I was just agreeing with your statement about the last two years—the two years with explosive economic growth brought on by pro-business economic policies, deregulation, and competitive corporate taxes.
Because, in my experience, these “non-working” people end up becoming bad parents, bad neighbors, in some cases violent and devious criminals which makes their neighborhood worse and pulls down their whole community’s productivity.
Work provides meaning and countless benefits to humans. People who sit at home on opiates watching Netflix and raging on Facebook and Twitter all day have negative externalities on the rest of the economy.
I did some economics courses and I’m fully onboard with fk trump, but I don’t agree with the unemployment being “too low” this is only a bad thing for companies because wages will rise and they have to accept “less skilled” workers. But this is garbage because every human has value and to say it’s okay for some people who WANT a job to be unemployed simply because it’ll allow companies to keep wages lower is something else. Every person has a right to get money and live decently, not screwing over 5% because it makes life for companies better :)
The problem with too low unemployment is that employees can’t find people to hire. If you read the news you’ll see many small businesses complaining about that. It’s hard to find employees with skills companies need when almost everyone is already employed. This in turn slows down economic growth.
Also, yes, people do get paid more (see companies like McDonalds paying above minimum wage in certain areas now), but that will raise prices, and so net-net the effect will be zero in the medium term.
Unfortunately dems spent last couple years blaming the loss on Russia rather than trying to understand why they really lost.
Trump was caught saying he sexually assults women and still won. His supporters don't care about his conduct at all. Let's quit wasting time and focus on policies that can win (not going full sjw, for example)
💯 but unfortunately most democrats aren’t as wise as you. They are gonna keep focusing on the Mueller report, calling trump racist, and trying to get his tax returns instead of proposing some policies that people might give a fuck about
