    How to Reduce US Unemployment?

    in Politics

    It is absolutely ridiculous to hear government and business leaders take about unemployment like there is not immediate solution. The job creation, job creators lies is a scam. Unemployment people don't need meetings from elected officials. Meetings where the give notes to the media, and the media pass along their lies. Spread the lies regarding why there are not jobs. Fact is there are no jobs because the managers are not hiring. Managers are not hiring because the CEOs are on strike against US workers. CEOs are on strike because elected officials, the keepers of the gates for citizens, have been paid and have signed pledges giving allegiance to corporations.
