    As someone whose job it is to hire people for a business I can tell you that when your interviewing someone middle aged and older there is nothing funny about watching their face sink when you tell them what you can pay and you can’t give them more then thirty hours per week.

    Cora: American industry has exported the job to make that ladder, and minimum wage is all “corporates” want to pay. When you have college graduates, even Masters and PhDs put out of work, in engineering etc, not just “liberal arts”, looking for work that has ALSO been exported, or they’ve been replaced by cheaper workers brought in from China, your “more education” argument is moot.

    Get some more education and climb the ladder
    Doesn’t always work. After making many millions for my company, after 15 years my job (and all the other American programmers) were outsourced to Indian workers on visas. That was one of my own personal experiences on Republican policies at work, and others in my LAN of IT professionals experienced similar stories. The Republican policies over the last few decades have been destroying the middle class, and all too often Republicans are able to successfully blame the victims while finding more creative ways to increase the damage.
    Going to an exclusive policy of Supply Side economics doesn’t work. “Getting more education” isn’t all that wise when (1) it’s too expensive, and (2) the competition for scarce jobs depresses salaries.
    Less jobs = less cash to spend = less demand… and it’s a vicious spiral that is one helluva more powerful market force than the same old same-o “Trickle Down” crap that the Republicans are still offering up as a solution.
