The Bush-Allen Economy
Well, I've been engaged in a job search which has required a tremendous amount of time and effort. The middle class jobs situation is not as rosy as many politicians, pundits and business "leaders" commonly claim.
The reality which I experience every day is that the Bush-Allen economy is shedding middle class jobs for Americans. Why do I say "Bush-Allen economy"? I say this because George Allen supports George Bush's economic and trade policies which destroy American middle class jobs and injure the interests of American working people. George Allen is among the sponsors of the so-called "SKIL bill" which will further increase the number of low-wage foreign white collar workers permitted entrance into the U.S. where they will be used to displace additional American workers and close further employment opportunities for Americans.
Earlier this week, in his latest article at Counterpunch, economist and writer Paul Craig Roberts said the economy is not doing well. In particular, I was struck by Dr. Roberts' comment that "American economists are yet to face up to the fact that offshoring high productivity, high value-added jobs that pay well and replacing them with waitresses and bartenders is a knife in the heart of the US economy."
