This:
"Conservative economists have it wrong. The underlying problem isn't that so many Americans have priced themselves out of the global/high-tech labor market. It's that they're getting a smaller and smaller share of the pie."

It's convenient to forget that while the average American is getting less of the pie, the top 2% are getting more. With their extra wealth they are creating organizations to pit worker against worker. So far this tactic is working.

I was thinking the same thing. I thought it looked familiar. I'll merge them. Thanks.

Are we making progress on the jobs front? The Bureau of Labor
Statistics reports 192,000 new jobs in February (220,000 new jobs in the
private sector and a drop in government employment), and a drop in the
overall unemployment rate from 9 to 8.9 percent.


We're heading in the right direction but far too slowly to make a
real dent in unemployment. To get the unemployment rate down to 6
percent by 2014 we'd need over 300,000 new jobs a month, every month,
between now and then.


Overall, the number of unemployed Americans -- 13.7 million -- is
about the same as it was last month. The number working part time who'd
rather be working full time -- 8.3 million -- is also about the same.

Everything is pretty much the same for unemployment numbers except for the rate? I don't see how the overall rate fell.
