the price of gas at the pump, heating fuel, food and just about every thing else booms also?

Let me get this right. The market almost crashes in 08 and gas prices drop to a buck a gallon.

Hmmm... Just need a pic. Maybe it would make more sense.

I'm sure the Fat Cats not producing nothing can explain???

I am sure they can explain

They would say something like, government expansion, out of control government spending, out of control government debt, continuing threats of further taxation, further and very expensive government regulations, fraud, outright corruption, and outright stupid, foolish and careless legislation have caused us to pull back our investment in America, hire less and do everything we can to keep what we have.

Why should anyone invest in the USA under those conditions?

Just need to vent. Most employers like all i work(ed) for will not offer a 401 because they are to cheap or not in a position to match your contribution as by law. Then you can't gamble your savings because you need lots of cash on hand. Interest on savings are way below inflation.

WTF! Yes, I just filled up the Jimmy at the Gas Drain.

If it wasn't for the hard working guys on a 401, I would hope the stock market would just Fu(king crash. Time for a reboot.

JUST fu(king CRASH

There. I said it and feel much better...

Based on my experience, that's not true. Of course, I was fortunate most all during my years of punching a clock, I had a trade.

The MOST employers you are talking about are in the general labor or services. For the most part, those are temporary positions. No one spends all their working years flippin buggers or pumping gas.

I guess being able to turn a lump of cold roll into just about anything don't count as skilled labor these days.

Of course it don't.

Why should it?

I am not knocking those that do that work. I am sure most of them work hard and deserve what they earn. But, it's not skilled labor. A plumber is skilled labor. A printer is skilled labor. An electrician is skilled labor. A line man is skilled labor. Etc, etc, etc.

I was a flexographic printer for 25 years. Served a full 5 year apprenticeship before full journeyman status.

Look at it this way if they ask for Fire and Iron and then beat it into something it can be done. All other material's is kinda a hobby.

I ran a printing press about as big as a house.

That's far different than an assembly line.

Google "flexographic printing".

So you pushed some buttons and would catch some paper at the end. But the guys that built that printing press the size of a house from blueprints is not considered as "skilled labor"?
