    Sadly, one of the problems with conservative policies of globalization, down sizing, and attacking unions, and keeping the minimum wage floor dropping is, though you do managed to destroy the jobs of those whose companies have left. You do manage to keep salaries down, and dropping. You reduce unions.

    But things like schools, and government jobs at all levels, still have unions, thus they get raises that come more closely to the inflation rate. The rest of us, however, are getting screwed by all the trade agreements.

    But just wait. They'll figure out a way to screw them too someday. Perhaps little television screens teaching classes, or like a new movie advertisment, people connected to electronics, allowing them to do jobs in a AI environment, running metal drones, where the labor can be anywhere.

    Yes, republicans are determined to screw every last one of you, and eventually end up with all the power, and be true American royalists. Hell, they've got most republicans set about to destroy their own lives through propaganda, thinking they are actually rich, or part of the we, or our, they seem to think actually includes themselves. Boy are they in for a surprise.

    Everybody hates government jobs, unless they have one! Good pay, good benefits, this ain't race to the bottom wal mart!
