Hardly Confident About The Long Term Well Being Of The Younger Generation [View all]

Even though I have a lot of confidence about the advance of technology that will improve life and living in unimaginable ways. On the other hand I have little confidence about the future economic prospects of the younger generation. The Reagan revolution has set into motion events that will make their life much more difficult and leave them with a "Blade Runner" world. And you can thank the GOP for all of it.

With no job security and the loss of 90% of mid range jobs in the economy $25,000 will look good in the future. At this point 70% of the jobs being created by generous big business will NOT feed a flee. 20% will be marginally living wage. And only about 10% will be viable jobs.

And article just came out in the AP that verifies what is going on. Right to work, work at will, end of labor laws et al will guarantee that this generation will not enjoy any of the work benefits their parents and grand parents did. What is amazing is that their parents and grandparents voted for the Reagan revolution over time. Or enough did anyway. The GOP was kept in power long enough to guarantee what is happening.

Now the chickens are coming home to roost.
