Maybe 20 million illegal aliens illegally working in the country might effect employment. Perhaps two wars costing presently $1 trillion may also have a dampening effect on economic growth. Then again, maybe, the capitalist class taking all the good manufacturing jobs to countries wil low labor costs and few taxes and rules may also be involved in our jobless situation. -- Gereng — Fri June 4th 4:29p.m.
Excellent point, Gereng. I am pretty sure that those are all factors in my difficulty getting even an entry-level job. I have many years of work experience in foodservice, retail, and customer service, and so should have no problem getting an entry-level job. I was at a local fast-food outlet here in Eugene the other day, and I could see that the majority of workers in the kitchen were Latino/Latina, and couldn't help but wonder how many of them were of dubious immigration status.
