    And they're not asses. They are protecting their company. We can't afford 60 full timers. Fact is, it seems to me that the affordable care act was let about medical care, and more about a federal full time hour mandate.
    I don't know what your trade is but it's obviously hell, that or you're horrible at your job...

    Retail. I work for BJ's Wholesale Club, a competitor for Sam's Club, Costco.

    I've been promoted three times in the last two years, from 9 an hour, to over 50k a year after bonus. So I assume I'm not horrible.

    True, but in a very authoritarian manner. My union takes away my ability to do individual bargaining with my employer. Because of that, I get paid as little as everyone else.

    I'm angry for a vast multitude of reasons. It could be its own thread. Things that make me angry, lol.

    Tells what story? Because your original premise is dead in the water. The U4 rate is always higher than the U3, by definition.
    The number of Discouraged workers has not increased,
    while employment has. These facts do much to explain why you've glaringly failed to provide any documentation for any of your claims in the way of supporting data.




    The bolding of the term currently is rather unnecessary. This is the definition that has been used for many administrations prior.

    Oh good lord ... nothing more needs to be said.

    Thought about running for a union office to change that?

    Probably a good move on your part. Try to work on that quote butchering too.
