I agree it doesnt matter how good the economy gets if the only people benifiting are on top, economies must benifit everyone equally or they should be rubble burning rubble

Democrats running for president in 2020 say the rapid job growth and low unemploymentunder President Trump isn't enough, and say America needs to strive for a "moral" economy.


Their calls seem to reflect a consensus among Democrats on how to attack what many agree is a healthy economy that's creating jobs under Trump, and the rising influence of socialist candidates and lawmakers in the Democratic Party. Less than a year before the first primaries, Democrats appear to have settled on an argument that says the economic gains seen over the last two years aren't being "shared" with others.

"What happened to a moral responsibility, to a moral capitalism?" former Vice President Joe Biden asked an audience of students Tuesday during an event at the University of Pennsylvania.

Four and a half million more people have jobs today than did when Trump took office, what is immoral about that?

I had an economics professor ask the class, "Is it possible to have 0% unemployment?"
We all looked around for a bit and as a group responded, "No"
He said, "Of course you can."
Confused, a classmate of mine said, "How? How can we have a society where there's a job for everyone?"
The professor replied, "Simple. We can re-institute a slavery system."
We all chuckled. He didn't. He continued, "If we had slavery again, we could create a system where anyone who goes unemployed for so many months goes into a slavery system. Everyone will have work."
We all got a little uncomfortable.

The point he was making is that unemployment rates in and of themselves are meaningless. If we don't have safe working conditions, fair wages, and decent benefits, it's just a number. Unemployment cannot fully capture the economy and how it is benefiting the citizens.

What policies did Obama promote to create a part time work force?

45% OF THE JOBS CREATED from 2009-2016 were PART TIME JOBS..

Why..

Obamacare was one of the biggest reasons. THAT WAS WHAT WAS IN THE BILL that we found out AFTER IT PASSED.
if a worker worked more than 28 hours there was a mandated fee that was required to be paid by the employers

If it was Obamacare, why did the trend to part time jobs begin 20 years before?
