We Need the Jobs Back Now!

As the candidates for President of the United Sates discuss ways to improve employment opportunities in the U.S.A., they should focus on a few very important points:

1. America has over 29 million registered businesses. They include major corporations employing thousands as well as medium-sized businesses, local stores and the self-employed.

2. Presently, the 29 million businesses employ 142 million Americans and could employ tens-of-millions more if business incentives were implemented to keep jobs in the U.S.A.

3. America's population is over 314 million people with 142 million people presently employed. For a successful economy America needs at least 60% of its people employed. That means we need around 188 million full and part time jobs available at all times. It also means America needs 46 millions more jobs for our present and growing population. If a portion of America's businesses could employ a few additional people each to meet the demands of American consumers, millions of Americans could be employed and ten-of-millions more as America’s industries are restored.

4. It is well known that large numbers of America's industries left the U.S. to escape rising taxes, rising operational costs and growing regulations. Most brand name items formerly made in the U.S.A. are still available in American stores, but the labels now list them as foreign made. However, those imported items are being sold in America's stores for the same cost as if they were made in the U.S.A., so why aren't we manufacturing more products used by the American people here in the U.S.A.

A review of these few basic points outlines why America finds itself without enough jobs to employ its work eligible people and why America is more than $16 trillion in debt. The big question is, do the candidates for president fully understand America's situation and understand how URGENT it is to address the JOBS situation, loss of industries and growing debt?

In America, the land of many opportunities, people should not be unemployed or be lacking skills that could employ them for a lifetime. The presidential candidates should address the issues discussed in this commentary so we know where they feel America is headed in the future.
