless junk you DO NOT need.

This will bring business back to your present most of what we buy is produces in China and other parts of Asia. This is because its cheap (was cheap) labor.

Producing tons of useless junk each year is pointless and ruins economies.

Making arms for a large scail war is a tried and tested way
of getting people to work. just wait a couple of years before you
get involved. sorry the last part was a little uncalled for.
but war is good for manufacturing jobs and that is realy
what the us needs. to get back some of it's manufacturing
that it has out-souced.
If only everyone didn't have those pesky nuclear weapons

i don't know i think people have to buy junk. If people aren't buying junk people who make junk make money. Sure people don't need junk at all, but if you think about, lets say there is an artist who makes tiki sculptures. If people buy his junk he'll make money. Eventually if enough people buy his junk he can hire an apprentice who will make more junk for people to buy.

Meh maybe i'm wrong idk, its friday and i want to go home.

In short what the OP stated will do all of those things.
But I agree consumerism and commercialism is destroying and draining our country.

they then branch out...

Mom n pop Gas Station becomes, MOM n POPs Gas Chain...

problem starts all over.

OP was talking about jobs....i presume he means in his country?

Under communist regimes like china, you are given a job, a home...but very little else. They have jobs....because they make all this junk...ipads, shoes, electronics, plus numerous other products.

If people were to live within their means, and only buy things they needed there would be more money in your country...more money to invest in business...more jobs.

Until people realize they are to blame for the lack of jobs, we will continue on this broken path. Keep buying stuff you dont need...keep seeing your job market decreasing.

THose are all low paying jobs.

IN order to create jobs we need jobs that pay well. Not simply low paying service oriented jobs.

You are correct in the effects of Corporations and the nature of the jobs they're providing to the community.

But, with the current unemployment levels, there is obviously not many alternatives.

I feel that what we as Americans need to do is to become less reliant upon others and more self sufficient.

Not looking for a paycheck but starting our own businesses and becoming employers ourselves.

For the day of The Industrial Revolution , the factory job and the gold watch at retirement are long gone.
