Labor in America Does Not Pay
Working used to be a proud expression of manhood. Since the days of “Rosie the Riveter”, mothers and daughters joined the workforce in mass. Building infrastructure, developing commercial enterprises and producing an endless assembly line of goods led to the greatest expansion of the middle class in American history. In a mere fifty years of planned and coordinated downsizing and outsourcing, the only outcome from honest work is the sweat from your brow. Folks still expend energy and labor at tasks, but few earn a living wage from engaging in industry or commerce.
