Do you want to know how much of America China owns? Go to:
I had no idea the staggering amounts of money our government is borrowing every minute.
Gas Prices: $3.35 per gallon U.S. dollars
Gallon of Milk: $2.50 U.S. Dollars
American workers are underpaid and overworked. The health insurance that is provided by employers is horrible coverage and expensive.
We pay around $400 per month for health insurance.
Blue and white collar workers are unhappy. Employers are not giving raises or very little. Employers are mistreating workers because they are aware of how scarce jobs are in America.
A good job is almost impossible to find in America. The only great jobs are union jobs. For example, teachers, cops, post office and any government jobs.
Grocery prices are raising rapidly while the pay for all workers is lower than I can remember in my lifetime.
The American economy is horrible. The middle class has been the most affected by the horrible economy.
The middle class is finding it hard to survive in this economy. Many homeowners are moving to apartments or (flats). Homeownership is now a lost American dream for most people.
Lower pay, higher prices, and a terrible work environment is the current state of the American economy. The rich or very poor have not seemed to be affected much by the economy.
The middle class is slowly becoming poor.
There may only be two economic classes in America in the future: Rich or Poor.
The middle class might not exist in the future. I have a feeling this change may come much more quickly than Americans could ever imagine.

How do you get a person to do something you want?
Act like you want that person to do the opposite. Why? A persons first reaction is to say “no” to everything.
So, if you really want a person to do something your way, act like you want them to do the exact opposite. Then, they will actually do the opposite of what you say. Confusing, isn’t it? Here is a true story example.
For example: If you really want a job, do not act as if you really want the job. An employer can smell desperation a mile away.
I had an employer who actually hired me and paid me more, because I told him I would “think about it.” The employer then called me weeks later, and offered me a much higher salary. I asked my boss why he had hired me at such a higher salary, he said, “I always want, what I cannot have.”
Strange, but true.

The job market is treating private business workers unfairly. White and blue collar workers are underpaid and overworked. The working environment is horrible. Many workers are working salaried positions sometimes 70 hours per week, on a salary with no overtime pay.
I feel that the private businesses are using the economy as an excuse to treat workers poorly. White and blue collar workers alike. Pay has been lowered, but work increased. Taxes have increased, sales and income taxes. The private sector keeps complaining there are too many regulations and they are costly.
Our country needs to loosen the state, county and federal regulations so the private sector can go back to functioning normally and treating employees with some respect and value. The massive permit regulations have made it almost impossible for the housing industry to rebound. Along with EPA requirements. I worked in the housing industry for many years. I watched the industry fall and crumble due to Sarbanes-Oxley, EPA and State, and local permit regulations.
Why are we regulating the private sector so much when we need good, stable jobs?
The private sector is not going to have such jobs until we loosen the regulations and taxes, federally, state and locally.
Loosen the regulations, and jobs will magically appear.
However, the regulations and taxes are no excuse for the poor treatment of workers in the private sector. I have never seen employees treated so badly and so underpaid in my lifetime. The employers know just how far they can go before they break the law.
Employers, please show employees respect and loyalty and they will show the same to you!
Congress: Loosen the regulations and red tape!

I have been told during my job search that because I have a college degree and experience that I am “over-qualified.” What is that supposed to mean? How can a person be over-qualified? Isn’t being qualified a good thing?
Is a college degree a negative on the resume these days? Every single interview I have went to in the past few months, I have been told I am over qualified.
So, I am going back to a Nursing Aid job, even though I have years of office and accounting experience. I guess I should have spent the money on my degree on something else. Perhaps my own business?
