There are 4 comments on the www.theatlantic.com story from Dec 6, 2012, titled The End of Middle Class Growth: What It Means for the Future of Work, Family, and the Economy. In it, www.theatlantic.com reports that:
There is no modern precedent for America's stalled middle class -- or for the double detachment from work and marriage among low-earning men.
If the American economy were an automobile, you would say the transmission is failing. The engine works, but not all wheels are getting power. To put the matter less metaphorically: The economy no longer reliably and consistently transmits productivity gains to workers. The result is that many millions of Americans, in particular less-skilled men, are leaving the workforce, a phenomenon the country has never seen before on the present scale.

America is leaving jobs sitting on the table.
Why is it that an American living in Chicago can't find a job, but a Mexican with no english, education, or SSN can travel 2,000 miles in the back of banana truck and land a job in the same neighborhood?
Are they smarter, stronger, more motivated?
Perhaps illegal immigrants are just not handicapped with a sense of American entitlement and birthright.
A twenty year old man who thinks he's too good to start at the bottom and get a little dirt under his fingernails is chronically disabled. The guy from out of town who can't speak english is more capable mentally to move ahead.
