HC Wants Workforce Skills and Job Training - Every American should be able to learn the skills they need to compete and succeed. Source.

Author's Note: We Have a 'No Jobs' Problem!

"...the idea that you can just have better training and then there are all these jobs, all these places where there are shortages and we just need the trained people is fundamentally an

evasion." ... " The core problem is that there aren't enough jobs. If you help some people, you could help them get the jobs, but then someone else won't get the jobs." Lawrence Summers, The Future of Work (2015)


Good News Well-Being is More Important Than Income

  • Our society's stability has allowed U.S. productivity consistently increased which is a key to individual well-being. Think how the public safety net has increased since the 1930's and the success of the federal children's bureau. Who wants to give up SS and Medicare? Why do some always want to cut the other guys government benefits. Think economic distress in Russia, Europe, and even Japan and Germany.

  • Scientific achievements have continuously added to citizen well-being. Think public health, smart phones, streaming audio-video, Gillette Stadium ... See Health Problems Solved

  • Personal Income which is a function of nature and nurture has increased continuously if not always rapidly. Think Russia, China, and Europe's really slow recovery from the Great Recession.

Author's Note: Were it not for safety net created over the last 100 years the problem associated would displacement of worker would rank with those created by the great farm migration to the cities that began 150 years ago.
