1. The unemployment rate among college grads is somewhere around 5%

The fact of the matter is that unskilled labor has a huge problem. It is not a new problem and the prospects for people without skills aren't going to improve, ever.

That's a problem because we need some heavy lifting type jobs for certain people. I am not sure what the answer is, however we do know with impressive accuracy how much we need to raise GDP in order to raise employment. We know how to raise GDP. It really is that simple.

"Conservatives" muck that up with their lies, but the truth is that in our current state we need more government spending.
