Labor Day 2020

I had decided not to write a ‘Labour Day’ post this year, for my heart simply wasn’t in it. Then I came across Brosephus’ post that pretty much summed up my own thoughts, only more eloquently than I likely could have done. Thank you Brosephus, for this thoughtful post. Let us hope that next year will be better for everyone.

The Mind of Brosephus

Just like the year 2020 has been so far, Labor Day isn’t a “happy” day either. While the real-life Fantasy Island host, Donald Trump, tries to paint a rosy picture,

Reality tells an entirely different story.

The truth about job growth is that the sitting president has very little to do with creating jobs outside of filling federal job vacancies. Job growth or loss is dictated by the private sector and the decisions made in corporate boardrooms across the world.

Yes, I hear that any who are so foolish as to disagree with him are quickly shown the door. An oath of complete fealty are the job requisites. I wouldn’t last 10 minutes in his employ!!!
