      There ALREADY are Laws on the Books -- to put Americans back to work again.

      Senators Humphrey and Hawkins thought that keeping America Working, was important enough -- YES -- to pass a Law to forever encourage this as our National goal ...

      [...]
      In the United States, the Humphrey-Hawkins Full Employment Act of 1978 allows the government to create a "reservoir of public employment" in case private enterprise does not provide sufficient jobs. These jobs are required to be in the lower ranges of skill and pay so as to not draw the workforce away from the private sector. However, the act did not establish such a reservoir (it only authorized it), and no such program has been implemented in the United States, though the unemployment rate has generally been above the rate (3%) targeted by the act.


      IAnd the fine print of the Full Employment Act instructs the Fed to sync up their Policies with the President's stated employment goals ...

      -- Requires the Chairman of the Federal Reserve to connect the monetary policy with the Presidential economic policy.
