    The market creates the jobs. Of course government actions and policies can help the free market private sector create more jobs.
    Allowing me to keep more of the $ I MAKE in the 2 businesses I own would be a good start for job creation. Sending my $ to DC is the worst thing that could happen for any job creation on my end.
    We are fast becoming a nation of village idiots.

    Sending your $ to the District of Criminals does create jobs......for unproductive bureaucrats!

    well, under George W Bush, the government created more jobs than the private sector

    Pretty sure it was the government, and not the market, that created all those jobs at Dept of Ed and DHS.

    we're becoming a nation of lazy, unionized government workers, and the Republicans are doing nothing to stop it

    What percentage of American workers belong to unions?

    Have unions ever done anything good?

    I belong to a union and have done so for 20 years in my job and the union has done nothing except take money from my check. The union I belong to has no power so our employer has no fear of the union.

    Private sector is 7.2% of workers. Total is 12.3%
    Union Membership Drops 10%, Endangering Influence - WSJ.com

    It depends on what you mean by "ever". But in the last 40 years the only things unions have done is drive large employers out of business and raise the cost of doing business.

    Be prepared for the countless arguments that this is not true and when they do just point out that you work for a private employer which is a job created by another person.

    Off dramatically in the private sector but spreading like wild fire in the public (government) sector.
