Twenty-six million Americans are working part time, many owing much to poor economic conditions and government disincentives to work full time. Adding in the adults working part time who want full time work but can't find it and adults not currently in the working force but who say they would return were conditions better, and the unemployment rate rises from 6.1 percent to more than 12 percent.

These forces combine to cap wages for workers making goods and services that primarily serve U.S. markets and compete with imports, while wages rise for workers with skills needed in industries selling products in global markets, such as in advanced manufacturing, international finance and a broad range of technology services.

It's no surprise that the average family's real income continues to drop, and the gap between the wealthiest and the rest of us widens.

The ruling elevates the rights of a FOR-PROFIT CORPORATION over those of its women employees and opens the door to all manner of claims that a company can refuse services based on its owner’s religion. Think about the ramifications: As Justice Ginsberg’s stinging dissent pointed out, companies run by Scientologists could refuse to cover antidepressants, and those run by Jews or Hindus could refuse to cover medications derived from pigs (such as many anesthetics, intravenous fluids, or medications coated in gelatin).
But that won’t happen because Justice Alito said so! He must have a very solid foundation for this belief. In fact, it’s so solid he doesn’t even bother to explain it in this opinion. Maybe he had a sincerely held religious objection to explaining it? Or maybe his opinion on this matter is simply based on partisan bullshit?“If I say it enough times, it will true!”
I understand conservative economic policies work along the same lines.
Takei then applies The Muslim Test to the ruling:
In this case, the owners happen to be deeply Christian; one wonders whether the case would have come out differently if a Muslim-run chain business attempted to impose Sharia law on its employees.
The Muslim Test is very simple: Take any conservative claim that they are being oppressed by evil secularists or rival religions, replace “Christianity” with “Islam” and see if the offended party is still quite as gung-ho. Conversely, take any demand for special privileges, insist that they be granted to Islam as well and watch the odd conservative head explode.

here is the difference.....

there is no comparison between imposing Sharia law and paying for birth control pills.....

any Muslim company that did so would have no customers other than other Muslims and dedicated Obamabots.....

What does "for profit corporation" have to do with anything?
Here's the idiot Teabagger asking stupid quesions.

"For profit' means they operate in the public square, where their religious beliefs have no place and no standing.

They are not a church or private group. They sell merchandise in stores to the general public, most of whom don't hold the owners religious beliefs.

This is long standing SC doctrine. Never before has a SC ruled that religious beliefs have a place in the public square.

That's right, never before. This court has carved new religious decrees into the Constitution

So much for you nitwits complaining about 'activist judges'.

This SC is as activist a court as we've ever had.

i guess Teabags only hate activist judges when they disagree with the ruling.

As I recall, the Teabags were calling the SC an activist court when they upheld the ACA.

Now they love them.

" Arizona's Private Prisons: A Bad Bargain

State taxpayers have thrown away millions on shoddy facilities--and legislators think the solution is to bar them from oversight.
Sasha Abramsky
April 4, 2012 | This article appeared in the April 23, 2012 edition of The Nation.

In mid-February, the Arizona chapter of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) released a report on the impact of private prisons in the state. Private Prisons: the Public’s Problem concluded that Arizona overpaid for private prison services between 2008 and 2010 to the tune of&#8232;$10 million, and that the services it received were shoddy at best: malfunctioning alarm systems, fences with holes in them, staff who didn’t follow basic procedures and many other failings. All told, the state’s auditor general documented 157 serious security failings across five facilities that hold in-state prisoners.(There are three additional private prisons.) At least twenty-eight riots were also reported.(The report’s authors hesitated to give exact numbers on the latter, concluding that private prison administrators tried to hide evidence of riots from the public.)&#8233;

Since 1987, Arizona’s Department of Corrections has been legislatively mandated to produce cost and quality reviews for its private prisons, in part to judge how they compare with state-run facilities. The data on costs were collected, but in recent years, it took a lawsuit by the AFSC for the Department of Corrections to release quality comparison data. Finally, in December it complied. The results were damning.&#8233;

“The main purpose of a prison is to reduce crime,” said the AFSC’s report.“The only measurement available of how well a prison performs this function is its recidivism rates.” Yet,“none of the corporations operating in Arizona measure recidivism.” The report noted that at the private facilities there were higher staff turnover and lower staff qualifications, as well as more cases of violence than in state prisons.&#8233;..."

<quoted text> Jobs Growth Improves, But Hardly Enough
Thursday, 03 Jul 2014 09:17 AM
By Peter Morici Twitter @pmorici1
The economy added 288,000 jobs in June. Overall jobs creation has improved in 2014, but it remains far short of the 390,000 needed each month to keep up with population growth and genuinely reduce unemployment, and well less than the pace accomplished during the Reagan–Clinton prosperity.
The jobless rate is down to 6.1 percent from the recession peak of 10 percent, but most of the reduction has been accomplished by adults quitting the labor market — neither working nor looking for work. If the same percentage of adults were in the labor force today as when Presidents Obama or George W. Bush took office, the jobless rate would be 10.2 percent and 12.2 percent, respectively.
Three problems have limited jobs creation during both the Bush and Obama years — slow economic growth overall; a disinclination to control the border with Latin America or disappoint businesses' appetite for cheaper skilled labor from Asia; and the work disincentives imposed by social programs intended to redress income inequality and help the disadvantaged.
In this century, GDP growth has averaged 1.7 per year, whereas during the Reagan – Clinton period it was 3.4 percent. The reluctance of both Bush and Obama to confront Chinese protectionism and currency manipulation and open up offshore oil for development has created a huge trade deficit, which sends consumer demand and jobs abroad.
Efforts to bring jobs back to America are frustrated by government regulations that are more burdensome than necessary to accomplish their legitimate objectives, and skilled labor shortages. Paradoxically in an economy with 9.5 million unemployed and actively looking for work, too many lack skills appropriate to the 21st century economy and seem to lack adequate incentives to acquire those skills.
The combination of free and subsidized healthcare, the earned income tax credit and other government programs whose benefits phase out as incomes rise, imposes high effective marginal tax rates on lower-income working families. These often encourage prime-working-age adults to continue in part-time work, rather than take full-time employment and lose benefits, or to not work at all.
Many have little incentive to acquire skills in demand. Efforts at improving primary and secondary education and access to college focus too much on basic skills and granting degrees without much concern for the course of study selected. Simply, most reforms have not adequately emphasized creating skill-ready graduates for a rapidly changing economy.
Immigrants — legal and illegal combined — are all too eager to fill the skills void and have captured virtually all the jobs created since 2000. Meanwhile, the share of the working-age, native-born population holding a job has significantly fallen.
Baby boomer retirements are not appreciably driving down the adult employment rate — the proportion of working Americans between the ages of 65 and 69 has risen from 23 percent to 30 percent since 2000. It's prime-working-age Americans who are not showing up. For example, one in six adult males between the ages of 25 and 64 is not working.

things to change...

'Democratic Governor Jerry Brown once fought to keep out South Vietnamese refugees from being delivered to his state during his first stint as governor of California in the 1970’s, and although he remains silent on the crisis that is happening on the southern border of his state, Brown’s position, via legislation previously signed, on illegal immigrants from Mexico, Central and South America is much more favorable than the cool response he gave to the Vietnamese refugees who had escaped the tyrannical Viet Cong.'
