The unemployment rate of people in the 20s and 30s is over 50%. They see the American workplace as having no place for them.
The result of this is that there is a significant segment of our society does not see getting up and going to work as something they need to do. Not having a job was once considered a sign of laziness or personal failure. Today, it is becoming an accepted norm and someone else’s fault. Big business, big banks, the government, foreign competition, NAFTA, big unions, China, and a host of other factors are blamed for people’s inability to find work.
The government’s response to this situation has fostered this change in the American work ethic.
