The Unfortunate Economic Truth of The Employed Earning American
Employment as a profession assumes, we protect you. Adoption of our creed means you must trust us.
The unfortunate truth is we are not there to protect you when you need it most.
Jobs is a big topic in today’s environment. The method of income for most Americans is employment. Lack of employment means lack of financial stability. The intolerable yells of our current president fools unaffected into believing jobs are back.
Jobs are not back.
Financial pain is wrought into the bones of the employee seeking to support their steps on the foundation of our government.
A FEW HIGHLIGHTS OUR CURRENT ECONOMIC STATE
Data collected by the Census Bureau captures financial pain embedded at the core of employed Americans.
For the week ended July 21, the most recent numbers available, roughly 29 million U.S. adults (nearly 12.1 percent) reported their households frequently did not have enough to eat the preceding seven days. This date was compiled according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Nearly 15 million renters said they were behind on rent during the same period.
Who suffers the most?
Is this really a hard guess?
Employed Black and Latino renters suffer most.
Despite all the claims of progression the group most exposed are the ones historically shown to be affected most.
And I read a sign that read, “Blacks for Trump” the other day. Go figure.
In July, 44 percent of Black and 41 percent of Latino renters, respectively, said they had no or slight confidence they could make next month’s payment. The other sentiment they communicated was they were likely to defer it. The data was according to a U.S. Census Bureau survey. About 21 percent of White renters felt the same, according to an Urban Institute analysis of the data collected between May 28 and June 9.
MY JOB IS GONE MY RENT IS DUE WHAT NOW
I want you to stop reading for just a minute. Think. What made you choose to do what you do? Was it passion? Did you seek safety? Were you scared of unknown?
I know, someone said you must work. You finally had to pay bills. Reality came over night. Childhood dreams died.
Your answer to the life you live is simple.
Idealism is wonderful. Often idealism does not conform to reality. After all, you need money to safeguard necessities.
An idea does not feed you nor does it clothe your children.
My dear employed American, you only chose what you do because you believe it is your most likely path to income.
Income comes to those following its path. In an economy a pendulum exists. From structure to disorder our condition of financial reality shifts.
In structured environments we enjoy income privilege entitlements for our time. In a disordered environment we enjoy income privilege solely based on addition we provide to others which maximize their profit.
The sad reality is everyone becomes monetized in a disordered environment. The climate we have now is full of disorder.
YOUR SELECTION YOUR CHOICE
The idea someone will come to save you must be removed. There is no one looking to save a stranger. As a collective a stranger can become known. As an individual a stranger is not recognized.
You cannot make someone care about a person they have never seen. Abstract emotional empathy does not work well for most people. Most people do not want to imagine a mother being put on the street. So, most people will put it “Out of Sight Out of Mind.”
Ask yourself, “What job could I do to contribute to someone’s profit?”
Anytime you ask a question you find an answer. You will find a job if you ask this question. It is time you wake up. There are five industries thriving in today’s climate. Do you know what they are? 1) Logistics, 2) Groceries, 3) Agriculture, 4) Medical & 5) Technology.
The demand is very high. Stop asking income to come back to your structured environment. Go to its disordered environment. You simply must stop hoping and start doing. Get rid of your unemployment today. It might require you to learn a different skill or just walk on to a farm. Yes, I said that. Go pick fruit and vegetables. It is paying about $20 bucks an hour.
Hard work actually pays. Just ask anyone Trump complains about.
These people have been doing it a very long time and have virtually no unemployment. These people are your model citizens. You know who I am talking about. Stop asking for income on your terms and obtain it on the economy’s terms.
To your employed knowledge success!
