Jeff: "That said, there are also solutions which may be taken by workers (including enhancing their education to allow them to be suitable for employment in more highly compensated professions"And yet we are cutting support for education and driving tuition costs up to make it harder for the generations that follow us to climb the ladder.We are creating a growing cheap labor pool of undereducated high school dropouts and immigrants to compete with peasants in China and Pakistan.And we are simultaneously cutting programs that enable people to provide for their families.There IS a social contract to provide affordable education and healthcare to children to enable them to compete.And in the interim, there IS a social contract to at least build a society where people can feed their families. My Dad made the jump from farm boy to attorney in part thanks to WWII and the GI bill. That made it easier for me to go to college and law school.Now my generation is working to make it harder for succeeding generations to make that jump.I agree that we have wasted too much time on this thread, but I knocked it down from 100 posts to 50 by simply putting desertdave on ignore.
