Biden is touting how healthy the economy is after a more than 500,000 jobs added report for July, 2022. Gee. What causing so many to go back to work?
Ever consider that perhaps the driving force behind the phenomenon is not being able to afford food, fuel, and other life essentials?
How many retired senior citizens have been forced back into the job market? How about mothers who are raising children?
I’d like to see an analysis of this data, or better yet, a survey of the newly employed asking what factors drove them to seek employment this past month.
It is good for the economy, in general, when more people work. It is bad, however, for the quality of life and for society, in general, when our senior citizens become WalMart greeters, and our mothers leave their children to their own devices because they must work to feed the family, fill the gas tank, heat or cool their home, and pay for health, car, and homeowner insurance.
Was Friday’s jobs report good news or bad news? You tell me.
