    Certainly, you are right when you say we need more skills & better education. However, we have to have businesses to HIRE the skilled workers and pay appropriate wages for that skill. Our Starbucks counters are filled with workers with advanced degrees - the uncounted underemployed.

    I have many more skills than I had 6 years ago - yet make much less and have no advancement prospects. If it weren't for the fact that I moonlight as a web designer at night - I'd be homeless.
