Friday, September 2nd, the latest jobs report was released; new job creation is flat. Unemployment appears intractable without intervention. We at the School have added to the rolls of those unemployed over the last two years because of the large budget cuts we suffered.
I’ve never met an unemployed person who doesn’t want to work. Lines at recent job fairs show that there are a lot of people desperately seeking work—to no avail. I am willing to pay higher taxes if we can put people to work. It’s the right thing to do.
On this Labor Day, let’s celebrate the workers of America and the world and all the people who want to work. Happy Labor Day! Barbara
