Here's The Painful Truth About What It Means To Be 'Working Poor' In America

Commented May 19, 2014 at 22:15:10 in Politics

“In twenty years, 70% of all jobs won't exist. They'll be taken over by computers and robots. The working poor is the new normal.”

pollclaire on May 20, 2014 at 00:26:13

“That's right. In 1900, 80% of America worked in agriculture. Now it's about 1%.

Then the base of employment shifted into manufacturing, and 30-40% worked there. Now it's 8%.

The service and financial sectors are now going through the same efficiencies, leaving us with... an ownership society.

There will be oversupply of labor for the forseeable future.

Own something and you might be alright in the long run.”

“Mr. Paul needs to be reminded that the Patriot Act was enacted by a Republican Congress, under a Republican President. Mr. Obama had nothing to do with it. Since Mr. Paul is in Congress why doesn't he do something about it and introduce a bill to abolish the Patriot Act?”

SpringBranchConservative on Mar 20, 2014 at 09:16:02

“Yes with a majority of the democrats voting for it in 2001. Sorry but the Senate was actually 50 democrats and 49 Republicans in 2001 when the Patriot Act was signed into law.”

sloopyinca on Mar 20, 2014 at 08:30:06
