2746 Grown men still living at Mom's house

.....And Bf with three teen boys went to ACL-Live at the Moody Theater to see Slayer with special Guests Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus last night. I know, I should know better than to expose impressionable young men with bands like this but i was once that teen boy too. Skate boards, and thrash metal are a right of passage. Two of these teen boys spend their free time jamming in my game room, one on bass and the other on guitar. Their musical interests are much broader at their age then i…

I ran across this the other day and it immediately reminded me of the great leaders (bosses) that I worked for (in and out of the military) as well as the really bad ones (mostly in the private sector).

I have been retired for a number of years and a couple of the people I worked for in the private sector or served under in the military are still important parts of my life as friends, mentors and counselors as I watch middle age in the rear view mirror.

Manufacturing Jobs in the U.S. as a Career Choice

Posted by Robert in Ohio on November 19, 2014 at 8:02am 1 Comment

Manufacturing in America Infographic Screenshot.jpg

I saw this on LinkeIn and while the numbers can be argued, the underlying fact that fewer people are choosing the manufacturing floor as a career than ever before.

The offshoring of jobs is certainly a factor, automation another, but as the operations/production based is renewed as part of the revival of the middle class who will fill those skilled…

Veterans who don't make enough to buy food and housing for their families.  Only a very small percentage of military families get to live in base housing.

How long has it been bad for the working class. Income equality died.

What states have the worst income inequality?  Jobs sent overseas is destroying the country. Republican Congress men and Congress Women have been blocking all attempts to stop paying tax deferments to Corporations who send jobs overseas.  First Company who got super rich off of this was Mitt Romney's.

Do not get payed enough to survive.

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2014/04/19/food-a19.html ; Not making a living wage continues to increase at an alarming rate of 8% per year.  Congress refuses to stop Tax deferments to Companies sending jobs overseas.  How can this continue without a revolution?
