Re: Think unemployment was bad before the election?
Employment - or lack thereof - is a result of many seemingly unconnected factors. The overall economic health, foreign trade, immigration, regulations, attitudes, drugs, population demographics, birth and death rates, technology, increasing competition abroad, recycling, education, you name it. Unemployment is a symptom of deeper issues and until some rational balance is restored it will only continue to get worse. There is no political will to seriously address these issues, because to do so would require a level of ruthlessness that politicians are unwilling to embrace. All politicians want to be loved - or at least liked. For them to do what is necessary is against their very nature.
