10,000,000 American Men, 25-54, are Unemployed

One in Six American Men Not Working
February 13, 2014

from the National Center for Policy Analysis:

More than one in six men between the ages of 25 and 54 is unemployed, says the Wall Street Journal.

More than 10 million men ages 25 to 54 do not have jobs today, a function of the slow economy as well as technology and globalization, say economists.

•In the early 1970s, 6 percent of American men 25 to 54 were unemployed.
•By the end of 2007, 13 percent were out of work.
•In 2009 at the peak of the recession, almost 20 percent of American men were without jobs.
•In December 2013, that figure was at 17 percent. Two thirds of these men reported that they were not looking for work, which means that they are not labeled as “unemployed” in official unemployment statistics.
The more a person is unemployed, the bleaker their prospects become. In fact, 40 percent of men who are currently looking for jobs say that they have had no work for at least six months.

Many economists say that those who have little in the way of marketable skills are not able to find work that makes it worthwhile to “get them off the couch,” especially if taking a job requires a move, a lengthy commute, or giving up government benefits.

The United States has also seen a rise in disability benefits over the years.

•In 1989, only 3 percent of men who were between ages 25 and 64 collected federal disability benefits, but that number was at 5.5 percent in 2013.
•Over 2 million of those men (half of that figure) were 54 years old or younger.
•Once people begin receiving disability payments, very few return to work.
•Even those whose disability benefits application is rejected are unlikely to return to work, according to research data.

Obama Payola to Send Dufus as Ambassador to Norway

Minnesota is called Viking country because of its Scandinavian passive, quiet, honest and hard working rather than the violent past kind 1,000 years back.

Its citizens have not yet filed complaints about the community’s NFL team name, ‘the Vikings’ as being racist.

Until the era of Al Franken and Barack Obama, and the state’s present attorney general, one could be proud of what the state produced. Graft was unacceptable, trust trusted, marriage and fathers existed. The unworthy had generally emanated from the devious Minneapolis newspapers and for the past couple of decades, the uncivilized in the Mill City black community.

Recently, with the arrival of Obama and Franken on the Twin City scene, the city’s Paper and Party have replaced tolerance and education.

Mark Waldeland sent this article from the newspaper’s electronic department breaking the Strib’s habit of covering up for the crimes, sins, and endless measures of incompetence of our beloved, forthright first half-white American president:

OBAMA-TSUNIS: SELECTION FOR AMBASSADOR TO NORWAY CANNOT STAND

by: T. MICHAEL DAVIS in the Mpls StarTribune:

The Senate must not approve a nominee who clearly doesn’t understand the country to which he’s being sent.

President Obama’s nominee for U.S. ambassador to Norway, George J. Tsunis, has succeeded in doing what few have ever accomplished. Tsunis — from New York, worth $85 million, and a key donor to Democrats and Republicans alike — managed to turn himself into a mockery and irreparably damaged goods all at the same time. So much so that Anderson Cooper of CNN dedicated one of his “RidicuList” segments to Tsunis’ foibles.

So what did Tsunis do?

Well, he acknowledged he has never even been to Norway, the country to which he desires to become ambassador. He repeatedly referred to its prime minister as a “president,” apparently unaware Norway is a parliamentary democracy. He attacked Norway’s governing center-right coalition by disparaging the nation’s third-largest political party — a key player that holds no less than seven minister posts — mistakenly characterizing it as a group of “fringe elements” that “spew their hatred.” Asked to identify and discuss economic opportunities the United States might benefit from in Norway, Tsunis had no idea — and stumbled all the more when asked how he might increase trade. He then sheepishly thanked Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., for a “save” when tossed a lifeline.

The fallout has been colossal.
