Where Will The Jobs We Need To Grow Our Economy Come From?

 

I keep hearing our politico ranting about job creation being the #1 priority to refueling our so called "recovering economy" which seems like a reasonable and logical concern and goal. The only thing I'm having a problem understanding is just where all these jobs will be coming from and who's going to get them? 

 

Many if not most Baby boomers who lost  a significant chunk of their booty in the '08 crash are not retiring and are even going back to work if they have the  necessary skill sets needed to fill these phantom jobs? If they don't possess the necessary qualifications or there positions have become eliminated by technological advancement they are taking entry level Home Depot and Wallmart jobs away from younger generations who really need employment.  

 

Then comes  "Generation X"  born between 1965-1979 who are hopefully still in the work force and raising families and need to work. However, sadly many X'ers are still "unemployed" or significantly "underemployed" or worse "unemployable". If they are working many have to work multiple menial jobs just to make ends meet.  

 

Now come the "Millennials" or "Generation Y" many whose entry level jobs are being retained and/or taken away by Baby Boomers who still need to work because they're not going to outlive their 401K;s and X'ers who need to work multiple jobs to hopefully keep paying their mortgages and providing 3 squares and a sack for their Y'ers who, unless they're fortunate enough to be "Techies" working for Google or Apple, could still be living with their parents seeking gainful employment while trying to figure out how to pay off their college educations that they can't do anything with.

 

Then there's the stark reality that millions of the jobs that would, could or should be ours for the taking now belong to China, India or some other offshore 3rd World Country quite possibly never to return.

 

If this all sounds negative.....................IT IS! There's no good news to be had here and it's going to come back to hit us right between the eyes sooner rather than later if it hasn't already for many of us. So I ask again..........................

 

Could someone please enlighten me and tell me where all these jobs are coming from and just who's going to get them?

John, They say that small business is the job incubator, but for the first time ever, more small businesses are dying than are being born. I think we can lay this at the foot of government which has established way too many obstacles to business creation and hence job creation. Regulations, regulations, regulations. Enough already.

BTW Now they want to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour. What do you think the efect of that will be?

Bill Roberts You're the one who inspired this post at the meet up last Thursday. So my sudden rant and outburst is all your fault. When I got back to my office I did a little research because I couldn't beleive that entrepreneurism in America was faltering and much to my shigren here's what I found on my first and only Google search.

In answer to your question about the minimum wage. No problem at all. We just get used to $15 big Mac's................................. Yeah right! Reduculous.

The only "job creation" I see is with the federal government - which in my book is the same as welfare, because it takes our tax dollars to fund. 

I believe the lower unemployment rates are not due to more employment, but to more people giving it up and going on welfare. 

Pray that the new congress has enough guts to start turning things back around.

Here is a link to the Death vs Birth of small business: http://www.gallup.com/businessjournal/180431/american-entrepreneurship-dead-alive.aspx

Marte Cliff Definitely agree with that. Lot's of folks have given up and we've never had more welfare recipients in our history.

Bill Roberts Thanks I'll read them albeit I'm not sure I'm ready for more reality that entrepreneurship in America is dying. It's a real sad day if that happens.
