  •  One of the most troubling results of the current (5+ / 0-)

    bargaining disparity:  business apologists, political conservatives who pontify on labor, and garden variety Republicans don't seem to think it problematic at all that millions of US jobs have been sent overseas and that the service sector is creating the greatest number of jobs-- badly paid, contingent jobs which cannot sustain families, not to mention individuals in many cases.

    The national discourse on jobs causes my brain to explode and my mind to stultify.  People who in one breath decry unions and the bargaining power of labor and who promote the offshoring of jobs so as to increase corporate profits, in a second breath demand of the President "where are the jobs?", as though the former had nothing to do with the dearth of jobs.

    The national discourse on barganing disparity in all kinds of markets is even worse.  

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
