Capitalism offers nothing for young people,
Bellingham Bill said:
"capitalism" aside, our $500B/yr trade deficit is a sucking chest wound to the middle class.
shows if you want productive employment in this country, FUCK YOU
FUCK YOU TOO
How about a cushy Federal job:
FUCK YOU; Federal jobs are at 1960s levels
How about some part time hours in retail?
FUCK YOU ESPECIALLY
As for retail jobs, there is one retail job for 13 people:
while back in the 1990s 1 in 12 people had a retail job.
shows our bloated health care sector has plenty of jobs, +30% since 2000.
But that's not capitalism, or we should hope not since its economic rents are 2X the rest of the world:
the bigger picture is we've allowed rent-seekers to totally take over our economy, in health care, housing, and energy. Well more than half of young people have to rent, and this rent gauntlet simply beats everyone's disposable income out of them.
And if we do try to buy a home, we have to outbid everyone else for a place, meaning we have to stretch our finances to the breaking point just to find somewhere to live.
And on top of all this we have corporations clearing $1.9T now:
showing how we're turning into a corporatocratic oligarchy.
Corporations pay next to nothing in income tax, how come Congress doesn't tax these fat cats?
Everyone knows the answer to that.
