The Big Lie on Unemployment – “Skills Shortage


Robert Oak at Economic Populist has rebutted the notion that hiring is stalled due to a “skills shortage.”  The latest news from the masters of disaster is that there are 5 million jobs in the United States open because of a skills shortage.  Not sow as Oak skill fully demonstrates as he demolishes that claim empirically.

There is no skills shortage, there never was a skill shortage. There is a shortage of good employers who do not discriminate, age discriminate, ship jobs to India, China, Brazil and treat their workers like cannon fodder. There also is a shortage of jobs, pure and simple. Put U.S. workers first. Demand these employers quit their inane, harsh, wage repressing, discriminatory labor practices. Put a few of of these traitorous employers in jail and sue ’em. Deal with trade and offshore outsourcing, invest in America and Americans. Then and only then will we might actually get somewhere to putting people back to work.  Robert Oak

    The link takes you to an article that uses the best available data an analysis to rebut the “skills shortage” argument. U.S. employers are hedging until they’re sure that outsourcing won’t cost them tax credits. The jobs that they need are capable of being performed by the very workers that they had to lay off. They’re just looking for the best deal at the expense of citizens.
