40 Million More Jobs Are Needed!

After a close look at the monthly United States Department of Labor Statistics report on how many Americans are unemployed, more people are asking who is accountable for the loss of jobs in America.

As of now, America has 118 million full time jobs and 28 million part time jobs for a total of 146 million jobs. However, in a total population of 318 million, it is estimated that 60% of Americans are able-bodied and of working age, all of whom should be employed. This means we need over 40 million more jobs to be at the 187 million jobs level necessary to restore America’s economy and allow people to support themselves.

Supporters of the Buy American Made Campaign have seen that our national elected leaders permitted the over taxation and over regulation of businesses which made doing business outside of America better than doing business here at home. In order to understand how employment affects life in America, I urge you to look at the United States Debt Clock which is posted on the top of the front page of AmericanWorkersRadio.com.

The disturbing statistics listed on the U.S. Debt Clock offer additional incentives for us to support American Made products so current jobs are maintained and additional jobs can be created. We all know that America lost jobs to globalization and automation, but over taxation and regulation also drove businesses and jobs out of America, and still no one is being held accountable for where America’s economy is today.

On the bright side, every day America’s consumers are helping make a difference, one purchase at a time. When you're out shopping, look for, ask for and purchase American made products whenever possible so JOBS in America can be restored. Kindly help our efforts and spread the word.
