Why work when it doesn't even pay?
Grisly labor numbers via. Zero Hedge today:
Things just keep getting worse for the American worker, and by implication US economy, where as we have shown many times before, it pays just as well to sit back and collect disability and various welfare and entitlement checks, than to work. The best manifestation of this: the number of people not in the labor force which in March soared by a massive 663,000 to a record 90 million Americans who are no longer even looking for work. This was the biggest monthly increase in people dropping out of the labor force since January 2012, when the BLS did its census recast of the labor numbers.
I can't even wrap my mind around these numbers but know with absolute certainty that every single economic problem we face has been caused by the very same folks trying to "fix" things now - our D.C. overlords.
Exit thought: Could this have anything to do with America's malaise?
