"Young workers don't need education in "turning up in time" - they need job opportunities that pay at least a living wage."

Very true, & the Oxfam report released today should open up a lot of people's eyes as to the staggering amount of income inequality that currently exists in the world.

It's very retro out there - a rerun of the 1970's..but even fewer decent jobs & thos few decent jobs demand Over-qualified applicants! Back in the day, you either were related to or good friends with someone to get a decent factory job, most other type jobs did NOT include healthcare insurance (mainly because they were NON-Union!).. it seems the same still holds true. But there are fewer factories today & many of them are now non-Union, though they must pay "prevailing wage" they still don't pay healthcare, but instead "make it available for a reduced price"!:(

Actually the problem is the monetary system and the way that "free market" works. We need a global reformation of our valious... Reformation of our societies... And to see the world as one - humanity - and not as individuals or nations or any forms of divisions...
Does anyone understands what I want to say? :)

Something like the "Venus Project", but we need many steps and probably generations to succeed.
Let's start with a smile :)

There are some who don't want to work, but I believe that the vast majority of people want to find good full-time work.

The way I see it, most of this nation's problems have the same root cause: Greed. Too many CEOs care about only the bottom line, and anything they can do to slash their costs to the bone so they can keep their obscenely inflated salaries even more obscene, and their shareholders happy. Hence outsourcing jobs, vigorously opposing increases to the minimum wage, and so on. Thank goodness there are a few business owners who have not been seduced by the dark side of capitalism.
