Well is not going to happen is already happening my husband and many like him already got layoff from one of those two companies due to
obama budget cuts.
It is easy to talk about," fixing the economy"," balancing the economy", but unless you are in the same shoes of people like my husband
and others that are now unemployed you have not clue how things affect no only the lives of the people involved and the economy.
This lay off is only adding more bodies to the unemployment lines and welfare system
The income bracket that my husband was during his 30 years plus of employment first as a marine and then as a private contractor is the income
bracket that feeds the economy so welfare and government services are available for those that never work or are in the welfare working class
When you are a productive worker you are paying into the pot with taxes, as you do not need government services or government help.
States loses too, as they will have to add more into paying for unemployment for this working group of once productive bodies.
How does that help the economy? you don't have to be a genius to figure that one out.
In 30 years of been a productive working body my husband never received unemployment, now he does.
Our retirement account is almost depleted, how that helps the economy? and our savings account almost gone, how that helps the economy?
Been Dependant on the government for help at the expenses of other hard working productive bodies is a burden and just increases the working poor
welfare state in the nation, how that help the economy?
Obama seems to be the president that will be recognized for increasing to record numbers of the welfare state in the nation
And the economy will still be screw up. cutting jobs do not add anything to the economy, creating welfare class jobs do not improve working
standards and living standards it jobs keep eroding the nations reminding productive tax payers.
The truth is that the country is spending WAY TOO MUCH on military spending
and you and your husband should be thankful that
he had 30 years of paychecks from the military industry.
To get this country back in shape, some folks are going to face difficult times. MANY have already faced these difficult times numerous times
already. In the last 30 years that your husband had stable employment in that industry, do you know how many times the average worker had been forced
to find another profession and start ALL OVER from the BOTTOM AGAIN?? MANY TIMES over and over again.
So, consider your husband EXTREMELY LUCKY. The military spending is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY out of control and things must
change. Its LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG overdue.
People who are LUCKY enough to have enjoyed 30 years of employment in one profession or with one employer without losing their jobs need to
face the reality of the rest of the country. Those folks need to learn to SUCK IT UP like MANY other Americans who were MUCH more
unlucky over that length of time.
Folks who have gotten comfortable with having a stable employment fo 30 years have not faced the reality of the rest of us. They too will have to
learn how to SUCK IT UP in all honesty. The rest of us have sucked it up MANY times in the last 30 years!
Thats just the truth. Your husband was VERY LUCKY!!!!!!!!! Very lucky that we have had WAR-MONGERS for leaders in modern times past.
Besides, there are MUCH better professions out there where you can feel PRIDE in doing rather than working in the WAR industry anyways.
Its for the better of the country as a WHOLE. Its LONG OVERDUE!!!!!
