Oh, By The Way

Herewith a brief follow-up on the "You Deserve A Break Today" post.  Perhaps the most important factoid in the EPI piece by Lawrence Mishell is the finding that the most desperate and despairing of the unemployed are those with the most education, not the unskilled and uncredentialed.  This gives lie to the ugly charge the Republican right wing plutocratic propaganda machine relentlessly churns out, that the jobless are unemployed because they lack education and skills.  The data say just the opposite.  In other words, there are no "good" jobs to be had out there.  Mickey D's is looking better all the time.

Also, this is the link for the EPI.  Sorry for the oversight.
