A few thousand temporary construction jobs and a few handouts will not fix the job problem. Maybe the crash will be postponed for a year, but we can't do a trillion dollar 'stimulus' every year. If we want to re-establish ourselves as world leaders in the economic sense, we need for the permanent good paying jobs to return, otherwise we will be reduced immensely. The financial sector was propping up the economy, providing trillions in funny money, that people spent willy-nilly, providing work millions of jobs. Now it's all gone, and the 'real' jobs like tech and manufacturing are not being done by Americans. We will soon be reduced to a third world country.

Will never happen.
The only way is to lower the middle class standard of living so we can compete with the rest of the world and that is what's happening right now.

I don't wana work for the crapy money you pay me and disrespect you show every day! I don't wana work cause I cannot make a living from what you pay. I have mortgage and kids to send to collage. Take the millions you pay top executives and divide it among people who do the job with patients day and night and then give us a call.

Nonsense. They're importing nurses, and sub-standard nurses at that, from Third World nations because they can pay them less. Americans deserve to be paid a salary that allows them to get ahead in life. And nurses--upon whom lives depend--should be paid a very good wage. Instead, they are exploited and, as such, the enrollment in nursing school has gone down.

New Orleans was built by illegal workers because construction companies didn't want to pay Americans a fair wage.

Mexican people don't have any greater work ethic than Americans. If they did, their nation would be working a bit better, wouldn't it?

All this sounds like is many Americans need to get off their lazy asses and start businesses to compete with unethical businesses, by providing better quality products and better service. Maybe I'm alone on this one but I would be willing to pay more to achieve a higher level of consumer satisfaction.
Question is how many whiners are willing to meet my challenge?

The Mexicans generally seem to be hard working individuals, and they tend to do manual labor jobs for less than Americans are willing to. However the hospitals can't pay for example a Filipino nurse a lower wage than an American nurse at the same hospital without breaking some sort of law.
The same applies for the Indian information technology workers, except that they can get around it sometimes by going thru 'offshore' who are in contact with 'onshore' Indian workers. The American manufacturing industries need some sort of help to get started again, unless we want our endless debt to be held by the Chinese.

That is the problem with our counter parts on the right. They want to further deteriorate the middle class.
