Squeezing the Last Drop of Productivity from the American Working Class – 18 Percent National Underemployment and why Wall Street and the Government are Cheering Your Financial Failure.
The American financial press cheered on Friday when “only” 36,000 jobs were lost in February. This if you haven’t noticed now passes for good economic news. The unemployment rate remained unchanged because the actual workforce continued to show a decline yet Wall Street somehow viewed this as positive developments. And why not? The middle class is under assault from every angle. Things are so twisted with propaganda that many Americans now believe that the banking elite are actually looking out for the well being of American workers.
