We blame unions. We blame "big government". We blame those commie socialist tree-hugging liberals. We blame whatever and whomever we are told to blame.
Some of us believe politicians - on a state and national level - who spout various iterations of "Open For Business".
I want to believe that we as citizens of our states and nation are smarter than to believe all of this, motivated enough to seek out the facts, have sufficient critical thinking skills to sort through the hype and disinformation that is being spoon-fed to us. Believing otherwise is too frightening, frankly.
Don't get me wrong. I believe that jobs WILL be created. The question, then, in my mind and the minds of many others, is this: will these be "living wage" jobs? Jobs that will allow us to take the occasional vacation, educate our children, save for our futures?
What if I told you this - would you believe it?
Very likely, things are going to get WORSE - not better.
Today I am going to provide you with a link to some information that may shock you. I hope and pray that it will open eyes to what is really going on. I hope, if you are even a little concerned about jobs being created, you will take the 5 minutes it will require to read it.
