    To me, this cartoon was just as relevant in 1989 and 1991 as it is now, only the years have changed.

    the official unemployment figures are always a lie! Reworked statistics to justify our misery and blame the unemployed for not finding jobs.

    work as we know it is on the endangered species list. overproduction and automation are the cancers killing global capitalism.

    we must fight for full employment, 30 hours work for 40 hours pay, universal unionization, and the ending of poverty. c’mon y’all, exercise your gift of vision.

    Interesting that all but one of the states on the above list are low population states, mostly farm states, with the exception of Virginia, which is heavily federal employees.Utah is Mormon, and all but Hawaii and Virginia are northern states that people are leaving for the better weather in warmer states. Even without the shale boom, ND would still have low employment.
