Pretty good. But lets forget that the current powers in Washington have done little to nothing to lower unemployment numbers except to quit counting those that have run out of benefits & or quit looking.<quoted text>
There's no unions in China and their wages still increased. How did that happen with no unions?
Supply and demand, that's how. When there's more work than workers, wages increase. When there's more workers than work, wages decrease.
That's the way it should work in our country, and it would work pretty good too. The problem here is we try to augment supply and demand with minimum wage increases, unions and illegal labor.
If we didn't keep throwing monkey wrenches into the works, supply and demand for employment would work out perfectly.
I think what's happening now is that unions are dying faster than ObamaCare. Wages decrease because again, too many workers and not enough work. Once again, we are slowly getting back into competition. We may not be making the kind of money we did years ago, but what's better, lower paying jobs or no jobs?
It's the message we conservatives have been trying to relay to the sheep for many years. They told us we were nuts. We were only looking out for our corporate buddies. We just wanted to see the rich get richer. And as usual, now they see we were right all along.
In my opinion, if there is any true lowering of unemployment it is mostly because companies are learning to deal with the new rules/situation.
If I haven't misunderstood, you imply that conservatives were only looking out for their corporate buddies. I would strongly suggest that just about every politician does that. A current example, Obama giving corporations a 1 yr extension on their contrabution But NOT the individual when the ACA does NOT allow any such action. Why have charges NOT been brought against Obama?
He picks & chooses what laws to act on such as Immigration.
They are their own best reason for term limits.
