Living Wage Jobs, Less Gun Violence, Living with Dignity are all charactistics that every American should be assured. Sadly, the class structure as it exists today nearly makes that impossible.
Americas’ financial implosion of 2008 rocked to the core of every Americans existance. Gone were the days when banks had any latitude for underwriting business loans or for that matter home loans.
While some may argue, I feel the vast majority of working age Americans are wanting and willing to work on a daily basis. As a teacher in a inner city high school I hear stories of parents not working because they are better off not working due to wage and hour availabilities. Less than 40 hours thus no insurance and minumum wage jobs thus not living wage jobs. Why bother working if no insurance, not enough pay and no future?
Currently, there are 100’s of American companies manufacturing their products in China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and other non Norht American contries. In those foreign countries is in excess of $5,000,000,000.
Granted these countries only play their employees only $3.00 to $4.00 per day, but one must also place a financial cost factor on the time of shipments to that country, ocean transportation costs, bad PR related to their manufacturing on foreign soil.
It is time that we reward companies for returning jobs to America. It is time we reward our unemployed for getting a job. It is time we make it possible for the undereducated to receive their education. It is time that we provide a dignified future for those destine to commit crimes. All this can be accomplished within the framework of the Free Enterprise System.
