The number of American jobs is falling, but the number of Americans living in poverty is rising.
And those jobs are being outsourced to countries with less labor protections, and less regulation.
A lot of the jobs that are going overseas are not being replaced by more American ones.
This is an article that is going to change the way you think about the economy, and how we live in it.
It’s not a new phenomenon.
We’ve been talking about it for years.
And it’s getting worse, because we have so much technology now.
I don’t think we’ve ever seen a country so disconnected from the world, and so disconnected to what we’re doing in it, to the rest of the world.
We have a big disconnect.
And that disconnect is driving us into a financial crisis that has the potential to tear us apart.
So we’re going to have to start looking at how we can make our economy work better for the middle class and the poor and the working class.
We’re going for the jobs of tomorrow, not the jobs tomorrow.
And we’re not going to make progress unless we’re willing to take on the challenges of the future.
There’s a great deal of frustration with the economy right now.
And the biggest problem we have is a lot of people who have been pushed out of the middle and the top, who are working longer hours, and have fewer benefits.
And people don’t have a lot to do with the rest.
We are in a crisis.
We should be trying to get back on the path to a strong economy, but right now it’s hard to get it done.
But we have to keep talking about how we’re moving forward.
We can’t afford to let this crisis define us forever.
I’m talking about the future, and not the past.
We’ll keep talking and pushing forward, but we’re gonna have to get the economy going again.
And you’ve heard a lot about how our job growth has slowed, that it’s down by about 8% in May.
And I think that is really concerning.
It is hard to believe that there’s not at least some economic growth in America.
But it’s actually down by 6%.
The number is down by over 8% since April.
So I think we need to talk about this.
We need to understand that we have a real problem, and we need a serious plan to fix it.
But right now, we’re getting hit with a big blow in the form of a loss of good jobs.
And right now we’ve got a lot on the line.
I know we’re working hard.
But you know what, I’ve got an 11-year-old daughter who is trying to save up for college.
And she is very concerned about her future.
And our economy is on the verge of collapse.
We just don’t know how long we’re supposed to have a recovery.
And this is not a time for complacency.
This isn’t a time to sit back and say, Well, it’s not gonna happen.
We haven’t had a job for 12 years, and if we can’t do this job now, what can we do next?
But right here at home, there are too many people who are struggling and working too long.
And too many of them are living in a bubble that we don’t understand.
And they’re getting older and they’re starting to see the impact of all this bad debt.
So there are lots of people out there struggling.
And so I want to make sure that we’re talking about those who need help, and making sure that our government and our business community is taking steps to help them.
We want them to know that if they need help to pay the bills and make ends meet, that there are people in our country who will help them and give them the support that they need to get through this tough time.
And there’s no shame in being able to take care of yourself.
There are no secrets.
You can do it.
You just have to find out how to do it well.
We know what happens when you have an economy that doesn’t work.
We hear a lot from you, and I know that many of you are hurting, and you’re hurting, too.
So, I want us to make it clear that the economy is not working for the majority of Americans.
We don’t believe it works for the 1% of Americans who get rich off of the economy and the 1%.
We believe that it works very, very differently for the people who work the economy for us.
The problem is, we have an administration that doesn toot their own horn, that doesn a lot, and says, Well let’s just do it for them.
But they don’t.
We do not believe in this trickle-down, trickle-up trickle-off thinking that they’ve promoted for decades.
We believe in a government that works for everybody, not just the 1%, and that everybody has a stake in the prosperity of this
