    You can place that blame squarely on the backs of the private sector and their cronies in congress. Jobs that once paid $20 an hour now suddenly pay $10 with 75 people desperately applying for them. At the same time, CEO salary has gone up 400%. No one is getting raises or bonuses... exept for those at the top, but they sure as hell are doing the jobs of 3 people (themselves and the two poor slobs that got laid off previously). Hmmm... I see a correlation here. Our corporatist policies are directly responsible for this.

    I'm sure you have the evidence for every bit of this occuring over the past two years and aren't just blowing shit out of your ass. But just in case, let's see that evidence.

    The companies themselves and the executives are doing very fine. The rest of the workers in that company, not so much.
