    Greatest job creators?

    That is the question. For the purpose of this poll it is a little of the chicken and egg situation

    The greatest job creator in the private sector is demand.

    In the public sector, the greatest job creators are the politicians.

    True. But in the private sector, are those in power not an impediment?

    Well, I'm not sure about that...if one pictures the United States of America as the most humongous aircraft carrier of all time, it takes quite a bit of momentum to turn it around.

    We are undertaxing the wealthy and underpaying laborers. It's not good for the country. My concern is more with the second than the first, however.

    I agree with my primary concern being more pay for the laborers also. For that to happen for many if not most our skill sets must be higher. Ongoing government, private enterprise cooperation for skills training as needed or helpful would in my opinion be a giant plus.

    Tommy Boy lost two terrific jobs to bankruptcy/outsourcing/takeover. He worked in a glass plant for 20 years. That company moved its plant; he worked at Outboard Marine. That company went bankrupt, reorganized and moved after being taken over. In both cases, union demands hastened their demise. He's a "laborer" through and through. Unprepared, at 55 (then), to 'increase his skill set.'

    Education is the key. And those that don't have it? Are either going to get it, start their own businesses, or become a drain on society. That integral part of the American Dream doesn't exist anymore.

    There is no single "job creator". Our economy is primarily based on the sale of consumer products. Said products requires an investor to fund it, competent workers to build it, and a consumer both desires and can afford it. While the Federal government can influence the system with a variety of policies, it is not the driving force behind employment.
